It was 25 years ago today that John Hinckley tried to kill President Reagan.
He fired the shots that struck President Ronald Reagan and three others outside a Washington D.C. hotel.
The shooting came just 70 days into the Reagan presidency.
It nearly killed him and permanently disabled White House Press Secretary James Brady.
The shooting was said to be an attempt by Hinckley to impress actress Jodie Foster.
At his trial a year later, Hinckley was found innocent by reason of insanity.
He is still in a Washington mental hospital, continuing his efforts to be allowed to take more unsupervised trips outside the hospital.
Brady and his wife became strong opponents of handguns and were a driving force behind the Brady bill that requires a waiting period and background checks for gun buyers.
