BRADY CAMPAIGN STATEMENT ON TRUMP INAUGURATION
WASHINGTON - Dan Gross, president of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, issued the following statement before the inauguration of Donald Trump.
"Every day, 93 Americans will die from gun violence. No tweet will stop that. Only smart policy can. Tomorrow Donald Trump will be handed a great responsibility to protect the American people and honor their will as he leads this nation. He would do well to remember that 93 percent of voters - including most of the people who voted for him -- support policies like expanded Brady background checks that keep guns out of dangerous hands. We hope and expect that the incoming president will take gun violence, and its solutions, seriously. The country will join us in holding him accountable if he doesn't."
Brady Campaign activists will join thousands of Americans at Saturday's Women's March on Washington to demand gun safety reforms that keep guns out of the hands of felons, domestic abusers, and other dangerous people.
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.
