Reagan says he's fine, sees no security shifts

President Reagan said the attempt on his life "still seems unreal" but he feels fine and does not plan any security changes in his presidency. Mr. Reagan commented in an interview with United Press International and the Associated Press -- his first face-to-face session with reporters since he was wounded March 30. Reporters were asked to limit their questions to Reagan's health and the shooting.

The President, who has been gradually increasing his workload, indicated he expects to stay in family quarters awhile longer. He also said he remains opposed to gun control. Of his accused assailant, John W. Hinckley Jr., Reagan said: "I hope, indeed I pray, he can find an answer to his problem."
