    Reagan's first press secretary. Wounded in the Hinckley assassination attempt.

    Just announced by his family moments ago.

    Can we charge Hinckley for this one, too?

    Press release, via NBC Nightly News Twitter:


    He lived 33 years longer than he probably should have, and he made the most of his time. RIP.

    RIP. The Brady bill was a landmark at the time for gun control
    and bipartisanship. You wonder if it would have gotten passed in
    today's political climate.

    In tandem with the Brady bill, a law should have been pushed through calling for the mandatory death penalty for anyone making a direct armed attempt on the life of the president. (You too, Squeaky!!)

    It would be strangely ironic to see what would happen to such a bill today.

    Remember reading Mr. Brady wasn't planning on going to the Hilton that day; Speakes was. Change of plan. Change of life. RIP.

    Has there been one since Hinckley's attempt on Reagan? I honestly can't think of one ...

    EDIT: And I'm not talking about stuff like the guy who tried to fly his plane into the White House when the president wasn't there or bombing plots that were discovered and foiled. I'm talking about someone actually taking a shot within reasonable range.
