Sarah Brady says, "Rahm Emanuel, Good Friend of Common Sense Gun Laws"
This from a letter from Sarah Brady to a list of supporters:
I was so excited when I heard that Rahm Emanuel was going to be the Chief of Staff in the Obama White House.
Jim [Brady] and I know Rahm from when we worked closely with him to pass the Brady bill.
As our "go to" guy, we saw a man with integrity and dedication, who cared deeply about the cop on the street and those who were victims of gun violence. We honored Rahm with the Sarah Brady Visionary Award in 2007 in Washington, D.C. You can see that he has consistently and vocally supported strengthening Brady criminal background checks, banning military-style assault weapons, strengthening law enforcement, and closing the "Terror Gap."
We look ahead with great optimism. I know that as we move ahead, I can count on your ongoing support.
Its incredibly inspiring to have people like you and like Rahm Emanuel standing with us, who believe we can pass sensible gun laws to keep dangerous guns out of the hands of dangerous people to protect you, your family, and your community.
We dont want to waste a moment in moving ahead with our life-saving work. Please give a generous gift today to the Brady Campaign. Thank you.
Sarah Brady, Chair
