In getting the bipartisan Brady Law passed in 1993, Jim and Sarah Brady accomplished the inconceivable. But there’s more work to be done — and only when we work together will we solve this problem. In order to do that work, we must accept these three truths about America’s gun violence epidemic: 1) Gun ownership demands responsibility; 2) Those empowered to do so must uphold existing gun laws; and 3) Gun violence is a uniquely American problem that impacts all races and ethnicities in the country, but nonetheless exacts a particular toll on Black and Brown communities.
A problem with so many root causes, requires us to address it from all angles. Brady therefore emphasizes education, litigation, and legislation to ensure that every community is safe, not only from mass shootings, but also from the daily toll of gun homicide, domestic violence, suicide, unintentional shootings, and police violence that plagues so many communities.
It’s time we unite people of all races and ethnicities from coast to coast, progressive and conservative, young and old, fed up and fired up, to work with us and end what is taking so many lives. It's in our hands.
There is no one solution to end this epidemic of gun violence. So our comprehensive approach addresses every aspect with more than 45 years of research and real-world experience. Let’s put the Brady plan into action now and get the job done right.See the Full Plan
Combating Crime Guns
Stemming the flow of guns into the urban, often Black and Brown, communities most impacted by gun homicide.
End Family Fire
Education and dialogue around the role of safe firearm storage to prevent "family fire" — or shootings involving an improperly stored gun, often found in the home.
Brady’s youth-led initiative educates and mobilizes young people in the intersectional fight against gun violence.
Brady's Legal Alliance
A national program to challenge the gun lobby in court, contributing more than $1.5 million in pro bono services annually.
