A woman who once tried to assassinate President Gerald Ford says she regrets the murder attempt and joins Americans in mourning his recent death. Sara Jane Moore was only 40 feet (12 meters) away from Ford outside the St. Francis Hotel in San Francisco when she fired a single shot at him on Sept. 22, 1975. As she raised her .38 caliber revolver, Oliver Sipple, a disabled former US Marine who was standing next to her, pushed up her arm as the gun discharged. The bullet flew over Ford's head by several feet, ricocheted off the side of the hotel and slightly wounded a cab driver in the crowd.
