Washington, D.C., May 18, 2018 - This morning, yet another community was terrorized by a school shooting, with local reports stating that multiple students at Santa Fe High School in Santa Fe, TX were killed. The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence expressed sorrow and anger over the shooting and called for Congress to finally take action on legislation to combat gun violence.
Brady Campaign co-presidents Kris Brown and Avery Gardiner stated:
“We are heartbroken today. Once again, children are shot in their school. Once again, another mass shooting has grabbed the headlines, and meanwhile, so many other shootings go by without any attention. We’ve asked this time and time again - what will it take? What will it take for Congress to step up and do their jobs to protect innocent children from gun violence? Our hearts go out to the victims and their loved ones today, and we fervently hope that perhaps this is the day when our elected officials stand and take action.”
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.
