Buffalo victim’s mother invites lawmakers to help clean son’s wounds if they won’t act on guns

The Independent published this video item, entitled “Buffalo victim’s mother invites lawmakers to help clean son’s wounds if they won’t act on guns” – below is their description.

The mother of a survivor of the Buffalo mass shooting has invited lawmakers to come to her home and clean the wounds on her son’s bullet-ridden body if they continue to refuse to tackle America’s escalating gun violence.

Zeneta Everhart gave emotional testimony before the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday, describing the injuries that her son Zaire Goodman suffered after being a victim of the racist attack in Buffalo, New York.

“To the lawmakers who feel that we do not need stricter gun laws let me paint a picture for you: My son Zaire has a hole in the right side of his neck, two on his back, and another on his left leg, caused by an exploding bullet from an AR-15,” she told lawmakers.
