Doesn’t Liz Cheney Know That Reagan Supported the Brady Bill?

Liz Cheney wrote another rant, which has been ably critiqued by Jonathan Chait, Aaron Carroll, and Paul Krugman. Much of their takedowns relate to Cheney’s batshit insane comments about ObamaCare but let’s also look at this:
The president has launched a war on Americans' Second Amendment rights.
Really? Because he wants to restore what Sarah Brady pushed for – effective background checks? That makes Barack Obama “the most radical man ever to occupy the Oval Office”? Did Ms. Cheney forget about how even Ronald Reagan supported the Brady Bill? Who knew the patron saint of conservatives was such a radical!

Her father taught her that Ronald Reagan doesn't matter.
