RIP Jim Brady

Sadden to hear that former Reagan Press Secretary and gun control advocate James Brady died today.   He was shot and paralyzed by John Hinckley.   He’s the Brady in the Brady that requires background checks and a five day waiting period before you can buy a handgun.

Whatever you think of Brady’s gun control efforts, no one can deny that he pulled himself through a tragedy and triumphed in ways a low-life scum like Hinckley could never hope to do.  For his determination and spirit James Brady should be an inspiration to us all.
