On the Charleston Mass Shooting Incident: Statement by the Brady Campaign and Center for Prevent Gun Violence

WASHINGTON – Dan Gross, President of the Brady Campaign and Center to Prevent Gun Violence, stated:

“We are shocked, saddened, and horrified by this senseless shooting and apparent hate crime.

“The facts of this tragedy remain under investigation, and there is still a lot that we don’t know. What we know is that every day, 88 lives are lost in shootings across our nation. Most of these tragedies are preventable through sensible solutions that just keep guns out of the wrong hands: solutions like expanding Brady background checks on all gun sales, and shutting down the small number of ‘bad apple’ gun dealers that supply almost all crime guns.”
