All my adult life I have worked and campaigned to ensure everyone can love whomever they choose. I consider being able to love whomever you want to be a most sacred human right and I will do all I can to make sure love is allowed to flourish.

Why Did the Brady Campaign Cut 88 Percent of Its New 'Zero Minutes of Fame' Video?

Jonathan Hutson | Posted 04.30.2017 | Politics

Too many reporters have a conveyor belt mentality, blithely writing copy based on press releases without doing any real reporting or even basic fact checking. And sometimes, their stories blow up spectacularly when their investigative laziness is revealed.

Jonathan Hutson | Posted 04.29.2017 | Politics

Gun violence prevention activists have launched a petition calling for the Brady Campaign to take down its "hypocritical" new "Zero Minutes of Fame" video ad which spotlights the very mass shooters that the campaign is designed to obscure.

How Gun Violence Changed My Life Forever

Kim Parker Russell | Posted 04.29.2017 | Politics
Kim Parker Russell

Four days after the Columbine massacre, on April 24, 1999, I was on a date with my friend Philip in Atlanta when we were robbed by a teen with a stolen gun. He shot both of us and Philip was killed. And every spring, no matter how hard I try to enjoy the season, I'm reminded of that night. I can smell it.

No More Sandy Hooks or Mass Destructions

Rep. Charles Rangel | Posted 12.14.2016 | Politics
Rep. Charles Rangel

Gun laws and rights are controversial but protecting our loved ones from senseless violence should not divisive. We should no longer tolerate cycles of inaction after the media frenzy, heartbreaking interviews, political speeches, and public outrage.

The NRA Requires More Background Checks for its Employees Than for Gun Owners

Peter J. Ognibene | Posted 10.08.2016 | Politics

The NRA is doing all it can to make it easier for practically anyone to get anything from a revolver to a high-capacity, semi-automatic weapon without having to suffer the indignity of a background check.

The Routine-ness Of The Gun Law Fight

Eric Schmeltzer

After thousands of mass shootings in the last 15 years with no action, now is as good a time as any for those of us in favor of sensible gun laws to reconsider our place in this situation, too. Massacres, and the response from all sides and all parties, has become routine. The sense of urgency is gone. Time to get it back.

Brady Campaign Counters Gun Industry in Three Important Ways

Mike Weisser | Posted 05.04.2016 | Politics
Mike Weisser

Every industry -- guns, cars, communications to name a few -- wants to make the product safety argument on its own terms. Most gun makers, car makers, or whatever makers, think first about sales and profits, with safety coming in a distant third, or fourth, or fifth.

Dana H. Glazer

I miss Sarah. I miss her fierce sense of joy and determination. She will always have a place in my heart. I was honored that Sarah and Jim shared their lives with me, so that I could share their story with a much larger audience. It is a true privilege to be making this film about two of our greatest American heroes.

Brady Campaign Spoofs NRA and Gun-Friendly States With TripAdvisor Parody

Mike Weisser | Posted 05.16.2015 | Politics
Mike Weisser

The real challenge in social media is not reaching the folks who are already committed to what you believe; it's reaching the folks who can become committed because they like the way you say it, and this video says it better than it's ever been said.

Parents Can Stop School Shootings

Daniel Gross | Posted 02.11.2015 | Impact
Daniel Gross

We cannot ignore this simple truth: Too many shootings occur because improper weight is given to the risks that come with gun ownership, particularly in homes with children and teens. A gun in the home increases the risk of an unintentional shooting, suicide and homicide.

Georgia's Guns-Everywhere Law: A Little Food for Thought

Fran Moreland Johns | Posted 06.01.2014 | Politics
Fran Moreland Johns

At kids' schools? Why not. Schools will be authorized to arm their staff members. This assumes that staff members will be quicker on the trigger than recent school shooters, and hopefully will shoot the shooters rather than innocent others.

Isn't It All Really Terrorism?

Daniel Gross | Posted 01.23.2014 | Politics
Daniel Gross

Terrorism is politically motivated, and most gun violence in our nation is not. But when it comes to the impact of the easy availability of guns, it is hard to argue against the premise that we are being terrorized.

Screaming for One Direction

Bob McKinnon | Posted 10.26.2013 | Impact

Caring is not a feeling it is an action. If we care about school safety, we need to move beyond hoping for it when we drop off our kids and towards acting upon it every day after we do.

The Science of Panic: Why the NRA Is Wrong About Defensive Gun Use

Walker Bragman | Posted 04.19.2013 | Politics
Walker Bragman

I question Wayne LaPierre's underlying assumption that armed civilians are competent enough in crisis scenarios to ward off or kill an attacker. Though the scenario plays out in virtually every western and action film ever made, good guys stopping bad guys with guns is a rare occurrence.

Love Beats Politics and Money to Inspire Substantial Change

Love is like the seed that is in itself. It multiplies, elevates, and corrects errors, especially the erroneous thinking that those who are deficient in love have about themselves.
