In the aftermath of the Newtown tragedy, President Obama on Wednesday announced new national gun control measures. He has already urged members of Congress to do the same.

Here is our comprehensive look at where lawmakers stand on guns, as well as political spending and voting history. Explore and share what you think Congress should do about guns in this country.

The National Rifle Association, with as many as 4 million members, is the nation’s largest organization devoted to defending gun rights and the Second Amendment.

Its lobbying wing ranks lawmakers based on their support of the “right to keep and bear arms.”

The group’s “A” through “F” letter grades are based on how voting records, public statements and responses to a questionnaire line up with the NRA’s own positions.
