For more than 30 years, Brady’s legal team has been the nation’s only law group fighting on behalf of victims and communities to prevent gun deaths and injuries.
We've argued and won before state supreme courts, trial courts, and federal appeals courts, arguing or filing legal briefs in 44 states, and helping win important victories in the United States Supreme Court. Brady's Legal Alliance works with hundreds of lawyers and firms that contribute their passion and time — pro bono — to reform the corporate gun lobby and secure justice for the victims and survivors of gun violence.
Government agencies play a crucial role in enforcing current gun laws and ensuring the safety of the American public. When the government does not fulfill those responsibilities, Brady fights to hold the government accountable and let Americans know what their government is or isn’t doing to protect them from gun violence. Through Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests and related impact litigation, Brady exposes government actions and inactions that endanger Americans lives.
