Aurora shooting victim appears in gun control PSA -- VIDEO

While attending a midnight showing of The Dark Knight Rises in Aurora, Colo. this summer, Stephen Barton was shot in the face and neck. But compared to several other victims, he was lucky; Barton lived, and now he’s working to raise awareness of gun violence. According to his new PSA, 48,000 Americans will be shot and murdered during the next four years – “enough to fill over 200 theaters.” He urges viewers to visit, an organization that’s working to end gun violence. See Barton’s poignant PSA below.
