The proposed legislation would take comprehensive action to prevent gun violence.
Washington, D.C., February 23, 2023 – Today, Colorado Senate President Steve Fenberg announced a package of new gun violence prevention bills, that would enact new age restrictions on firearms, mandatory waiting periods, and a repeal of harmful gun industry immunity laws. Brady, the national gun violence prevention organization, has endorsed these pieces of legislation.
Brady President Kris Brown stated:
"As historic rates of gun violence continue across the country this year, these bills show how states like Colorado are taking proactive steps to meaningfully address this public health epidemic."
“These policies are designed to stop gun violence before it happens by instituting common-sense reforms to better protect Coloradans. In particular, the repeal of special gun industry immunity laws in Colorado will ensure that the gun industry is held accountable when they engage in dangerous and negligent business practices that impact public safety.”
“Brady is proud to endorse these important bills and applauds Senate President Fenberg and bill sponsors for working proactively to prevent future tragedies from occurring by enacting sensible and lifesaving policies such as these.”

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.
