Westwood One News Correspondent JERRY BODLANDER joins us live from Dayton Ohio.
KRIS BROWN, President of Brady (formerly known as the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence) also joins us to offer her perspective.
As President of Brady, KRIS BROWN combines a lifelong background in policy, law, and grassroots activism. A veteran of gun violence prevention work, Ms. Brown started her career on Capitol Hill working for Rep. Jim Moran, advocating for the bill that would eventually become the groundbreaking Brady Act requiring background checks on federally licensed gun sales. At Brady, she has helped shape the conversation on gun violence as a national healthcarecrisis, launched the organization’s groundbreaking safe storage campaign to End Family Fire, and formed Brady’s “Team Enough” youth initiative after the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School massacre in Parkland, FL. A noted speaker and media commentator, Ms. Brown was featured in the November 2018 TIME magazine cover article, “Guns in America,” in which she noted that Brady is working to move the discussion of gun violence beyond the polarizing politics in American life. “There’s a huge amount of common ground on this issue in this country and I hope we’re finally at a tipping point where we can move forward with legislation and [programs] that actually protect people, and are entirely consistent with the Second Amendment.” Ms. Brown has also served as the Chief Legal Officer to a publicly traded company based in Switzerland and as a lawyer practicing at the law firm Weil, Gotshal & Manges.
