CORRECTS SPELLING OF HINCKLEY - In this photo taken March 18, 2015, the home of John Hinckley's mother in the Kingsmill resort in Williamsburg, Va. The last man to shoot an American president now spends most of the year in a house overlooking the 13th hole of a golf course in a gated community. He takes long walks along tree-lined paths, plays guitar and paints, grabs fast food at Wendy’s. He drives around town in a silver Toyota Avalon, a car that wouldn’t attract a second glance. Often, as if to avoid detection, he puts on a hat or visor before going out. These days, John Hinckley Jr. lives much of the year like any average Joe: shopping, eating out, watching movies at Regal Cinemas. (AP Photo/ Steve Helber)
