Although John Hinckley's family is celebrating the end of his 35-year mental institution stint, Ronald Reagan's daughter is terrified by what "dark agendas" the man who tried to kill her dad still may harbor!

In a scathing blog post, Patti Davis insisted that Reagan's would-be killer should not be freed.

"His doctors have said that his psychosis and depression have been in remission for decades and his narcissistic personality disorder has lessened … quite a feat since narcissistic personality disorder is considered incurable," she wrote on Wednesday.

As Radar previously reported, the 61-year-old attempted murderer was found not guilty by reason of insanity after he shot at the president on March 30, 1981, reportedly in a an effort to impress actress Jodie Foster.

This week, a district judge approved his release, claiming that his mental shortcomings have been cured for 20 years.

"You know I've expressed myself enough in that blog piece and that's really all I'm doing," Davis, distraught over the news, exclusively told Radar on Wednesday afternoon.

In a few short weeks, Hinckley will be sent to live with his mom, 90-year-old Jo Ann Hinckley, in Williamsburg, Virginia.

His new guardian, Davis writes, "shouldn't cramp his style too much, given her age and infirmities."

Davis also pointed out that the wannabe assassin wrote letters to mass murderers Charles Manson and Ted Bundy while confined in St. Elizabeth's Hospital.

Meanwhile, Michael Reagan, the former president's son, took to Twitter to share more sympathetic thoughts on the news.

"My father did more than say the Lord's prayer," he wrote. "He lived it in forgiving John Hinckley Jr. Maybe we should do the same."

While his sister does admit that her dad forgave Hinckley, Davis maintains that the would-be killer should not be allowed to reenter society.

"I too believe in forgiveness. But forgiving someone in your heart doesn't meant that you let them loose in Virginia to pursue whatever dark agendas they may still hold dear," she wrote.

Do you think he should be freed? Let us know in the comments!
