Quick Overview On The Goals and Objectives Of the Brady Bill

The gun control solutions in effect at the time would not have, according to Sarah Brady, prevented John Hinckley Jr from obtaining the weapon which he fired in a failed attempt to assassinate Ronald Reagan. Inadequate gun control at the time was said to be responsible for the injuries sustained in Hinckley’s attack by Reagan’s press secretary Jim Brady, Secret Service agent Tim McCarthy, and District of Columbia police officer Thomas Delehanty. The gun control solutions provided in the Brady Bill would have supposedly prevented Hinckley from attaining the gun because he had violated a federal law.
