The president's pistol
Ronald Reagan carried a gun with him at all times and stashed it in his briefcase whilst he was away on official business.
An American author has claimed that the former president never left the White House without a .38 caliber pistol by his side.
He even took it on Air Force One in case a disturbance broke out in mid-air said Brad Meltzer, who writes political thrillers.
Meltzer did not specify when the President started carrying the firearm, though it could well have been after the attempt on his life.
