On this edition of The History File, Cam Edwards discusses the glory days of gun control. Enacted in November of 1993, the Brady Bill went into effect in February of 1994. During this same period when anti-gun democrats were prolific on the federal level and Bill Clinton was president, the Omnibus Crime Bill including the Clinton Gun Ban was passed in August 1994. Little known today, the next step before the political climate shifted in the November 1994 elections was a bill called Brady II calling for outrageous gun control such as "arsenal license" requirements for citizens who owned more than 20 guns, sweeping gun bans, outlawing magazines that hold more than six rounds, extensive fingerprinting, special taxes for gun owners and much more.
