Publication: Washington Report, quarterly
PAC: National Handgun Control Voter Education Fund
Membership: 250,000 dues-paying members. HCI claims 1,000,000+ members, but this includes contacts by interested parties by any means.

In 2001, Handgun Control, Inc. changed its name to Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence. The organization originated (1974) as the National Council to Control Handguns (NCCH), a group which lobbied for government restrictions on the right to keep and bear arms through support for restrictions on the manufacture, importation, sale, transfer, and civilian possession of handguns. The organization voiced a desire for an eventual handgun ban through gradual steps, but changed its name and espoused goals due to results of a survey. In 1991, then HCI amended its Articles of Incorporation to reflect its support of restrictions on rifles and shotguns as well.

Additionally, in 2001, BCPGV absorbed the financially strapped "Million Mom March" (MMM) organization. MMM is a chapter-based organization formed in 1999 as a reaction to the shooting at the Jewish Community Center in suburban Los Angeles. Their stated goal is to win passage of "gun laws, including: (1) licensing of handgun owners, (2) registration of handguns, (3) creating consumer product safety standards for guns, (4) closing the "gun show loophole," and (5) limiting gun purchases to no more than one a month." They staged a march in Washington, D.C. On Mothers Day 2000 and have continued to build a national organization. The founder, Donna Dees-Thomases is a close friend of Bill and Hillary Clinton.

The Center to Prevent Handgun Violence (CPHV) is a BCPGV "educational" spin-off that portrays firearms and their ownership as inherently dangerous. Straight Talk About Risks (S.T.A.R.), CPHV's politically-based anti-gun curriculum targets schoolchildren aged pre-K through 12th grade. The CPHV is located at 1400 K Street, N.W., Suite 500, Washington, DC 20005.


Coalition to Stop Gun Violence (CSGV)

Headquarters: 100 Maryland Avenue, N.E.
Washington, DC 20002
(202) 544-7190
www.gunfree.org

President Emeritus: Michael K. Beard
Executive Director: Joshua Horwitz

The Coalition to Stop Gun Violence (CSGV), was originally formed in 1975 as the National Coalition to Ban Handguns (NCBH) "for the purposes of banning the importation, manufacture, sale, transfer, ownership and possession of handguns." In 1989, after expanding its efforts to include restrictions on all firearms, the group adopted its new name, Coalition to Stop Gun Violence.

The United Methodist Church was the principle founder of CSGV. CSGV's membership is comprised of individual supporters. Ex-CIA employee, Edward O. Welles, who also helped to form HCI, was an original NCBH board member and, reportedly, NCCH/HCI was an unreported member of the Coalition for several years.

CSGV's policy-making membership is comprised of the following 44 national organizations:

The Educational Fund to End Handgun Violence (EFEHV)

(202) 544-7227

Director: Josh Horwitz

The Violence Policy Center (VPC)

Headquarters: 1300 N Street, N.W.
Washington, DC 20005
(202) 783-4071
www.vpc.org

Executive Director: Josh Sugarmann
Of Counsel: Kristen Rand

The Violence Policy Center is the new name of the New Right Watch (NRW), a non-profit group that "researched" what it perceived as a new right-wing American political movement. NRW focused its attack on semi-automatic firearms with two releases: "Assault Weapons and Accessories in America" (1988), a joint effort with EFEHV, and "Assault Weapons: Analysis, New Research, and Legislation" (1989). Funding for New Right Watch was received from individual and foundation grants.

VPC is a non-profit national "educational" foundation that proposes firearms restrictions, including total handgun prohibition, as measures to reduce violence in America. VPC's Executive Director, Josh Sugarmann, formerly the Executive Director of the New Right Watch and, previously, with the National Coalition to Ban Handguns, authored a book attacking the NRA -- NRA: Money, Firepower, and Fear (1992). In 1997, VPC produced a report attacking NRA's Eddie Eagle program, calling it "Joe Camel with feathers". This attack was so scurrilous that many in the media denounced it. It stands as clear evidence that VPC is more interested in attacking NRA than in finding any rational or effective solutions to violence in America.
