“Last year my brother Matthew and I were honored to be in the House gallery, together with dozens more gun victims and survivors, as President Obama culminated his State of the Union Address with a rousing call for sensible gun reforms."
This Saturday, Nov. 30th will mark the twentieth anniversary of President Clinton signing the “Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act,” the law that requires gun purchases from licensed gun dealers to go through a background check.
Hundreds of gun violence prevention advocates from around the country took to the halls of Congress today calling on members to expand effective Brady background checks to online and gun show sales.
Today the Obama Administration locked one backdoor used to get around Brady background checks. The Executive Orders issued by the Obama Administration and ATF begin to plug a growing hole in our nation’s Brady background check system and help limit the availability of military-grade weapons in the United States.
