I saw a gun once. I called the police and the fire department and the bomb squad and moved my family to another town.

President Reagan was a mixed bag on gun rights

Citing statistics suggesting 9,200 murders are committed each year in the United States using handguns, Reagan said, “This level of violence must be stopped. Sarah and Jim Brady are working hard to do that, and I say more power to them.” It was a 180 degree turn from Reagan’s 1975 piece in Guns & Ammo magazine, when he said that gun control is pointless because murder cannot be prevented.

Three years later, Congress had passed the Brady Bill and was working on another piece of gun control legislation, a ban on assault weapons. Reagan joined former Presidents Gerald Ford and Jimmy Carter in a letter published in the Boston Globe that called on Congress to pass a ban on assault weapons. Later, in a letter to Rep. Scott Klug, a Wisconsin Republican, Reagan said the limitations proposed by the Assault Weapon Ban “are absolutely necessary” and that it “must be passed.” Klug voted in favor of the ban."


Regarding the underlined... I believe that is what pushed him to do the 180. However, I would like to point out he says "might have never happened", which to me says that he had doubts.

President Reagan wasn't a mixed bag, "FORMER President" Reagan was.

Most people choose to only remember the good parts of certain people. Just as they choose to remember only the bad parts of others. It's human nature.

Yeah president reagan's body double was the one that signed the 1986 awb into law.

May his worthless soul burn in hell. Taking a diahrea dump on the constitution is why i have a deep loathing for that piece of filth. I have the same loathing for john mccain as well for his mccain feingold anti first ammendment laws.

Reagan lowered taxes and took oit the russians but he trashed our freedoms and civil rights which was a much bigger threat and has done lomger lasting damage than carter's taxes or the russians ever posed

Ronald Reagan is not the "gunowners champion" the NRA-ILA paints him up to be. Only Roosevelt and Clinton did more damage to our Second Amendment rights. If Reagan had been a Democrat he would be universally reviled by law abiding gunowners.

1. As CA governor Reagan signed the putrid Mulford Act into law, outlawing the carry of loaded guns in public.

2. In 1984 Reagan banned a South African semi-auto shotgun from import under the "sporting purposes" clause of the GCA 1968. This was the first time a long gun had been banned from import. This precedent set by Reagan was cited by Bush I, Clinton and Obama when they banned guns from import/re-import.

3. In 1986 Reagan banned another semi-auto from import.

4. After he left office; Reagan joined Carter, and Ford in shilling for the "assault weapons" ban. At least two Republican members of the US house changed their minds and voted for the AWB after Reagan supported it: That put it over the top. The vote was 216-214.

"Gunowners champion, my @ss!!!!!
