Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence..
We Are Saddened by Another Campus Shooting
Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and families touched by yesterday's gun violence at Northern Illinois University.
At a time when the country confronts one mass shooting after another — six separate multiple murders across the country in just the last two weeks — we need to strengthen America's gun laws now more than ever.
Over the years, the Brady Campaign has proposed numerous common-sense measures to reduce and prevent gun violence. It may be difficult to stop 'suicide shooters' like the Northern Illinois University killer, but there are steps we can take as a nation to make us all safer.
Congress' passing and the President's signing of the NICS improvement Amendments Act to strengthen the Brady background checks system was a positive first step. Now, we need to close the gun show loophole.
As we grieve with the victims and families of this latest mass shooting, we also need to take action — to call on public officials, opinion leaders, advocates, and others — indeed, everyone — to do their part to address, and end, the gun violence in our country.
Much more needs to be done to help make our schools and communities safer. We are so grateful that you are with us in this fight.
