Washington, D.C., September 19. 2019— Colt has recently announced that they will stop selling AR-15 style rifles to the civilian market. Brady responded calling it a small step toward keeping weapons of war out of places of peace.
Brady President Kris Brown stated,
“Brady has been fighting to keep these weapons of war off our streets since we helped pass the original assault weapons ban in 1994. Since the ban expired in 2004, every one of these small victories should be seen as a step toward saving lives. Walmart, Dick’s, Kroeger, and now a leading manufacturer of assault weapons—we need to keep this momentum going and demand Congress immediately ban assault weapons and high capacity magazines. America can’t wait another day!”
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.
