Brady Center President's Statement on School Shooting in Sparks, Nevada

Washington, DC – Today shots were fired at Sparks Middle School in Sparks, Nevada.  While we do not know the full details of the incident, media reports indicate a student brought a gun to school taken from his parents.

The following statement was released today by Dan Gross, President of the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence:

“Our thoughts and prayers are with the community of Sparks, Nevada and Sparks Middle School.  The heartbreaking sight of children fleeing from gunfire in our schools is becoming an all too familiar sight. Tragically, 90 Americans are killed with bullets every day, including eight children and teens.

While we don't know the specific circumstances of this tragedy yet, we do know that solutions exist that can prevent most gun violence and we vow to continue to fight for those solutions until this is becomes the safer nation we all want and deserve.”
