Brady's Legislative Blueprint for a Safer America

This is a pivotal moment in our fight to end the public health epidemic of gun violence in America.

We call on members of the 118th Congress to build upon past achievements, and work with us toward creating a better, safer, and more just America.

American gun violence is a complex and multifaceted issue that will persist unless our elected leaders take action and embrace targeted solutions that address the root causes of gun violence and its various forms. Through legislative action and engaging with the American people, there is an opportunity to change the trajectory of gun violence in the United States and lay the foundations for lasting positive change.

In order to reduce American gun violence and set the stage for generations of progress, Brady has identified three broad areas of focus:

1. Expanding and Defending Democratic Norms
2. Expand the Brady Background Check System
3. Address Gun Violence In All Of Its Forms

    Brady's Legislative Blueprint For A Safer America


    1. Expanding and Defending Democratic Norms

    We cannot adequately address gun violence until we fix unjust democratic systems and protect principles of democracy. Reforms that will prevent stonewalling and special interest influence, as well as expanding representative democracy and protecting the disenfranchised, are critical to building a safer America.

    2. Expand the Brady Background Check System

    The Brady Background Check System has prevented over 4.4 million unlawful gun transactions since it went into effect, saving countless lives. Gaps in the law have arisen over the years as technology has progressed and businesses and individuals have exploited loopholes for profit. Expanding and strengthening this system is crucial to ensuring foundational support for all other gun laws.

    3. Address gun violence in all of its forms

    The strategies and policies necessary to prevent gun violence require an approach tailored to each form and its root cause. Policymakers must account for the ways in which gun violence impacts every community differently.
