Mission Statement

The mission of the Brady organization is to create a safer America for all of us that will lead to a dramatic reduction in gun deaths and injuries.

Description

As the leading voice on gun violence prevention, the Brady Center and Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence continues to bring together millions of Americans behind sensible and effective solutions that save lives. With a proven track record as the only organization to pass federal gun legislation, forty years of service and a focused and relevant three-pronged strategy, Brady is uniquely positioned to lead the social norm change around gun violence.

Brady’s audacious yet achievable goal to cut the number of U.S. gun deaths in half by 2025 is based on a strategy that centers on keeping guns out of the wrong hands through three impact-driven campaigns: (1) a policy focus to "Finish the Job" so that life-saving Brady background checks are applied to all gun sales; (2) to "Stop 'Bad Apple’ Gun Dealers" - the 5 percent of gun dealers that supply 90 percent of all crime guns; and (3) to lead a new national conversation to change social norms around the dangers of guns in the home, ultimately reducing the number of homicides, suicides, and unintentional shootings that happen every day.
