Thank President Biden for Taking Action to Save Lives!
The executive actions just announced by President Biden are the boldest set of solutions for America's gun violence epidemic that we have seen in 30 years.
From our beginning in 1974, Brady has been about common-sense gun laws. We work with lawmakers on both sides of the aisle to close loopholes in the current gun laws and pass new legislation to save lives and prevent gun violence. That includes expanding Brady Background Checks to all gun sales and banning assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. Today, led by Brady President Kris Brown, we continue our namesake’s legacy of bipartisanship by reaching across the aisles, working with gun owners and non-gun owners alike, to make our country safer for all. Because where you live shouldn’t dictate if you live.
