This is the third in a four part series blog post spotlighting HeinOnline’s new database Gun Regulation and Legislation in America.

Should you click the box represented by four squares (located in the purple box shown above), you can select how many pages of the report you would like to view at a time, as demonstrated below:
As indicated above by the purple box, you can select 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, or 8 pages to view at a time. Currently it is set to view three pages.
Access to HeinOnline’s Gun Regulation and Legislation in America database is available through the Texas Tech Law Library website under the Electronic Databases tab.
