James Brady, the former White House press secretary who was
badly wounded in the assassination attempt against President
Ronald Reagan and later became an advocate for gun control, has
died. He was 73.

His family announced Brady's death in a statement released
Monday afternoon, saying he "passed away after a series of
health issues."

"Jim touched the lives of so many and has been a wonderful
husband, father, friend and role model," his family said. "We
are enormously proud of Jim's remarkable accomplishments --
before he was shot on the fateful day in 1981 while serving at
the side of President Ronald Reagan and in the days, months and
years that followed.

"Jim Brady's zest for life was apparent to all who knew him, and
despite his injuries and the pain he endured every day, he used
his humor, wit and charm to bring smiles to others and make the
world a better place. Over the years, Jim inspired so many
people as he turned adversity into accomplishment."

Brady was left permanently disabled after being shot in the head
on March 30, 1981, by John Hinckley, Jr., outside the Washington
Hilton Hotel.

He afterward undertook a personal crusade for gun control, and
lobbied for stricter handgun and assault-weapon laws. A federal
law requiring a background check on handgun buyers bears Brady's
name, and The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence is named in
his honor.

"Since 1993, the law that bears Jim's name has kept guns out of
the hands of dangerous individuals. An untold number of people
are alive today who otherwise wouldn't be, thanks to Jim,"
President Obama said in a statement on Monday.

You lying kenyan son-of-a-bitch. The only thing that law did
was penalize law-abiding citizens.

So the "untold number" is a very small number.
