He was taken to Martinsville Memorial and later released. The owner is being charged with reckless handling of a fire arm and shooting inside an occupied building.

Brady and his wife Sarah fought for years to get the Brady Handgun Bill passed. It became law in 1993. [from 99-27 1:10:35 - file of hand guns on tables] Justice Department figures indicate the law- -intended to keep guns out of criminals' hands - -has largely been a success. [TAPE S-116/2-117/S-118/S-119 tc 1:34:23 and 1:37:15] Ronald Reagan- -seen here making a Lynchburg campaign stop in 1980- -completed his term of office and was re-elected by a landslide in 1984. When he left office in 1989 - he was enormously popular. Reagan is now mostly regarded for a legacy of trickle-down economics... and some say his staunch opposition to communism led to the collapse of the Soviet Union. [from Reagan-Newsreel 1:37:35-ish]
Few people alive at the time will forget what happened March 30th, 1981. Hinckley's bullets did not alter the legacy of a President, failed to impress a Hollywood star. Ironically, however, they did establish a new level of gun control in America.
