VIA| With the recent San Bernardino shootings and the three-year anniversary of the Sandy Hook massacre, many Americans’ minds are on gun control measures and the Second Amendment. But it’s easy to forget that these issues have been discussed for decades.
In 1991, a “madman” drove his car through the front of a Luby’s cafeteriain Killeen, Texas, took out a gun, and methodically shot 50 people, killing 23. One of the diners there was Dr. Susan Gratia-Hupp, whose parents died at the gunman’s hands.
Many Texans already know the story of Dr. Gratia-Rupp, who was later elected to the Texas House of Representatives and spearheaded that state’s concealed carry laws. But if you haven’t heard her horrifying tale,watch her testimony in front of a U.S. Senate committee to learn how the tragedy could have been largely avoided.
