Members of the Senate debated an amendment to S. 1241, the Violent Crime Control Act of 1991, that would create a five-day waiting period for the purchase of a handgun. In May, the House passed the Brady bill, a piece of anti-crime legislation that would create a seven-day waiting period for the purchase of a handgun. The amendment, which reduced the waiting period from seven to five days as a compromise measure with the opponents of the legislation, was passed on a vote of 67-32. close
