My cousin Ethan was at a friend’s house. They decided to take out the friend’s father’s loaded gun. My cousin Ethan and his friend were joking around with the gun, and it ended with Ethan accidentally killing himself. That was on January 31, 2018, and more than a year later, Ethan’s parents (my aunt and uncle) passed Ethan’s Law, a law advocating gun safety, in their home state. Now they are trying to get it passed nationally.
Ethan was only 15. And although he is gone, we are more angry than ever. We need change NOW.
