Brady President Kris Brown shared,
“Recognizing their tireless work to prevent gun violence as members of the House Judiciary Committee, Brady is proud to endorse these eight Representatives in their campaigns for re-election. These members ensure that the safety of all Americans is placed above partisanship, bringing forward common-sense gun safety policies that will save laws. From expanding and strengthening the Brady Background Check System and keeping guns out of the hands of people who commit violent hate crimes, to legislation to end the sale of high-capacity magazines, the House Judiciary Committee has advanced bills that will make our nation safer. Their work is essential. We need each of these eight representatives continuing that effort in the 117th Congress.”
Each of these members of Congress continues to make invaluable contributions to save American lives from gun violence. Brady is proud to endorse these strong and long-standing gun violence prevention leaders.
Brady has one powerful mission — to unite all Americans against gun violence. We work across Congress, the courts, and our communities with over 90 grassroots chapters, bringing together young and old, red and blue, and every shade of color to find common ground in common sense. In the spirit of our namesakes Jim and Sarah Brady, we have fought for over 45 years to take action, not sides, and we will not stop until this epidemic ends. It’s in our hands.
