Chris Brown, President, Brady:
Yes. I mean, I agree with the President. And these are just facts. Of course, we’re seeing a 50% increase in active shooter situations this year compared to last year in 2020, which, the last data we have, was the deadliest in US history 25 years ago. And any of that, by the way, and I think of it as Brady’s chief, obviously, a salve or any is possible, you know, positive news for any of us, but at least one of these There are few people who are our families today those who do not have children are coming home. And for me as a mother and as an American citizen, I find it subliminal because gun violence can be solved. It’s just that basic. What it is, is a public health epidemic. And, you know, in the ’50s when automobiles were fatal, we didn’t ask the question, “What is there that we can do to solve this?” It was everything we could do. And I would call on all of us to really think about those things because kids are dying today. It was the children who died in Sandy Hook and countless other situations. But last week it was black Americans targeting grocery shopping. Before that it was people in synagogues. Earlier these people were going to a concert. When is enough is the question we all have to ask. And I basically don’t understand why we don’t have a political body, especially the Senate, that just says it’s enough and let’s just do something simple. Let’s start here. Expand the Brady Background Check. They have stopped the sale of 40 lakh guns to those who should not have guns. Can’t we start there? And that may be passed tomorrow. It’s sitting in the Senate and that’s democracy to me. It is also doing something to recognize that this is a uniquely American problem. It doesn’t have to be like this.
