Heather lost a member of her family to gun violence. Through her work with Brady, she hopes to prevent other families from experiencing gun violence. Due to Heather’s broad base of legal experience in highly regulated fields, she understands that government regulation touches every part of our lives. Heather does not understand why guns should be the only unregulated product accessible in our country. She believes that the government has an obligation to protect its citizens from dangerous products, and that gun manufacturers should be exposed to the same legal liability as all other product manufacturers.
