Statement from Brady Campaign President Dan Gross in Response to Newtown, CT School Shooting:
WASHINGTON - December 15 - From Dan Gross, the Brady Campaign President:
Like all Americans, our hearts are broken by this terrible tragedy. We send our thoughts and prayers to all those directly affected. Across the country, we gave extra strong hugs to our kids when they came home safely from school. But in the name of those who didn't and in the name of the eight children and teens that die from guns every day in our nation, we cannot let it end there. We have to take terrible moments like this and use it as a catalyst to demand the sensible change in our nation that is too long overdue. We are better than this.
Please go to WeAreBetterThanThis.org and sign the letter of condolence to the families of the victims in Connecticut We all just want to live in a safer nation.
In response to President Obama’s statement today:
We were moved by President Obama's raw emotion during his remarks on Friday. We are committed to working with him to channel it into the change that is too long overdue.
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 communities.
