Cassandra Montgomery

I am a survivor of gun violence associated with domestic violence. My ex-husband shot me twice at close range. This one event changed my life tremendously. Not only did I lose a husband who was supposed to have been my protector. But I was financially affected due to not being able to work because of my wounds. I thank God that I was able to bounce back. I lost everything from the act of a selfish person. My ordeal made me see things differently and made me aware to never settle for less. It taught me my worth. I am a true fighter for gun sense laws and support any woman that is dealing with domestic violence or any other gun violence situation.
