https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/04/22/bill-clinton-uses-columbine-anniversary-to-push-more-gun-control-for-chicago/Bill Clinton used an op-ed marking the 20th anniversary of the Columbine High School attack to push more gun control for Chicago.
He also used the column to boast about background check legislation he signed into law into 1993. Those checks became effective in 1998.
Writing in the Denver Post, Clinton noted the speed with which New Zealand enacted their gun ban, following the March 15, 2019, mosque attacks. He juxtaposed that speedy ban with the situation in the U.S. where “a minority with strong views can thwart even popular legislation, supported by hard evidence.”
Because why not Bill, surely those criminals shooting up the streets of Chicago will follow the laws this time...
