While on a hike, Josh Williams used his Glock 43 to prevent a sexual assault. According to The Blaze, he was first planning to leave his gun at home until he felt a nagging consciousness that he should bring it with him.
At exactly 5:30 AM, Josh heard a loud scream for help. As he approached the area to see what was happening he shined his flashlight on a man who was sexually assaulting a young woman.
“I came up, pulled my gun and told him to get off of her,” Williams remarked. Immediately after he demanded for the man to drop on his knees and asked to see his hands. “That way I knew he didn’t have a weapon. And at that point, he was no threat, so I didn’t feel the need to shoot him,” Williams later said.
That was the first time he had ever aimed his gun at a person or had to consider using it in any way. However, he is an outgoing supporter of the 2nd Amendment. “It’s dark, and I don’t know what’s out there, so I have it to protect myself and other people. That’s what it’s all about anyway — to help other people with it, not just myself. I didn’t think I’d ever have to pull it. Did I want to? No, not at all. But just … right place, right time,” Williams said.
The assaulter attempted to get away but was later caught by Travis County police. He was identified as Richard McEachern, a 22-year-old Austin native. He was charged with charged with Sexual Assault and Harassment.
Countless heroes with guns have saved the day, like last month at the church shooting and Liberals continue to protest guns. As it seems they won’t stop till your gun rights are stripped away.
