Virginia Tech survivor speaks about her experiences for the first time

Lindsay was supposed to be in class on April 16th, 2007. She missed that day, when her professor and nine of her classmates were killed in the worst school shooting in US history. Only three survived. She shared a small office space with six of those killed. She is now a graduate student at the University of Texas at Austin. On Tuesday, 3/22, she spoke of her experiences publicly for the first time in testimony against SB 354, a bill which would force colleges and universities to allow guns. The author of the bill repeatedly cited “preventing another Virginia Tech” as his rationale for pushing the legislation.
