Brady Campaign Statement on Passage of Major Gun Violence Legislation in Connecticut

Apr 3, 2013

Washington, DC – The following is a statement released today by Brady Campaign President, Dan Gross:  

“The bills passed today will save lives, plain and simple. The leaders in Connecticut are taking action because it is the right thing to do, but also because for them, Newtown didn’t just happen in some far off town.  It was their community.  It was their friends and neighbors. They remember that the debate around common sense gun legislation isn’t about politics, it is about people.  It is something I think all elected leaders need to remember.  We applaud the actions taken by leaders in states like Connecticut, Colorado and New York, and we hope that the Congress is watching.  It is their turn to remember that what they are debating is about preventing the thousands of senseless deaths each year from guns which have fallen into the wrong hands.”
