With the growing number of reports on television about violent crimes at school it is no wonder that President Clinton is pushing for more gun control Although the number of violent crimes committed in schools is far less than the number committed at home the president feels that stricter gun laws need to be in effect In the light of the recent shootings at Columbine High School in Columbine Colorado there have been serious increases in the number of proposals to help regulate gun use I do not think that it is the guns that we need to control but the people In the last several years there have been major legislative proposals to try and regulate the sale purchase transportation and ammunition for guns Perhaps the best known is the Brady Bill On November 30 1993 the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act was enacted amending the Gun Control Act of 1968 The Brady Law imposed as an interim measure a waiting period of 5 days before a licensed importer manufacturer or dealer may sell deliver or transfer a handgun to an unlicensed individual The waiting period applies only in states without an acceptable alternate system of conducting background checks on handgun purchasers The interim provisions of the Brady Law became effective on February 28 1994 and cease to apply on November 30 1998 While the interim provisions of the Brady Law apply only to handguns the permanent provisions of the Brady Law apply to all firearms The Brady Bill requires a five-day wait for the purchase of a handgun During that time a background check is done in order to make sure that the purchaser does not have a history of violent crimes Although this bill is intended to keep guns out of the hands of the wrong people it has not had a drastic impact in the number of deaths due to guns The bill itself does not bother me
