Brady Campaign on Colo. Shooting: We Don't Want Sympathy

July 20, 2012

The Brady Campaign, the large gun-control lobby, on Friday released a strongly worded statement after the lethal shooting in Colorado.

"This tragedy is another grim reminder that guns are the enablers of mass killers and that our nation pays an unacceptable price for our failure to keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people," said Brady Campaign President Dan Gross in a statement.

Gross also acknowledged President Obama's statement on Friday but said that statements aren't enough.

"As someone who has suffered the lasting impact of gun violence, and President of Brady, I can tell you that we don't want sympathy. We want action," Gross said.

The lobby's statement comes even as members of Congress release their own statements about the shooting.
