The great thing about the Rolling Stone feature on America's unending gun nightmare is that it throws a big light on gunshot survivors. These people are almost invisible to mainstream media, and yet they greatly outnumber those who lost their lives.
In 2004, Jennifer Longdon, 54, and her then-fiancé, David, were in the parking lot of a local taco shop near their home in Phoenix, when they were sideswiped by a pickup truck. Someone inside the truck opened fire. The assailant was never found and no motive has been established.That woman was also armed at the time of the shooting. The feature also has a map that's packed with information like this: very mixed Hawaii has the lowest gun death rate per 100,000 people, and very white Alaska has the highest.
