Series I.C.16. -- Contents List
Extent: .5 linear ft.
Contents: Legislation, correspondence, reports, newspaper articles.
Arrangement: Alphabetically by topic.
This subseries contains files and legislation relating to the Omnibus Anti-Drug Bill of
1986, "cop killer" bullets, and gun control, including extensive documentation on the Federal
Firearms Reform Act of 1986. In additional to topical content, this subseries illustrates well the
work of a legislative assistant in compiling and disseminating issue information for Congressman
Carper, providing pros and cons to amendments and bills. Correspondence from Carper to
Attorney General William Barr and President George Bush conveys disbelief over the outcome of
the 1992 Rodney King beating trial in Los Angeles and its aftermath of civil unrest (F701).
