The Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence just released their 2014 State Scorecard! In this scorecard they rank states from A to F according to how strong their gun violence prevention laws are.
Washington State recently passed an initiative requiring background checks on all gun sales, and its grade is a B-. Oregon’s grade is a D+. We can do better, by passing background checks and other gun violence prevention laws.
