John Hinckley Jr. says no shows planned, apologizes for shooting Reagan
canceled performances in Brooklyn, Chicago and Connecticut won’t be rescheduled for the “foreseeable future.”“I don’t know anybody else who’s certainly had a life like I’ve had,” Hinckley said on “CBS Mornings.” “I mean, what I tell people now, if you want to get to know John Hinckley, listen to his songs.”The 67-year-old has expressed an ambition to be a singer/songwriter and to perform on tour, but his scheduled performances were canceled due to safety concerns. During his first television interview since his unconditional release earlier this month, Hinckley told CBS News’ chief Washington correspondent Major Garrett that he has “true remorse” for the assassination attempt 41 years ago.He publicly apologized to the families of his shooting victims, and to Jodie Foster “for bringing her into this.”“I know [the victims] probably can’t forgive me now, but I just want them to know that I am sorry for what I did,” Hinckley said.”On March 30, 1981, then-25-year-old Hinckley brought a .22 caliber revolver to the Washington Hilton and carried out the shooting as President Reagan walked to this limousine. He fired six shots, and struck Reagan in the chest. Press secretary James Brady was paralyzed and died from his injuries decades later.
