DL for just Colin’s bit

In England 1464, the two sides of the same family have been at war for nine years to take the thrown of the kingdom. As The House of York’s™ Edward IV (Max Irons) is crowned the King of England with the help of the master manipulator Lord Warwick (James Frain), a damaged and highly religious Margaret Beaufort (Amanda Hale) from The House of Lancaster would stop at nothing to see her young son Henry Tudor take the throne. With the help of her mother and a self-proclaimed sorceress Jacquetta (Janet McTeer), a captivating and beautiful commoner Elizabeth Woodville (Rebecca Ferguson) falls in love with Edward IV and secretly marries him. As Warwick’€™s plan for control over the King of England crumbles right before his eyes, he will stop at nothing to maintain his grip on the throne. [x]

On This Day in History March 30, 1981: United States President Ronald Reagan was shot and seriously injured outside the Washington Hilton Hotel after giving a speech to the Building and Construction Trades Department of the A.F.L.-C.I.O. The would be assassin was John W. Hinckley Jr who fired six shots before being subdued by the Secret Service. Also wounded were White House news secretary James Brady who suffered severe head injuries, Tim McCarthy of the Secret Service and Washington D.C. police officer Thomas Delahanty.

Who was John W. Hinkley Jr. and why did he shoot President Reagan? According to the post 1981: President Reagan is shot from the BBC On This Day 1950-2005 website:

John Hinckley, 25, the son of an affluent oil industry executive, was charged with trying to assassinate the president fuelled by an obsession with actress Jodie Foster and a desire to impress her.

President Reagan would recover fully. Brady would survive his injuries but would be paralyzed on his left side and confined to a wheelchair for the rest of his life. 

Brady would become an ardent supporter of gun control regulation. On November 30, 1993, the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act was signed into law by President Bill Clinton. Brady would pass away on August 4, 2014. Hinckley was found not guilty by reason of insanity in 1982 and has been confined to a mental hospital since.
