Over 30 years ago, I started donating to the Brady. I needed to do something to stop innocent victims from being shot every year. I never thought that my life would be impacted by gun violence, but 17 years ago, my daughter, Laura, was killed in a mass shooting.
Brady Co-President Avery Gardiner said some of the gun industry's advertising is encouraging people to buy multiple guns and carry them everywhere they go... "That is actually the real fear-buying that we should be talking about," she said. "Because that's trying to create a culture of fear and convince people that they can protect themselves by buying another gun. And that is troubling."
