Cardin Statement on the Passing of James Brady

BALTIMORE – U.S. Senator Ben Cardin (D-Md.), released the following statement on the passing of former White House Press Secretary James Brady:


“James Brady was truly an incredible public servant. Whatever your personal politics, Jim deserves great respect for turning a life-changing tragedy into a public campaign to save lives. I was deeply saddened to hear of his passing. My thoughts and prayers are with Sarah and his entire family. 


“Before circumstances transformed Jim into a national advocate for sensible gun safety laws, his wit, tactical mind and commitment to duty earned him the admiration of his peers and the media.  After being shot, the duo of Jim and Sarah Brady proved to be one of the most passionate gun control advocates of their time.


“Jim Brady’s life was more than just inspirational, it was impactful. He will be missed. ”
