Brandon Maxfield


Age: 29

anti-gun advocate who at age 7 was accidentally shot in the face as the bullet tearing through his neck and smashing his spine and had been confined to a wheelchair, who along with his attorney went after the maker of the low-cost and cheaply made .380-caliber handgun that a family friend accidentally fired, winning a $24-million judgment and driving the gun maker out of business and who saw little of the money, but over the years he spent battling Bryco Arms and its owner, who became a hero among those fighting the proliferation of easy-to-get, cheap-to-buy "Saturday night specials".
