More than three years after a white supremacist shot and murdered nine African Americans in a church in Charleston, South Carolina, the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence filed an amicus brief with the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals supporting a lawsuit brought by the victims’ families. The suit, which was brought against the federal government, had alleged that the government should be liable for the numerous failures during the background check process that allowed the shooter to obtain his guns. The case was dismissed earlier this year and is currently on appeal.
