Colin Goddard Releases E-Book Just in Time for Presidential Debates

WTVR-TV6 reports that Colin Goddard, a survivor of the Virginia Tech shooting and gun control activist, is scheduled to speak at the University of Colorado in Boulder, just two hours before the first Presidential Debate between Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama in Denver. At 7 o’clock Goddard will formally release “10 Minutes That Changed My Life.”
Goddard is purposely holding the release on the same day as the presidential debate, hoping he can draw attention to the issue of gun control and the need for the candidates to take a decisive stance on the issue, instead of just talking about it in the wake of mass shooting like Virginia Tech or the Aurora theater shooting.

“Neither Mitt Romney or Obama have given thoughts on what they would do to reduce the number of us that are shot and killed every year,” Goddard told CBS 6. “During the next presidential term an average of 48,000 of us will be murdered by someone with a gun.”
Romney has stated that he does not support additional laws which do nothing more than burden law-abiding citizens while being ignored by criminals. Obama in August of this year reaffirmed through his spokesman support for renewing the ban on modern sporting rifles.  It remains to be seen if gun control will come up during tonight's debate. Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are scheduled to appear at a rally in Fishersville, Virginia on Thursday with the NRA's Wayne LaPierre and Chris Cox.
