As  Evan McMorris-Santoro reports, a gun control group has launched a new ad featuring footage of the assassination attempt on President Ronald Reagan in 1981.

“Armed Secret Service agents couldn’t protect Ronald Reagan when he was shot by a disturbed man with a gun,” the narrator announces, reminding viewers of Reagan supported the idea of background checks in a New York Times op-ed.

The ad is run by the "UNRA," or The United Network of Rational Americans.
