Most people think if they send their child to a nice school in a nice area, then gun violence wonâ€™t affect them. But I was put into the most dangerous situation in my life in my French class, and I was almost killed.
I wanted to share my experience of gun violence and show other people to help them become educated and not allow gun violence to happen to you directly. I donâ€™t want people to have to go down the same road that I did, with the same conclusion.
Except I want to achieve the goal by allowing people the choice of how best to defend themselves, including carrying a gun if they do so lawfully and responsibly. Colin wants to solve this problem by promoting the fantasy that rules and policies stop madmen. The loser who shot Colin passed several background checks, patiently got around Virginia’s gun rationing law which allows only one handgun a month, violated the Commonwealth of Virginia’s laws on carrying a firearm without a license, and finally violated Virginia Tech’s policy of forbidding firearms on campus. These laws utterly failed Colin Goddard, and his solution is to try it again, but with vigor. Sounds like a brilliant plan!
