Do you have specific bill that is confusing or a question about?  Most firearm related bills are to limit our constitutional rights. Not all, but most.  The popvox page will show you how people are leaning and where they are. If you continue to scroll down you will see who sponsored the bill (sometimes a good indicator for an anti gun bill) and peoples comments.

Start with the description and then go into the full bill text. Keyword searches in the text can help make lengthy bills easier to get through.

For example the one that says "To amend the Higher Education
Act of 1965 to require institutions of higher education to
disclose their concealed carry or open carry policies with respect
to firearms, and for other purposes."
Are there places that ban guns and don't tell you about it? It
seems like places that ban guns would want everyone to know
that they can't have a gun there otherwise what's the point of
the ban?  Or does this mean that places where they aren't banned
would put up signs that say guns are allowed?
Other ones have names or descriptions that sound like a good
thing but then further down it sounds like its actually for gun
control.

The higher education bill, the full text just now became available, will require universities to disclose its concealed or open carry policies in a prominent place on its website and on all promotional materials used for prospective students and to report all crimes involving a firearm that occur on campus, in or on non-campus buildings/property and on public property near the campus for the previous 2 years. You can decide on what you think of that, but my initial thought was advertising where there are unarmed students.

 As for the names or start of a description, you are right. The Democrats are masters at deception and they hope the majority of people wont read past the title or short description. Like the Hate Crime Prevention Act - "everyone" wants to stop hate crimes, but if you read the full text, it would change the law that says people with felonies lose their gun rights to include those charged with an enhanced misdemeanor for a hate crime lose their gun rights. To me, that's a slippery slope before all enhanced misdemeanors are added.

Or the Stop Illegal Trafficking in Firearms essentially reiterates laws already on the books, with some modifications to punishments. What's the point of that?
