When I was 24, my friend killed himself by shooting himself in the head in front of me. I had naively ignored a story that he had gotten drunk and fired a shot at his ex-girlfriend a few weeks prior. Domestic violence, alcohol and guns are a deadly combination. I was lucky he did not shoot me.

Reacting shows support for gun violence survivors.
