“Kapsidelis tells the story of mass shootings unwaveringly from the perspective of survivors…. At a time when guns are posited as the only way to preserve life and safety, the events at Virginia Tech suggest that there are other means of survival and heroism.”

- Pamela Haag, author of “The Gunning of America: Business and the Making of American Gun Culture”
