#GunCrisis Solution of the Day: Understanding that solutions need not conflict with rights

The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence shared a statement yesterday, congratulating President Obama on winning re-election and promising to work with him on behalf of Americans to reduce gun violence.

The release points out that during the second presidential debate, “President Obama discussed solutions such as banning assault weapons and background checks to keep guns out of the hands of criminals and the mentally ill — solutions that he underscored are consistent with his administration’s belief in the Second Amendment right to own guns.”

According to the Brady Campaign, numerous polls show that the overwhelming majority of Americans, including gun owners and NRA members, support sensible policies, like criminal background checks, that will save lives.
