Reagan's biggest secret: He packed heat in his briefcase

It was an eerie keepsake for sure. But not nearly as eerie as the next detail they told me. We were talking about Reagan and that day he was shot. Then one of the agents offered this secret: When Reagan was President, he carried his own gun.

I couldn’t believe it.

President Bush carried with him the sheild of New York Port Authority Police Officer, George Howard who died while trying to save others in the World Trade Center.
“It’s true,” they said. A .38. Reagan used to hide it in his briefcase and take it on Air Force One.
