Law Enforcement Organizations Opposing the 1994 Crime Bill


The 1994 Crime Bill, of which the "Assault Weapons Ban" was a part, also promised all sorts of new federal funding for local police agencies across the nation. In this manner, Clinton "bought" the support of many police chiefs who wanted the increased funding promised in it, which had nothing to do with the gun ban. Therefore, it is significant that any police organizations opposed the bill solely for it's gun ban.
