President Bill Clinton (right) signs into the law the Brady Bill as former White House Press Secretary James S. Brady (left), the bill's namesake, looks on at the White House. Brady was seriously injured when he was shot by John Hinkley during the assassination attempt on President Ronald Reagan in March 1981. Clinton used more than ten pens, which he will give to those people who worked for the bill, to sign the controversial bill which sets a five day waiting period for handgun sales.
