Stay strong girl…..

A teenager who was shot in the back during the Umpqua College shootings on Thursday has said she is still in favor of gun ownership – despite her narrow escape.

Cheyeanne Fitzgerald, 16, remains critically ill in hospital following an operation to remove one of her kidneys but her brother Jesse, speaking exclusively to outside the Mercy Medical Center in Roseburg, says she is beginning to improve.

He also revealed that the family have discussed the issue of gun ownership and said that all – including Cheyeanne – remain opposed to controls.
