Success Stories | Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence

Success Stories

The Brady Center and Campaign work to prevent gun violence by changing culture, changing laws, and changing the gun industry. We have brought and supported lawsuits that have forced the gun industry to change the way it does business, and led or assisted in cases to strike down dangerous gun laws, as well as efforts to defend laws that keep our communities safe.

Success story
Voters in Washington State chose overwhelmingly to pass I-594 to expand background checks on all gun sales. This historic victory will help save lives. Now we must build on this exciting momentum, and take the issue directly to voters in more states across the country.
Success story
Governor Brown has signed a law which establishes a process for law enforcement, or family members, to obtain a Gun Violence Restraining Order to temporarily limit access to firearms when there are warning signs or indications that the person is at risk for violence.
