James S. Brady American Hero

Jim Brady was an American hero who dedicated his life to creating a safer nation for us all. Because of Jim’s hard work and the policy that bears his name—the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act—an estimated 2 million gun sales to criminals, domestic abusers and other dangerous people have been blocked. As a result, countless lives have been saved.

He inspired millions with his strength, courage, perseverance, and legendary sense of humor. To celebrate Jim’s life and legacy we are collecting stories and comments to share with his family, friends, and loved ones.

Please join us in remembering Jim and the incredible life he lived.
