We've heard from many of experts who've opined on the gun debate. But now a man wounded in the 1999 Columbine High School has penned a strong letter to President Obama giving his own expert advice on gun control.
FOX News Radio's Jeff Monosso reports in our special series "Guns In America":
Guns In America.
Evan Todd was 15 when he hid under a desk in Columbine High School. Shot in the back, shrapnel in the face, begging gunman Dylan Klebold not to kill him.
Todd's written an open letter to President Obama saying his proposed gun control initiatives...
(Todd) "They don't make sense."
Calling them misguided.
(Todd) "It's not going to keep children safe. They're still unprotected. There are still lunatics out there. And quite frankly people have a right to defend themselves."
Todd writes that banning assault rifles proved ineffective the first time and he calls universal background checks...
(Todd) "Just another huge bureaucracy."
That would lead, he says, to more guns on the black market.
