Washington, D.C., April 3, 2018 - Today in San Bruno, CA, yet another community was tragically impacted by gun violence as a shooter opened fire at the YouTube headquarters. With multiple patients received at local hospitals and new details still being reported by local authorities, the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence expressed pain and anger over another shooting.
Brady co-presidents Kris Brown and Avery Gardiner stated:
"We are heartbroken to again see this familiar scene of a shooting in America. The sight of helicopters hovering overhead, watching innocent people stream out of buildings in fear, has become far, far too common. And it cannot continue to be that way. Whether it's at work, at school, at home, or frankly anywhere, we all have a right to feel safe and not to fear being shot and killed. This cannot be acceptable. This cannot be normal. This cannot continue.
"Every day that goes by that Congress fails to strengthen our gun laws, more lives are lost. It's time for action before we are forced to bear witness to more and more senseless tragedies."
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.
