The Brady Campaign is the nation's largest
citizens' lobby to prevent gun violence. We represent
the voice of the overwhelming majority of Americans who are
tired of living with the constant tragedy of gun violence
and are in favor of strong laws and policies that will save
lives. We are the light that exposes politicians who are
putting the American people at risk, empowering the
American people to hold them accountable for decisions and
actions that undermine public safety.
We are driven by the focused vision of a nation where all
Americans are safe at home, at work, at school, and in our
Brady Campaign President Dan Gross today released
the following statement in response to the mass shooting at
the Sikh Temple in Oak Creek, Wisconsin:
Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims, their loved
ones, and the entire community of Oak Creek after
today's terrible shooting at the Oak Creek
Sikh Temple in Wisconsin.
This is yet another powerful reminder of the need for a
real national conversation about what we can do to prevent
gun violence tragedies, and for our elected officials and
presidential candidates to participate in that conversation
by offering real plans to do something about it.
There have now been 61 mass shootings since the tragedy
last year in Tucson and 100 school shootings since the one
at Columbine High School. Tomorrow, another 32
Americans will be murdered by guns.
The American people from across the political spectrum are
calling for solutions. We know that we are better
than this. It is time for our elected officials and
presidential candidates to show us that they know it too.
