Brady was critically injured during the failed assassination attempt on President Reagan’s life in 1981. Brady survived the attack and pressed for a background check law that now bears his name.
While the anti-gun Left claims these Brady background checks have been a success, recent Justice Department reports show otherwise.
As the graphic above shows, only 13 bad guys were actually taken off the streets for illegally trying to buy guns in one year.
Nevertheless, Majority Leader Harry Reid and Senate Democrats want to expand background checks to include all gun buyers — a scheme that would help this administration to establish an illegal gun registry.
Before departing for their August recess, Senator Reid promised he would schedule an upcoming vote on universal background checks — perhaps in the early fall.
