Hillary Clinton to Receive Gun Control Award

The Brady Center to Prevent Gun violence is set to present Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton with the inaugural Governor Mario M. Cuomo Leadership award at the Bear Awards on Nov. 19, The Washington Free Beacon reports.

The awards, named after Jim “Bear” Brady, President Reagan’s secretary who was shot during an assassination attempt, will be held at Cipriani on Broadway in New York City with tickets to the event priced at $1,000 each.

According to one of the nation’s leading gun control advocacy organizations, the award seeks to “honor the efforts of individuals who have distinguished themselves in their dedication to Sarah and Jim’s vision of a nation without gun violence and who embody their remarkable spirit, strength and perseverance, to the extent that anyone else can.”
