Jim and Sarah Brady accomplished the inconceivable by getting the bipartisan Brady Law passed in 1993. But there’s more work to be done. We know that ending America’s gun violence epidemic means accepting these truths: 1) Gun ownership demands responsibility; 2) Laws in existence must be upheld by those empowered to do that job; and 3) Gun violence is a uniquely American problem. Only when Americans unite and work together will it be solved.
A problem with so many causes at its roots, must be addressed from all angles. Brady’s emphasis on education, litigation, and legislation will ensure that every community is safe, not only from mass shootings, but from the daily urban gun violence that plagues so many American cities.
It’s time we unite people from coast to coast, liberal and conservative, young and old, fed up and fired up, to work with us and end what is taking so many American lives. It’s in our hands.
There is no one solution to end this epidemic of gun violence and no one side has the answer. But our comprehensive plan fights every problem with 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
