Tom Nolan available for comment on gun control

Wednesday marks the 30th anniversary of the attempted assassination of Ronald Reagan and the wounding of his press secretary James Brady. Brady suffered a severe head wound and was left partially paralyzed and confined to a wheelchair. He and his wife, Sarah, went on to become ardent advocates for gun control and fought for stricter hand gun laws. Their lobbying efforts led to the signing of the “Brady Bill” in 1993.

Thomas Nolan, an associate professor of criminal justice at BU’s Metropolitan College, is available to offer commentary and analysis on the outlook for gun control today.
