Washington, D.C., May 3, 2023 – At least one person is dead and four others are injured following a mass shooting in midtown Atlanta. Brady, the country’s oldest gun violence prevention organization, released the following statement:
Kris Brown, president of Brady, said:
“Banks, supermarkets, schools, homes, and now medical facilities. People in this country are being gunned down in every public and private location imaginable.
“Unfortunately, no place in America will be safe from gun violence unless we change our country’s deadly “shoot first” gun culture and exact common-sense legislation that keeps firearms out of the hands of people who wish to commit harm.
“Our hearts go out to the victims and families of yet another senseless, preventable mass shooting.”
Brady has one powerful mission — to unite all Americans against gun violence. We work across Congress, the courts, and our communities with over 90 grassroots chapters, bringing together young and old, red and blue, and every shade of color to find common ground in common sense. In the spirit of our namesakes Jim and Sarah Brady, we have fought for over 45 years to take action, not sides, and we will not stop until this epidemic ends. It’s in our hands.
