The informal comment period will close on Monday, March 16, 2015. ATF has already received more than 80,000 comments, which will be made publicly available as soon as practicable. Although ATF endeavored to create a proposal that reflected a good faith interpretation of the law and balanced the interests of law enforcement, industry, and sportsmen, the vast majority of the comments received to date are critical of the framework, and include issues that deserve further study. Accordingly, ATF will not at this time seek to issue a final framework. After the close of the comment period, ATF will process the comments received, further evaluate the issues raised therein, and provide additional open and transparent process (for example, through additional proposals and opportunities for comment) before proceeding with any framework.

Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act (1994)

Feb 28, 1994 
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
