For more than 40 years, the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence has been the leading national voice in the prevention of gun violence with an unrivaled history of success. The Brady Bill, which was signed into law in 1993, remains the single most effective gun violence prevention policy in history, with Brady background checks blocking more than 3 million sales of guns to prohibited purchasers such as domestic abusers, convicted violent criminals, and people with dangerous mental illnesses. In the words of President Bill Clinton, "countless people are alive today" because of the work of Jim and Sarah Brady and the Brady Center.

Brady has established the bold vision to cut U.S. gun deaths in half by 2025 through a strategy that focuses on the common ground shared by the overwhelming majority of Americans: keeping guns out of the hands of the dangerous people we all agree should not have them. Brady is committed to doing this through three focused, sustained, impact-driven campaigns:

Slow the flow of crime guns into impacted communities by reforming or shutting down the small number of gun dealers who break the law, sell guns to dangerous people just to make a profit, and supply the criminal market with guns that are devastating communities across the country.

Public Health and Safety Campaigns that keep guns out of the hands of children and beat back the gun lobby myth that a gun in the home makes you safer through the ASK (Asking Saves Kids) campaign, Suicide-Proof Your Home, and and Brady's new umbrella social norm change campaign.

Strengthen and protect the background check system by expanding effective, lifesaving Brady background checks to all gun sales, including private sales, where 20% of gun sales in our nation go unchecked every single day. This policy solution is supported by 93 percent of the American people.
