ALBERT LEA, Minn. — Locally, the gun debate will be seen through a different view in Albert Lea.

The Human Rights Commission, along with Paths to Peace will be showing the documentary “Living for 32”

It tells the story of 21-year old Colin Goddard and the role he played in saving lives during the tragic shooting at Virginia Tech in 2007.

Leaders say they hope the movie creates discussion about sensible gun reform.

“We hope people have a dialogue about sensible gun reform measures and are just able to talk about it,” Taryn Israel Nechanicky of the Albert Lea Human Rights Commission said.  “See how it impacted this person and see how he has been able to do with his life since surviving.”

She hopes the film creates peaceful and constructive conversation on the topic.

It starts at seven at the Marion Ross Performance Arts Center.
