  • AB 1014 advances the Brady Campaign’s core mission of reducing firearm injury and death by keeping firearms out of dangerous hands. The law establishes a process for law enforcement or immediate family members to obtain a Gun Violence Restraining Order from a court in order to temporarily limit an individual’s access to firearms when there are warning signs or indications that the person is at risk for violence. The court order would prohibit the purchase or possession of firearms while the order is in effect.

  • Jim Brady turned tragedy into action when he dedicated his life to preventing the kind of senseless gun violence he survived. Jim and Sarah, his wife, were tenacious and fearless in their fight to prevent dangerous people from having easy access to guns. Thanks to Jim and Sarah's hard work, an estimated 2 million gun sales to criminals, domestic abusers and other dangerous people have been blocked. As a result, countless lives have been saved.

  • In 2009, former police officer Bruce Abramski purchased a Glock handgun for his uncle using a law enforcement discount at a Virginia gun dealer. When authorities learned of the transaction, they charged Abramski with straw purchasing, on the grounds that he had lied on the federal firearm purchase form on a question asking whether he was the actual buyer of the gun.
