James Brady bekam die erste Kugel in den Kopf und war seit dem schwerst behindert.

Sogar der Querschläger der 6. Kugel hat Reagan fast getötet, siehe unten.

Von wegen .22 könnte nichts ausrichten - das ist dummes Geschwalle. Es kommt immer auf die Menge Pulver und die kinetische Energie an. Wir reden hier nicht über BB Guns.


At 2:27 p.m.,[13]:82 Reagan exited the hotel through "President's Walk"[22] and its T Street NW exit toward his waiting limousine as Hinckley waited within the crowd of admirers. The Secret Service had extensively screened those attending the president's speech. In a "colossal mistake", the agency allowed an unscreened group to stand within 15 ft (4.6 m) of him, behind a rope line.[13]:80–81,225 Unexpectedly, Reagan passed right in front of Hinckley. Believing he would never get a better chance,[13]:81 Hinckley fired a Röhm RG-14 .22LR blue steel revolver[24] six times in 1.7 seconds;[13]:82[25] he missed the president with all but one shot.[26][23] The first bullet hit White House Press Secretary James Brady in the head and the second hit District of Columbia police officer Thomas Delahanty in the back of his neck as he turned to protect Reagan.[13]:82[27][28][29][30] Hinckley now had a clear shot at the president,[13]:81 but the third bullet overshot him and hit the window of a building across the street. As Special Agent In Charge Jerry Parr quickly pushed Reagan into the limousine, the fourth bullet hit Secret Service agent Tim McCarthy in the abdomen[27][28] as he spread his body over Reagan to make himself a target.[13]:81[17] The fifth bullet hit the bullet-resistant glass of the window on the open side door of the limousine. The sixth and final bullet ricocheted off the armored side of the limousine and hit the president in the left underarm, grazing a rib and lodging in his lung, causing it to partially collapse, and stopping less than an inch (25 mm) from his heart.[31][17][20] Parr's prompt reaction had saved Reagan from being hit in the head.[13]:224
