Subject line: Stop Extremism Now
The Brady Center is the first line of defense against the ever-growing extremism of the NRA bosses and the gun lobby. Your financial support is crucial to our success.
This past year, we fought against the NRA's outrageous agenda to:
permit 18 year-olds to legally purchase, own, use, and carry a concealed gun;
push guns on college campuses;
twist the recent Supreme Court rulings to allow "any gun, anywhere, for anyone."
The Brady Center is the largest, and only, gun violence prevention organization fighting for:
justice for gun victims in the courts, like the 10 year-old in Kansas who was shot and killed by his father, a domestic violence abuser who was able to easily purchase a gun illegally from a rogue gun dealer;
Americans who want to walk into Starbucks and anywhere else without the fear of openly armed strangers; and
a stronger Brady background check system.
We saw a new level of extremism this past year — from Sarah Palin and her guns to people protesting in parks with assault weapons strapped to their backs. The NRA's extreme agenda costs lives. Our weak gun laws lead to 100,000 Americans being shot each year.
Do you believe that this country is better off with a policy of "any gun, anywhere, for anyone?" No way!
