It’s interesting how staring down the bore of a 20-gauge shotgun can help a man reacquaint himself with civility:


A 13-year-old boy had to point a shotgun at a Bloomsburg man to get him to stop choking his mother in a December altercation at their home, Locust Township Police Department reported in filing charges earlier this month.


Samuel Russell Bennick, 34, of 335 W. Fourth St., Bloomsburg, was charged with a misdemeanor count of simple assault, criminal mischief and theft by unlawful taking, and three misdemeanor counts of recklessly endangering another person for his alleged actions on Dec. 25 and 26 at the home of his girlfriend of 55 days, Wendy Champoux, of 209 Quaker Meeting House Road, according to the affidavit of probable cause.


I’m very relieved that this young man had the courage to act decisively to save his mother, and that he did not have to fire the 20-gauge slug in the chamber to stop the assault. Going Walt Kowalski was enough.




Sometimes we forget that the best defensive gun uses—and by far, the most frequent ones—are those where the mere presence or display of a firearm stops a crime.


Domestic violence is not okay, but leaving your abuser doesn’t always end the abuse, and a restraining order is just a piece of paper.


Take a class. Connect with a group in your area. Protect your firearm and teach others gun safety.


Together, we can empower women to strengthen their personal protection plan to ensure they are never victimized again.
