The following statement was released today by Dan Gross, President of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence:
Washington, DC –“This weekend, as we mourn with the rest of the nation the tragedy that took place one year ago in Newtown, Connecticut, we are shocked and saddened to learn of yet another community impacted by a school shooting.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the students and families impacted by yesterday's terrible tragedy in Centennial, Colorado, and with every one of the 90 families that lose loved ones in our nation every day to gun violence. We will continue to fight for the solutions we know exist to make this the safer nation we all want and deserve, on behalf of every victim and every American who knows that, when it comes to protecting our children, we can do better than this.”
The mission of the Brady organization is to create a safer America for all of us that will lead to the dramatic reduction in gun deaths and injuries that we all seek.
Dan Gross is the President of the Brady Campaign and the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence.
