Build on the Brady law [Letter]

Former presidential press secretary James Brady responded to personal tragedy by becoming a tenacious advocate for common-sense gun laws aimed at preventing dangerous people from having easy access to guns ("Victim became symbol of fight for gun control," Aug. 5).

Jim and his wife, Sarah, worked tirelessly to pass the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act, a law directly responsible for saving countless lives.

More than 2 million gun sales to criminals, domestic abusers and other dangerous people have been blocked because of the couple's work. We need to demand that Congress finish the job Jim started and expand background checks to all gun sales.

David Kosterlitz, Bethesda
