Gun Used To Shoot Wallace Up for Auction

Gun Used To Shoot Wallace Up for Auction

governor_wallace_murder_weapon_revolver_1The Charter Undercover revolver that Arthur Bremer used to shoot Alabama governor and presidential candidate George C. Wallace will be auctioned this weekend at Rock Island Auction in Rock Island, Ill.

Wallace survived the May 15, 1972 attack and served many more years as Alabama governor, but was paralyzed and confined to a wheelchair until his death in 1998. Bremer was imprisoned until 2007.


The Colt Cobra that was used by Jack Ruby to shoot Lee Harvey Oswald was auctioned for $220,000 back in 1991, so it will be interesting to see what the Undercover brings. The Wallace connection is not, I suspect, as potent as the Kennedy link, but you never know what will happen when a gun is connected to a famous personality.
