Repository of Historical Gun Laws

The online Repository of Historical Gun Laws was created by the faculty of the Center for Firearms Law at Duke Law School. “A searchable free database of gun laws from the Middle Ages to 1776 in England and from the Colonial Era to the middle of the twentieth century in the United States. This repository is intended as a resource for scholars and practitioners interested in historical laws concerning firearms and other similar weapons.”


Listing of all previous Websites of the Month with descriptions and links to the University of Hawaii catalog records.

As a service to OBS-SIS members, a MARC record of a legal website is distributed on the OBS-SIS discussion list each month. We encourage you to try it out and see if your library might want to include it in your online catalog.The links below each site name will connect you to the MARC record for the resource.  From the record you can view the website itself by following the links, or view the MARC tagging format by exporting the record and selecting the appropriate MARC format.  Website suggestions and cataloging questions should be addressed to Keiko Okuhara.
