Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act of 1993: Signed Into Law November 30, 1993

Written by Sam Jacobs Subject: American History

On this episode of The Resistance Library Podcast, Sam and Dave discuss the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act, a gun control law passed in 1993. In 1981, John Hinckley, Jr.'s attempt to assassinate President Ronald Reagan first injured Reagan's press secretary, James Brady. Hinckley's first shot entered above Brady's left eye and left the nation shaken by "The Bear's" new role as a wheelchair-bound gun control advocate. Within 16 minutes of the incident, Hinckley's gun – a .22-caliber Röhm RG-14 revolver – was traced to a Dallas pawn shop. Hinckley had no criminal or mental records at the time, but he did use an old Texas driver's license and fake address.
