Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence |

A New and Updated Brady

The Brady Law went into effect 25 years ago on February 28, 1994. Just as we celebrate this major milestone, legislation to update Brady Background Checks is moving in Congress — marking the most progress the movement to end gun violence has won in decades. This exciting time calls for a new look for Brady – one that renews our dedication to bringing all Americans together to end gun violence. Check out our new look and new site now!
