Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence

The Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence is the leading national organization committed to stopping gun violence in our communities. The Brady Center's Legal Action Project provides free legal representation to gun violence victims in lawsuits against reckless gun manufacturers, dealers, and owners. We have pioneered the use of suits by gun violence victims to challenge industry practices that lead to gun crime. The Legal Action Project also files amicus curiae briefs nationwide in support of gun violence prevention laws, including a U.S. Supreme Court brief in the Second Amendment case, District of Columbia v. Heller. Through our Gun Industry Watch program, we research and publish investigative reports exposing corrupt and dangerous gun industry practices.
