The 20th anniversary of a law that changed the rules for people who buy guns is about a week away.

On Thursday, city and law enforcement leaders celebrated the signing of the Brady Law that happened back on November 30, 1993.

It requires a person to undergo a background check before they can buy a gun from a federally-licensed firearms dealer.

At Thursday's event, Mayor Rahm Emanuel said he wants to use this anniversary as energy to push forward with other legislation necessary to protect our communities.
