Ashley was accidentally shot by an intoxicated fellow student who was displaying his rifle.   After a desperate, but tragically, futile attempt at revival by Ashley’s twin sister, Amy, Ashley lost her life.   Ashley’s father subsequently was instrumental in halting the Florida’s legislature’s attempt to allow students to possess weapons on campus, one of several states considering such a questionable move.
