WATCH “MEET THE PRESS” SUNDAY – NBC – 10:00 AM


BRADY CAMPAIGN

Dear Friend,

I’ll be appearing on NBC’sMeet the Press” tomorrow morning. The executive vice president of the NRAWayne LaPierre — will be there, too.

I hope you’ll tune in and watch the show. I also hope the conversation reminds you why it’s so important to support the Brady Campaign and sensible gun laws.

Honestly, I’m a little nervous about tomorrow’s interview.

But since my daughter Jessi was murdered last year in the Aurora movie theater shooting, I’ve learned a few things….

I’ve learned that gun lobby extremists and groups like the NRA spend millions every year to stop Congress from expanding Brady background checks…

I’ve learned that too many Americans — 90 men, women and children every day — die because of gun violence…

…And I’ve learned that the more I share my story, the more Americans want to help us end gun violence.

It was yet another awful week of mass shootings in our nation. But I won’t stop fighting for what’s right.

Neither should you.

Please tune in to Meet the Press tomorrow, then make your most generous gift to the Brady Campaign.

Help me continue the fight for sensible gun laws that will save lives.

With appreciation,

Sandy Signature

Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence

P.S. — Many people have reached out to say they appreciated my interview with NPR this week. If you missed it, you can listen to it here. I’m hoping tomorrow’s conversation on Meet the Press will be just as civil and will help more Americans understand why it’s time to put aside politics and end gun violence.

 

Remember the NRA’s fight against a national gun registry? PURE HYPOCRISY, PLAIN AND SIMPLE – The NRA maintains its own national gun registry! 1

“NRA’s LaPierre “reminds me of the clowns at the circus,” Malloy says”

Gov. Dan Malloy, D-Conn., whose state was wracked by tragedy in December when a gunman killed 20 small children and six faculty members at an elementary school in Newtown, Conn., slammed the National Rifle Association Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” saying NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre “reminds me of the clowns at the circus – they get the most attention.”

“This guy is so out of whack, it’s unbelievable,” Malloy said, saying the NRA simply will not compromise “on anything to do with guns.”

Instead, Malloy said, the NRA is protecting “the ability of the gun industry to sell as many guns to as many people as possible – even if they’re deranged, mentally ill, a criminal background, they don’t care. They want to sell guns.”  FULL  ARTICLE

What the NRA Doesn’t Want You to Know
For years the NRA has actively fought against and prevented research on the causes and costs of gun violence. Why have we put up so long with efforts to block all research on a huge public health threat that injures and kills tens of thousands of Americans every year? Continue reading…

“The real fear that fuels the gun-rights movement” 1

NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre revealed again Wednesday why the gun control debate doesn’t really revolve around the 2nd Amendment. The debate isn’t about rights. It’s about fear. LaPierre confessed this to Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL):

“What people all over the country fear today is being abandoned by their government. If a tornado hits, if a hurricane hits, if a riot occurs that they’re going to be out there alone. And the only way they’re going to protect themselves in the cold and the dark, when they’re vulnerable, is with a firearm. And I think that indicates how relevant and essential the Second Amendment is in today’s society to fundamental human survival.”
