Quick Reform Movements and Ideas Overview

The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence is a gun reform organization that has had several names but one purpose: restricting the availability of guns. It achieved a modicum of success when it advocated for the passage of the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act in 1993. It was also instrumental in the passage of the Federal Assault Weapons Ban. As a result of the successful efforts by Sarah Brady, wife of Jim Brady who was injured in an assassination attempt on President Ronald Reagan, the organization was renamed in their honor.
