    Brady was 74. had he not been shot he may have lived to be ...who knows 80? 90? possibly 100?.
    However long he lived, he wouldn't have been trapped in a chair and dependent on others for 33 years.

    His campaign for the passage of the Brady bill was assisted by his wife but it wasn't her idea ... it was his.
    Ronald Reagan who was shot and almost killed in the same hail of bullets, voiced his support for the Brady Bill, saying the 1981 assassination attempt might have never happened if the Brady Bill had been law. This reversed his 1975 stance on handgun control.
    Like so many human beings, a personal assault and tragedy reversed his views on gun control.
    Sarah supported her husbands bill but to imply that she was the only proponent of it is a fallacious construct.

    Oh she pushed him as a symbol for it. but she was the real force behind it.

    and the brady bill would have done nothing to stop Hinkley from getting the gun

    So being found not guilty by reason of insanity is not a criminal justice determination? I kinda think a judge decided that so why it would not be a criminal justice determination?

    Being insane is a medical determination, being found not guilty sounds pretty much like a criminal justice determination.
    Former military man (and now babysitter of Donald Trump) John Kelly, is a big loud lying empty barrel!

    It doesn't matter if it took thirty three minutes or thirty three years for Brady to die from his gunshot wounds ... there is no statute of limitations on murder... ever.
    Hinckley just graduated from "attempted assassin" to murderer.
    I wonder if Jodie Foster is impressed.
    While murder has no statute of limitation from a legal perspective the injured needs to exipre within 365 days from initial injury in order to be prosecuted.

    the medical examiners determination of "homicide" is a medical determination, not a criminal justice determination.... nothing else has happpened, there are no additional charges, no crimina.l justice machinations.. nothing.

    the ME simply ruled on the cause of death , nothing more.

    Correct from a legal standpoint while the ME considers this a homicide there is no legal basis to prosecute.

    On that point you disagree with Ronald Reagan and millions of Americans who supported the bill for that very reason.
