Bill Clinton: Enacting Gun Control ‘One Of The Greatest Honors Of My Life’

Clinton was speaking at a Brady Campaign’s gun control awards ceremony in Los Angeles, May 4.  Breitbart News previously reported that Brad Pitt and Adam McKay were co-chairs for the ceremony. And People magazine reports that Clinton attended and gave “an impromptu 30-minute speech at [the] event.”  Clinton referenced signing the Brady Handgun Prevention Act in 1993, which eventually spawned the background check system for gun purchases in 1998. He also referenced signing an “assault weapons” ban in 1994, which included a ban on “high capacity” ammunition magazines. He said, “One of the great honors of my life was signing the Brady law, and then a year later in the crime bill the assault weapons ban and the ammunition clip ban.”  read
