    and still to this very day the NRA doesn't want gun laws touched even though their demi-God Ronald Reagan was almost taken out by one. Just shows you where their hearst really lie.

    Even Cheney knows that the 30 round magazine should be outlawed. But as long as cartoon character from the NRA, PePe LaPierre is in charge, sanity will never be achieved. Sarah Palin for president of the NRA! She's locked and loaded, has her fellow Alsakans in her cross hairs, and can reload if she needs more than one bullet.

    While I view the shooting of Reagan as a true tragedy, I think CNN's time would be better spent investigating where his brain went during his two-term tenure. In the end, his wife did all the talking, and idiots like Oliver North were in charge of foreign policy....while amidst all of this there is no documentation of anyone doing any THINKING at the end of this administration.

    But of course it is now a well-establiished fact that Americans, when they vote for a [R] president, actually prefer one with no perceptable brain activty.

    John Hinckley Jr. Just another Progressive / Liberal / Left wing nutcase and if CNN can't handle it and continue to be a biased site then they're part of the problem.

    His buddy heston died with that rifle in his cold dead hands. Enough of reagan. If he came from the dead he wouldn't recognize or care much about what all these clowns are saying about him. He wouldn't recognize himself. Why isn't his family coming to his defense when they mock him in their speeches? Starting with the she devil from AK it's all lies!
