Why I'm for the Brady Bill
By Ronald Reagan

"Anniversary" is a word we usually associate with happy events that we like to remember: birthdays, weddings, the first job. March 30, however, marks an anniversary I would just as soon forget, but cannot.

It was on that day 10 years ago that a deranged young man standing among reporters and photographers shot a policeman, a Secret Service agent, my press secretary and me on a Washington sidewalk.

I was lucky. The bullet that hit me bounced off a rib and lodged in my lung, an inch from my heart. It was a very close call. Twice they could not find my pulse. But the bullet's missing my heart, the skill of the doctors and nurses at George Washington University Hospital and the steadfast support of my wife, Nancy, saved my life.

Jim Brady, my press secretary, who was standing next to me, wasn't as lucky. A bullet entered the left side of his forehead, near his eye, and passed through the right side of his brain before it exited. The skills of the George Washington University medical team, plus his amazing determination and the grit and spirit of his wife, Sarah, pulled Jim through. His recovery has been remarkable, but he still lives with physical pain every day and must spend much of his time in a wheelchair.

Thomas Delahanty, a Washington police officer, took a bullet in his neck. It ricocheted off his spinal cord. Nerve damage to his left arm forced his retirement in November 1981.

Tim McCarthy, a Secret Service agent, was shot in the chest and suffered a lacerated liver. He recovered and returned to duty.

Still, four lives were changed forever, and all by a Saturday-night special -- a cheaply made .22 caliber pistol -- purchased in a Dallas pawnshop by a young man with a history of mental disturbance.

This nightmare might never have happened if legislation that is before Congress now -- the Brady bill -- had been law back in 1981.

I meant to tell you the other day that I live just off the James River here in Hampton Roads. The history of this nation's early life on is all around me.

Cut the BS. Fox News dominated the cable news rankings during the disaster in Boston. More than 2 1/2 times MSNBC for instance during the O'Rielly show.
Why do you fib?

I'm thinking that if you took 100 8 year olds & gave them the option of a MCDonalds cheeseburger w/ fries or a healthy green salad that 80% would choose the McDonalds.

Eed would running screaming through the streets how the Cheeseburger w/fries was better for them since more chose it.

BTW, Eed, you misspelled KMA.

Try as you might, you will never succeed in stealing my entire identity again.

However, you definitely have a crazy obsessive side.

May I ask if you are institutionalized? Or on some type of medication to help with your symptoms?

Because...and I'm saying this out of genuine concern...you need to seek help.

Just don't do something really crazy and blow up anything.

Statement on U.S. Senate Defeat of Manchin-Toomey-Schumer Amendment
Chris W. Cox
Today, the misguided Manchin-Toomey-Schumer proposal failed in the U.S. Senate. This amendment would have criminalized certain private transfers of firearms between honest citizens, requiring lifelong friends, neighbors and some family members to get federal government permission to exercise a fundamental right or face prosecution. As we have noted previously, expanding background checks, at gun shows or elsewhere, will not reduce violent crime or keep our kids safe in their schools.
The NRA will continue to work with Republicans and Democrats who are committed to protecting our children in schools, prosecuting violent criminals to the fullest extent of the law, and fixing our broken mental health system. We are grateful for the hard work and leadership of those Senators who chose to pursue meaningful solutions to our nation’s most pressing problems. The gun has been called the great equalizer, meaning that a small
person with a gun is equal to a large person, but it is a great
equalizer in another way, too. It insures that the people are the
equal of their government whenever that government forgets that it is servant and not master of the governed. When the British forgot that they got a revolution. And, as a result, we Americans got a
Constitution; a Constitution that, as those who wrote it were
determined, would keep men free. If we give up part of that
Constitution we give up part of our freedom and increase the chance that we will lose it all.”–Ronald Reagan

I agree. Now that you have secured an ID, we know who you are and that other moron that is like a little child harassing you is nothing more than a minor annoyance at this point.

What a load. You should have been crying when Bush let all his Saudi friends leave the country the day after.
Maybe his Saudi friends were innocent.

Has that thought ever entered your mind?

The Saudis are our allies against terror. They were the ones who ousted bin Laden and then became targets as well.

Would you want you and your family to be arrested if your distant cousin committed a crime against humanity?

I, too, believe we have an imposter in the White House even if he was born in Hawaii.

No president EVER has represented only his side once elected. Half of us don't even exist. And if we do, we're demonized.

Let's use the American electorate as an example; when they were offered a choice between free goodies and jobs, over half took the goodies....including you.
