First off, as ludicrous as this sounds, it is not a joke. Former White House Press secretary James Brady (the namesake of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence) has just been ruled a homicide.
NBC News is reporting the following,
The death of James Brady — President Ronald Reagan’s press secretary who was wounded in the attempt on Reagan’s life in March 1981 — was a homicide, the District of Columbia medical examiner ruled Friday.
The medical examiner said Brady died as a result of the grevious injuries he suffered 33 years ago, which means that gunman John Hinckley Jr. could be charged with Brady’s murder in federal court.
