There has been renewed interest in the 113th Congress for federal gun control legislation. To help members of Congress better understand the legal issues associated with current legislative proposals, the Congressional Research Service released a 17-page report titled Federal Assault Weapons Ban: Legal Issues. The report was issued February 14, 2013, and covers several topics including the Gun Control Act of 1968, the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban, legal challenges to the 1994 assault weapons ban, and the Second Amendment to the US Constitution.
