Washington D.C., October 2, 2017 — Brady Campaign and Center Co-presidents Kris Brown and Avery Gardiner issued the following joint statement on the shooting at a country music festival last night in Las Vegas.
"Last night in Las Vegas, America suffered the deadliest mass shooting in our nation’s history. Our hearts go out to the victims and their families, and to all Americans who have had enough of gun violence in this country. Americans need to be safe in public places, whether at country music concerts, dance clubs, schools, churches, or baseball fields.
We are done debating. We need comprehensive gun safety laws in order to protect our citizens from these random acts of violence that threaten our everyday lives. Congress needs to act now to ensure the safety of all Americans."
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.
