WASHINGTON: Advocacy group Handgun Control changed its name last

week to honor the work of former Ronald Reagan press secretary Jim Brady

and his wife, Sarah. It will now be known as the Brady Campaign to

Prevent Gun Violence. Its sister organization, the Center to Prevent

Handgun Violence, has also changed its name, to the Brady Center to

Prevent Gun Violence. Both Jim and Sarah Brady have been vocal

supporters and lobbyists for gun control since Jim Brady was shot in the

head in 1981 during an attempt on President Reagan's life.
