  • With victories in the Supreme Court and Court of Appeals of Kansas, the Brady Center helped change the law in Kansas to hold bad apple gun dealers accountable for contributing to gun violence, won compensation for a mother who lost her son, and sent a powerful message to gun dealers who choose to profit off of criminals.

  • It’s really not possible to overstate the importance of this victory in Washington State.

These specific funding proposals were included in the President's Executive Actions on Gun Violence in early January and require congressional approval.
