  • While You Were Out

    4,500 Americans died from gun violence while Congress was on summer vacation. Now that they're finally back at work, Congress must make gun violence prevention a priority.

  • On Monday, May 16, 2016, more than 2,200 Brady supporters flooded Senator Chuck Schumer’s office with calls asking him to keep his promise to introduce a universal background check bill. Within hours Sen.

Here’s a timeline of how Brady achieved this incredible progress.

  • It’s really not possible to overstate the importance of this victory in Washington State. Voters in the Evergreen State overwhelmingly passed Initiative 594 to expand background checks to all gun sales, including online and at gun shows. With a decisive 60 percent of voters supporting I-594, it turns out that it’s a lot harder for the corporate gun lobby to bully voters than it is to bully politicians.
