Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act
Brady Law, imposing a wait-period to buy a hand-gun, went into effect.
It amended the #1968GCA and imposed a 5-day waiting period for handgun purchases (now gone)
Required a new National Instant Criminal Background Check System
What has this done to prevent crime? “They” create it, they see it’s failure and they demand MORE infringement…. #NICS#BradyBill #GunControl
