From our beginning in 1974, Brady has been about common-sense gun laws. We work with our lawmakers to close the loopholes in current gun laws and pass new legislation to save lives and prevent gun violence. That includes efforts to expand Brady Background Checks, and restrict assault weapons and high capacity magazines. We reach across the aisles to make our country safer, for everyone in every community.
