On the morning of Jan 6, 2001, I was driving on I-71 in Cincinnati.

I was shot by a “drive-by” (according to the Cincinnati Police). The bullet entered through my shoulder and lodged in my neck. I was saved by two painters that saw me go off the road and crash into a guardrail (there are ANGELS on the highways). They called 911, and the life squad took me to the local hospital, where the surgeon removed the bullet. A great deal of nerve damage was done by the bullet, and as a result I have limited use of my left arm. The crime was never solved.

I was off work for six months. I managed to get through this ordeal with the help from the Good Lord, family and friends, and excellent physical therapists.

We must continue to work as hard as we possibly can to bring sanity back to gun ownership.
