Ronald Reagan Supported Ban on Assault Rifles

Another Reason the Gipper Would Not be a Republican Today

From Taegan Goddard’s wonderful political Forum we have this trip back in history.


Ford, Carter, Reagan Push for Gun Ban

o                                                        May 05, 1994|      

         WASHINGTON — Three former presidents endorsed legislation Wednesday to ban the future manufacture, sale and possession of combat-style assault weapons as a closely divided House neared a showdown today on the hotly controversial issue.

Gerald R. Ford, Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan sent a letter to all House members expressing their support for the measure, effectively joining President Clinton in urging approval of the ban.

Remember this the next time Republicans say they want someone like Reagan back.
