Advocacy group says ND gun laws are weak

BISMARCK — An organization that advocates for the prevention of gun violence says gun laws in North Dakota rank among the weakest in the nation.

The Washington, D.C.-based, nonpartisan Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence says only seven states have less stringent gun laws than North Dakota.

The report rates California and New Jersey laws best. The seven states listed as worse than North Dakota are Alaska, Arizona, Idaho, Kentucky, Louisiana, Oklahoma and Utah.

North Dakota earned only four out of 100 points on a scorecard measuring gun laws.
