I hated to see the guy diminished by his injury. Rest in peace James.

I think Mrs. Brady should be ashamed of herself. She sure capitalized off this. Full of grace she was not, IMO.

Once the poster boy of the gun grabbers, he was sure tossed aside like yesterday's news when they got a more photogenic “victim” to parade around in Gabby Giffords....

RIP to a misguided soul.

Why does everyone think that evil bastards who want to enslave us are "misguided?" By that logic Pol Pot was midguided and every NVA or VC that shot a GI was "misguided."

RIP. I will cut the guy a lot of slack because he suffered severe brain damage and did not understand what he was saying or how he was manipulated. His wife is another story.

I wonder how much of this gun control nonsense was his doing. The shooting did a number on his brain.

So I will say, rest in peace, Mr. Brady and shame on those who used his shooting for their own agenda.

Rest in peace, James Brady.

I hope that your family finds comfort in its memories of you.

I also hope that your widow stops trying to take away our rights and our property - perhaps this breakpoint in her life will allow her to reconsider some of her views and actions.

If I recall, she got a bit too "uppity" and actually tried to run for congress against Pelosi in 2008. From that point on she became persona-non-grata in the eyes of the democrat party. (That and it was no longer popular to criticize the Iraq war once it became Obama's war....)

I expect she will soon be saying that he died because of the shooting.

Hinckley had exchanged letters with serial killer Ted Bundy and sought the address of mass murderer Charles Manson.

“Although Brady returned to the White House only briefly, he was allowed to keep the title of presidential press secretary and his White House salary until Reagan left office in January 1989.”

Ronald Reagan always showed a lot of class and consideration for others.

It was a shame how the gun control phonies used James Brady when he was disabled to promote their cause.

Aww, c’mon. Hinckley was just wanting to get Manson’s recipes for ambrosia.

When he got too old, they used the Gabby Giffords--another disabled person, as their "face".

Respectfully, I’ll give this much to Frank Reynolds, he flipped out, live, on the air, at the behind-the-scenes staff, who fed him the bogus information - he had a sense of journalistic integrity, and rightfully called out those, who dared to go with an unverified report. In the modern era, unverified reports lead every breaking news story, and later on, they mildly issue a correction, as if the reporter had no duty to “get it right”. Thank you.

“Hinckley Jr. should be charged with murder.”

Good idea. There is no statute of limitations on murder and Jim Brady was only wounded by the attack. The charges against Hinckley were for attempted murder. The two issues are whether Brady hd his life shortened by the shooting (factual) and whether Hinckley’s original insanity acquittal on attempted murder charges gives him a double jeopardy defense on the murder charge.

They needed a contemporary Brady and found it in Giffords. The younger generation never knew Brady, and his association with Reagan makes him less sympathetic.

The names of Brady and Giffords will be written into history as the greatest stooges ever utilized to fool free people into destroying the original Bill of Rights by eventual removal or modification of our Second Amendment and allowing all free people of this nation to become defenceless against a tyrannical government.

I consider both of them enemies of the state and have no empathy for either one.
