Wow. Interesting piece on how lax gun laws and bad-apple gun dealers are helping fuel violence in Latin America. http://t.co/j0pbsA6WSG

Brady’s Legal Action Project utilizes the courts to reduce gun violence.  Its work includes:

Representing victims. We seek justice in the courts for victims of gun violence, bringing civil liability cases against irresponsible gun sellers and owners. LAP attorneys have won millions of dollars in damages for gun violence victims, as well as forcing changes in how gun companies do business.

Defending gun laws. We defend gun laws under attack in the courts in order to ensure that hard-fought legislative victories, at the local, state, or federal level, are preserved in the courts. We represent governments or appear as amicus curiae defending gun laws.

Fighting harmful policies. We bring legal actions challenging laws and regulations that worsen the problem of gun violence and hinder gun violence prevention efforts.  For example, we won an important victory for doctors, patients, and the First Amendment when we brought suit and won an injunction against an unprecedented law in Florida that would restrict health care providers, including pediatricians, from warning patients about the risks posed by firearms in the home or offering advice on gun safety.

Educating the public and decision-makers. We engage in public education activities on legal and policy issues related to gun violence, including issuing reports that inform the public, media, and lawmakers of gun issues.
