President George H. W. Bush spoke before a group of law enforcement officials and introduced an anti-crime bill that would place stricter guidelines on firearm ownership by felons, expand the Federal death penalty to a greater number of crimes, limit death row legal appeals, and permit the introduction of illegally obtained evidence in court if the police officers obtained the evidence in good faith. The president referred to the returning troops before introducing the bill, stating that the best way to welcome the troops home would be to begin action on a domestic program. He also challenged Congress to pass the legislation in 100 days, as the Persian Gulf war’s ground campaign lasted 100 hours. close
