In April of 2007, 32 students died and 17 were wounded in Blacksburg, Virginia during a shooting at Virginia Tech University. Their lives had collided with that of a tortured loner, whom a judge had written was "mentally ill and in need of hospitalization, and presents an imminent danger to self or others as a result of mental illness." One of those wounded was a 21-year-old International Studies major, Colin Goddard who was shot four times. After recovering from injuries and finishing his degree, he knew he had to do something to keep dangerous people from having easy access to deadly weapons. Colin volunteered for the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, the nation’s largest gun control organization. He went undercover with a hidden camera into gun shows across America, to prove how easy it is for anyone to buy a gun—with no identification, no background check, and just a wad of cash. This is the inspirational story of one young man transforming tragedy into an opportunity for positive change. [adult content]
