My family secretly removed my gun. When I went to kill myself, it was gone. They saved my life. I didn’t realize that until 30 years later, as I sat in a Moms Demand Action meeting. I left that day knowing I was a survivor. It gives me chills now.

I’ll continue fighting for common-sense solutions to gun violence. I will continue to fight for Red Flag laws. I was lucky my family knew there was a mental health crisis; they didn’t need a Red Flag law. As a survivor, I know that Red Flag laws can and will save lives.
