Our mission is to reduce gun violence 25% by 2025. They say it can't be done. But as the largest national, non-partisan, grassroots organization leading the fight to prevent gun violence, Brady is dedicated to creating an America free from gun violence, where all Americans are safe at home, at school, at work, and in their communities.

There is no one solution to end this epidemic of gun violence and no one side has the answer. So our comprehensive approach fights every problem with more than 45 years of research and real-world experience. Let's put the Brady plan into action now and get the job done right.
