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


 

1911 Patented Today (1911)

1911 was patented on Feb 14, 1911

The 1911 was formally adopted by the Army on March 29, 1911, when it was designated Model of 1911, later changed to Model 1911, in 1917, and then M1911, in the mid-1920s.

The story goes, at the end of 1910, John Browning shot Six thousand rounds from a single pistol over the course of two days. When the gun began to grow hot, it was simply immersed in water to cool it. The Colt gun passed with no reported malfunctions
