The Gun Control Act of 1968 (GCA or GCA68), Pub.L. 90-618, 82 Stat. 1213 was a piece of legislation enacted by President Lyndon Johnson on October 22, 1968. The law broadly regulates the sale of firearms. It focuses greatly on interstate commerce.

Black Panthers Effect on Gun Control

The Black Panthers marched into the California state capital fully armed, leading to the arrest of some group members. Because of the visible militancy of the the group, they often faced police pressure. A number of clashes in the Chicago area left members of the Panthers and police officers either killed or wounded. According to many Calguns Foundation members, the armed open carry Black Panthers were one of the reasons that gun control increased in America, especially the Gun Control Act of 1968.
