Brady Campaign and Center Statement On Las Vegas Shooting

WASHINGTON - Brady Campaign and Center Co-presidents Kris Brown and Avery Gardiner issued the following joint statement on the shooting at a country music festival last night in Las Vegas.

"Last night in Las Vegas, America suffered the deadliest mass shooting in our nation’s history. Our hearts go out to the victims and their families, and to all Americans who have had enough of gun violence in this country. Americans need to be safe in public places, whether at country music concerts, dance clubs, schools, churches, or baseball fields.

We are done debating. We need comprehensive gun safety laws in order to protect our citizens from these random acts of violence that threaten our everyday lives. Congress needs to act now to ensure the safety of all Americans."
