62: Activism, School Shootings, and How to Define a Survivor

Omar, Colin, and Christian for "No Guns on Campus"

On April 16, 2007, a gunman shot and killed 32 people in the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history at Virginia Tech. Colin Goddard and Reema Samaha were in French class that day--Colin was shot four times and survived, but Reema was killed.The horrible events of that day launched Colin into activism, as well as Reema's brother, Omar Samaha. Along the way they made friends with Christian Heyne, the Vice President of Policy at Brady, and each made undercover videos investigating the gun show loophole.

Today, all three again join host JJ to talk about Virginia Tech, gun violence, activism, and how to define a survivor.
