Michael Reagan: Dad's Support of AWB May Have Been From Alzheimer's


The son of the late President Ronald Reagan says Reagan’s support of an assault weapons ban in the 1990s may have been the result of his Alzheimer’s disease.

 

Michael Reagan spoke with reporters in Springfield while in town for the Sangamon County GOP’s Lincoln Day dinner.

 

He told the State Journal-Register that his father did not support gun control laws during his presidency, even after being shot in an assassination attempt.

 

In the ‘90s, Reagan not only joined other former presidents in supporting the assault weapons ban, he also came out in support of the “Brady bill,” named for Reagan’s former press secretary who was critically wounded in the attempt on Reagan’s life.
