On this day in 1981, President Ronald Reagan and three others were shot by an unstable man with a gun, showing just how ridiculous the @NRA's claim that the only thing that stops a "bad guy with a gun" is a "good gun with a gun."

That’s why President Reagan supported a background check on every gun sale. One of the most conservative minds of our time agreed gun safety laws are commonsense.

President Reagan also opposed making assault weapons widely available to American citizens.
