    No, it wasn't. According to Wikipedia:
    It's a common practice for legislators to insert an unpopular amendment into a bill that has overwhelming support so that either the amendment will be accepted as a necessary evil when it is signed into law or the amendment will kill the bill completely (A.K.A. poison pill.) The FOPA had a number of provisions that were of great benefit to firearms owners ("Safe Passage" provision, prohibition of a government maintained firearms registry, and clarification of who is considered a prohibited person for firearm ownership) so President Reagan signed the bill to enact into law the good parts of the bill along with the bad.

    Regan was a mixed bag on 2A issues. He was mostly just misguided, and Nancy probably made most of the real decisions for him, if he asked for her input or not. Was never a Nancy fan. I thought she was a fake, self important ***** most of the time.

    To be POTUS, at least in modern times, an enormous ego is just one of the personality traits that seems to be required.
    I can't think of any POTUS in the last 100 years that wasn't an egomaniac.
    With the possible exception of Gerald Ford, who I'm not certain ever really understood what he the job involved.
