In a decision that outraged many gun rights supporters, The Brits that owned Smith & Wesson signed an unprecedented agreement with the Clinton administration to, among other things, include safety locks with all of its handguns to make them more childproof; in return, the agreement called for federal, state and city lawsuits against the gun maker to be dropped.

They later sold it for pennies on the dollar, and S&W is now owned by Americans.
