    John Glenn talks about the importance of proposed federal legislation. Congress ultimately passed the Omnibus Crime Control and Safe Streets Act of 1968 and the Gun Control Act of 1968 to ban the mail-order sale of handguns, rifles, and shotguns as well as prohibit certain felons, drug users, and those found mentally incompetent from buying guns.
    The shooting occurred exactly three weeks after the assassination of Senator Robert F. Kennedy
