Holding elected officials accountable, making this the safer nation we all want

  • 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. 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.

50 mayors from across the country have joined the Brady Campaign in signing a letter to Attorney General Loretta Lynch, calling for action against ‘bad apple’ gun dealers.

"Our thoughts are with the community and the families of those who have been injured, including four police officers, as America once again faces the reality of too many guns in the hands of people intent on doing harm. In light of the circumstances, the gunman's motivation will be the first question people will ask. Equally important, however, is how the shooter got the gun or guns used and what we can do in the future to keep guns out of the hands of people we all agree should not have them."
