Brady pushes German-style gun laws

After a horrific crime spree in Alabama which left ten people dead, Sarah Brady appeared with President Barack Obama to push for more "Common sense gun laws" which would prevent such tragedies in the future.

Brady, long-time gun control advocate and head of Handgun Control Inc. spoke passionately from the White House porch, surrounded by Secret Service agents armed with a wide variety of rifles and pistols, making the case that we should model our gun control laws on the much stricter laws of Germany, where most people are not permitted to own a firearm and only an elite few are elgible for permits to carry weapons of any kind.

Brady said that, "If we had German-style laws, things like this simply wouldn't happen."
