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)

President: Michael K. Beard Co-Chairpersons: Ethel Kennedy, Coretta Scott King
Judy Collins Monsignor John J. Egan Walter E. Fauntroy Dr. Dorothy Height Comm. George Napper Harry Nillson Dr. Alvin F. Pouissant Rabbi David Sapperstein
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:
American Academy of Pediatrics American Association of Suicidology American Ethical Union Americans for Democratic Action American Jewish Committee American Jewish Congress American Psychiatric Association American Public Health Association Baptist Peace Fellowship of North America The Bible Holiness Movement, International B'nai B'rith Women Center for Science in the Public Interest Central Conference of American Rabbis Child Welfare League Church of the Brethren, Washington Office Citizens For Safety The Communitarian Network The Council of The Great City Schools The DISARM Education Fund Fellowship Reconciliation Friends Committee on National Legislation International Ladies Garment Workers Union Jesuit Conference Office of Social Ministries Jewish Community Center Association Loretto Community Mennonite Central Comm., DC Office National Association of Social Workers National Council of Jewish Women, Inc.

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.
