Kopel on anniversary of Brady
Over at Volokh Conspiracy, Dave Kopel has a posting on the 12th anniversary of the Brady Act, and some interesting comments on a story that Bill Clinton told to illustrate its importance. (He claimed that a firearms dealer friend of his had inadvertently sold a gun to an escaped mental patient, who used it in crime, and the friend was not over it to this day. Investigation indicated that the killer was not an escaped mental patient, did not buy the guns, and the dealer, supposedly not over it to this day, had died years before. Other than that, we may suppose, the story was true).
