Thx to @TishJames, we were just delivered news of a MAJOR legal win against the NRA.

Meanwhile, *right now* @bradybuzz leaders are testifying for vital gun violence prevention bills in both Colorado and Nevada.

Naturally, the NRA is opposing both of these bills.

The Colorado bill (SB 21-256) would empower localities to adopt gun safety measures that meet the needs of their own local communities.

That's common-sense. It's exactly what local govts should do, esp in the face of CO's gun suicide crisis.

But the NRA thinks it's "confusing."
Right now, Coloradan & gun violence survivor @MaishaFields is testifying in support of this crucial gun violence prevention bill.

Major urban areas here in CO have seen astronomical spikes in gun violence. Coloradans need sensible and lifesaving solutions, like SB 21-256. #COleg

This decision is a historic win for the rule of law and a sure sign of defeat for the NRA and its corrupt leadership.

The NRA cannot escape justice. Americans are sick of their lethal abuse.

Full @bradybuzz statement here:… #EnoughIsEnough
Defeating the NRA has long been a mission of @bradybuzz, the org I am proud to lead.

For too long, the NRA has funneled blood money into blocking solutions to gun violence.

They even tried to stop the Brady Bill and background checks from becoming law.…
When Jim Brady was recovering from his bullet wounds to the head, Sarah Brady called the NRA and left a voicemail.

“My name is Sarah Brady. And you’ve never heard of me, but I am going to make it my life’s ambition to try to put you all out of business.” #DissolvetheNRA

40 years ago on March 30, 1981, a bullet changed the course of U.S. history.

White House Press Sec Jim Brady was shot in the head when a gunman tried to kill President Reagan. Jim was paralyzed. But he used the tragedy to take on the NRA & change our nation's gun laws.

President Reagan was struck by a single bullet. He'd feel the effects for years. Two officers were also wounded.

Jim was shot in the head. He'd been on the job as Reagan's @WhiteHouse press secretary — his dream job — for just two months. cc @POTUS
The news that day falsely reported that Jim Brady was dead. It's not hard to undertand why — the scene itself was gruesome, and Jim's injury was near fatal.

Here's video/audio of Jim's wife, Sarah, reflecting on getting the news. #OnThisDay #TodayinHistory
