When you stand for our Second Amendment rights, you tend to talk a lot about responsible gun owners. They are, by and large, the majority of gun owners in this country. They follow the rules, don’t hurt anyone, and just want to be left alone. Anti-gunners, however, tend to not see them. They tend to ignore their existence and instead focus on the criminals who make up a tiny minority of people are usually obtained their guns illegally anyway.
But they don’t just focus on them. There’s also the potential they’ll point out someone like this, too.
An intoxicated man brandished a gun and fired it inside a home Saturday night, police said.
The gunman, 44-year-old John Ambrose, was arrested at a Timber Springs Drive home shortly after 10:30 p.m., according to an email sent Monday by Joliet Police Officer Olin Torkelson.
When the law arrived, “Ambrose fled into the residence, refusing to speak with officers,” Torkelson said.
“Officers determined that Ambrose was intoxicated, brandished a firearm, made threats towards family members, and discharged a firearm inside the residence,” Torkelson said. “Family members had exited the residence prior to officers arriving on scene.”
