It's not about controlling crime. It's about inconveniencing gun owners
and gun buyers.
After the Brady Bill was passed, the president of HCI held a press
conference at which he stated straight out that HCI had known all along
that the bill would do nothing to reduce crime. He then brought out a
big sheaf of additional planned bills that HCI wanted to push, and said
"[The NRA] said that Brady would be the nose of the camel under the
tent. Well, here's the rest of the camel."
