More than twenty years ago, Suzanna Gratia Hupp witnessed the death of her parents at the hands of a gunman at a Luby's cafeteria in Killeen Texas. When the rampage was over, twenty-three people were killed and dozens more injured. Till the 2007 Virginia Tech shooting, the Luby's massacre was the deadliest shooting rampage to ever take place in the United States.
This experience moved her to run for the Texas House of Representatives, where she pushed for concealed handgun laws that eventually went into effect in Texas in 1996. Since then, she's remained vocal on the topic of gun control, authoring a book on the topic: "From Luby’s to the Legislature: One Women’s Fight Against Gun Control."
She explains how her thinking on gun control has evolved and describes what she hopes Vice President Joe Biden's meetings with NRA leaders will accomplish.
