In honor of @MomsDemand & @Everytown’s Gun Violence Survivor Week, I am sharing my #MomentsThatSurvive story publicly for the first time. While I was trying to break up with a man, he grabbed me and pressed a gun to the back of my head. 1/6
He asked, “do you think it’s loaded or not?” He let out a low laugh, and then pulled the trigger. I heard a click. He immediately said “what the f*ck”, obviously perplexed as to why the gun didn’t fire. 2/6
