One of the crown jewels of the gun control movement was the passage of the Brady Bill during the first term of Bill Clinton’s administration. The bill created the five day waiting period for handgun purchases, and was hailed as the first step in halting handgun violence in America.
Of course, prior to the Brady Bill the anti-gun groups had claimed several other key gun control laws would end gun violence as we knew. Those failures did little to dim their unprecedented optimism over what the Brady Bill would mean to America.
