Jim and Sarah Brady put out a Saturday morning statement on the Aurora violence:
“We are praying for the victims and their families in Aurora and understand the pain they are feeling and will feel for years to come.
Congress has done nothing since the mid-1990s to keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people. We pledge to keep fighting the NRA and entire gun lobby in an effort to strengthen our background checks to include all firearm purchases, ban assault clips with large magazines that enable mass killers, and to make it more difficult to obtain concealed carry permits.
Every person who agrees with us needs to contact their individual representatives and senators and let them know you are outraged over their caving to the gun lobby. Do it today and do it often in the future. Letters to your local newspaper are a big help as well. Be sure to get your friends and families involved in our efforts too.
We can win this fight, with your voices and your action.”
