Clinton archives on gun manufacturer settlement demands
I was just researching in the Clinton Presidential Library archives, and came across this. The cover sheet is my summary, the rest is a fax from "Deputy Secretary" (of what, is unstated) to Clinton's Domestic Policy Council, relating to settlement terms to demand in the lawsuits against gun manufacturers (which were then being brought by New York, some other jurisdictions, and private plaintiffs, and held the risk of bankrupting the industry.
It lists demands which would have achieved most of the antigun legislative objectives, without the work of getting Congress to agree. One gun a month, gun registration, eliminate non-inventory small FFLs, no guns capable of taking greater than ten round magazines, no sales of greater than ten round magazines, no juveniles allowed on gun dealer premises without a parent or guardian, gun manufacturers to finance a fund to propagandize on the dangers of guns, etc., etc.. And all without asking Congress to pass legislation.
