Brady Statement on Florida High School Shooting
The Brady Campaign and Center to Prevent Gun Violence is horrified by the breaking news about a shooting at a Florida high school. There have been an unconscionably high number of shootings so far in 2018, and we're only at Valentine's Day. How many more will America endure before school is out for the summer?
In the vast majority of school shootings, shooters get their guns from their parents or close relatives. As this story develops, we call upon law enforcement to find out how the shooter got his gun.
The mission of the Brady organization and its Million Mom March is to create a safer America by cutting gun deaths in half by 2025. For more insight on gun violence prevention, follow us on Facebook and Twitter @BradyBuzz.
About Us: The Brady Campaign and Center, united with the Million Mom March, is a national network of over 90 grassroots chapter affiliates mobilized to prevent gun violence at the community level. The network has played a vital role in expanding Brady background checks in the six states that have passed legislation since the shooting in Newtown, Connecticut and produced the largest national protest of gun violence in U.S. history - The Million Mom March, Mother's Day 2000.
