  • 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.
