Gun Violence Prevention: Eliminate Crime Gun Sales

Recording: Gun Violence Prevention: Eliminate Crime Gun Sales, Mar 11, 2019

Gun violence is a serious threat across the country, and most agree that keeping guns from those who would use them to do harm is a critical step in ending gun deaths. One way that dangerous people acquire guns is through "bad apple" gun dealers - the irresponsible 5 percent of dealers that sell nearly 90 percent of all crime guns. Leaders from the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence - the leading national voice in the prevention of gun violence for more than 40 years - will discuss how the organization engages communities through impactful action in the fight to stem the flow of crime guns by shutting down or "reforming" bad apple gun dealers.
