Information Request on Tribal Gun Laws

I’m beginning research on tribal gun laws. If you would like to help, please email any information you have on tribal laws regulating guns or protecting gun rights, such as a copy of the law or information on legislative history, to me at I’m particularly interested in efforts to curb gun violence through regulation, especially laws enacted in response to mass shootings, and also in whether any tribes have stand-your-ground laws. But all tribal laws pertaining to guns are of interest to me. You can find my earlier work on tribes and the Second Amendment here.

    That is a good question, for instance, Guns are regulated by the Tribe’s Hunting Laws and the Brunot treaty for the Ute Indian Tribe of the Uintah and Ouray Indian Reservation. Guns are also used as pawn and so serial numbers are recorded and background checks completed before they are returned to owners. Guns on the reservation absolutely, hunting is a way of life or go hungry.
