Buffalo. Uvalde. Highland Park. America has been wracked by mass shooting after mass shooting — and there are so many more tragedies that don't make the news. We don't have to live this way.
With 100 people killed with guns each day, we cannot wait another minute to demand action to keep us safe. Together, we can move the needle to save lives and create a safer America. Here's how you can take action now.
Inspired by our namesake Jim Brady, Brady is a survivor-led organization fighting to end America’s gun violence epidemic. In March 1981, Jim was just two months into his dream role as White House Press Secretary when he was shot in the head as a gunman tried to assassinate President Reagan. He spent the rest of his life recovering — and fighting to strengthen our nation’s gun laws. He and and his wife, Sarah, spent years taking on the NRA and lobbying Congress to pass the bipartisan Brady Bill, which established our nation's background check system on gun sales.
Jim and Sarah’s legacy — which we at Brady continue today — is that they refused to believe that preventing gun violence is a “partisan” issue. They understood that passing sensible gun laws isn't about politics; it’s about saving lives. It’s that same legacy that we carry on at Brady today, because we know that our collective power can change the country. It’s this determination that just helped us push Congress to pass the first gun violence prevention legislation measures in 30 years, and it’s what will keep our momentum driving forward — if you're with us.
