Did you know that former President Ronald Reagan supported the passage of the "Brady Bill" dating back to 1991, which was named after Reagan's press secretary? White House Press Secretary James Brady was shot during an assassination attempt on President Reagan's life in 1981
The "Brady Bill", which was passed by Congress and signed into law in 1993 by President Bill Clinton, with the support of President Reagan. The "Brady Bill" imposed a five-day waiting period for law enforcement to review the background of a prospective handgun purchaser before a licensed dealer was entitled to complete the sale of a handgun to that person.
