Surrounded by law enforcement officials and James Brady, President Clinton announced two new executive orders that will increase the controls on purchasing and using firearms. One requires all federal law enforcement handguns to have child safety locks and the other requires foreign visitors to prove residence in the same state for ninety days before purchasing a firearm.
