Another good guy with a gun saves woman from alleged rape

How do you stop the real war on women? With a Glock 43 and an open carry permit.

Josh Williams, 39, is another good guy with a gun, a hero who stopped the alleged rape of a woman in September. Williams, a resident of Austin, Texas, likes to go running along the Hike-and-Bike trail at least once a week. In the early mornings, he carries a cell phone, a flashlight, and his firearm.

In an interview with KVUE News, Williams explained that he carries his firearm while jogging in the early morning: "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."

On the morning of September 15, around 5:30 a.m., Williams was running when he heard a woman screaming. Pointing his flashlight in the direction of the screams, he found a woman being sexually assaulted. According to KVUE, this crime was one of a series of recent similar attacks in the area.

Williams immediately went into action.

"I came up, pulled my gun and told him to get off of her," he said. "Get on your knees and show me your hands."

The assailant, identified by police as 22-year-old Richard McEachern, fled the scene. Police managed to arrest him days later, aided by Williams' description and the description from the victim. He has been charged with sexual assault and is currently in the Travis County Jail.

The armed citizen is the first responder.

According to the NYT, this is the FIRST instance of a person defending with a gun.

"Another good guy with a gun saves woman from alleged rape"

BTW a September 19, 2017, local KXAN report noted:

According to the affidavit, an armed Good Samaritan said he was jogging on the trail when he heard a woman screaming. When he approached the two people on the ground, he said the suspect tried to leave, but he pulled out his gun and told the suspect “to stay on his knees.” However, when the victim got up, she blocked the Good Samaritan’s line of fire. That’s when the suspect grabbed the woman’s garments and ran away. [Emphasis added]

Only in the People's Socialist Kakistocracy of Austin, the rape victim helps the rapist (temporarily) get away.

As in deliberately blocked his line of fire? Or just in the way?

I knew women were basically nuts, but that takes the cake.

The armed citizen is the first responder.

According the NYT, an armed citizen has never stopped an attack.

“Aiming as best he could, he fired two shots toward the attackers. However, the attackers were at the front of the church, and Van Wyk was four rows from the back. His little revolver, with its two-inch barrel, was designed for close-range self-defense.”

..
“Van Wyk didn’t know at the time that one of the two shots he fired at long distance inside the church had hit one of the terrorists, and they were already in fast retreat.”

..
“In all, the terrorists killed 11 people and wounded 58.”

‘Alleged’ rape? You mean possible rape?
