Gillian's Defense Fund

$3,010 of $20,000 goal

Raised by 40 people in 8 months
Created May 19, 2018
We are seeking support to pay legal bills in relation to a case involving Gillian, who is (was) a concealed carry pistol permit holder, and her pistol on a school campus.
We can't share all the details while the case is pending, but it has made the news, and the details given in the news, as you might expect, are largely wrong. 
Gillian is an active competitive shooter, a member of GSSF, and a regular winter league competitor.  She applied for, and received, her unrestricted carry permit shortly after her 22nd birthday, in accordance with New York law. 
Gillian started shooting at about age 12 and has gained proficiency in pistol, rifle, and archery. 

Any monies raised here will go directly to pay Gillian's attorney, and any unused monies will be donated to the NRA-ILA at the conclusion of the case. 
Our Constitution in general, and the 2nd Amendment in particular,  is under attack from those who would leave us defenseless.  Please help support this cause, and it will surely help us all.

Another day in court today. This is our second trip in a week to see a new judge. Our attorney had several subpoenas for the BOCES school in question which were signed and will soon be served.
Our next date is 2/25, or sooner, and it looks like this may go to trial. I would have thought this matter would have been settled long ago, but there are "gray" areas of law to deal with.
We are hopeful that this effort will result in a positive result not just for Gillian, but for all schools in the nation. The whole "gun free zone" business has been demonstrated to be a magnet for crazies with some insane agenda.
Removing our God ordained right to self defense is simply inhuman and needs to be changed.

We went to court again today and the can is kicked further down the road. The current judge is leaving the bench and a new judge will be taking over as of 1 January. Our next date is mid-January with the new judge. And the meter just keeps turning over. The State and the DA don't care, but we sure do.
The idea that the DA wants to press this case baffles me.
Please help in any way possible.
Thanks for all your help to date!

The previous court date got delayed, the new one being 12/4. With any luck, and your prayers, this will be the finale. After this, though, we should all take a look at New York laws, and at what the Governor and Assembly might do in the coming year, and prepare for changes.
Right now, our focus is on Gillian and this case. There will be many more like it. Again, please pray for a reasonable outcome.
Thank you all for your support. I'll post again Tuesday.

t our attorneys request, we hired an investigator to help get information out of the school employees. He can only ask them to speak with. We'll see how that plays out.
I think we can all see in this a cautionary tale of where the current anti-gun laws are moving. Between making more places off-limits to firearms, lowering the bar for felony offenses, and creating "red flag" laws that will allow anyone, neighbor, relative, or even stranger, make an allegation against a gun owner, and the first response is to confiscate firearms.
This is not the America I grew up in that on the basis of a mere allegation, or sense of fear, that someone "might" do "something" that rights are infringed. Not just the 2nd Amendment, but all others as well. It attacks the law abiding much more than the criminal that is by definition lawless.
Take as an example the so-called"assault rifle", the ubiquitous AR-15 that so many people believe to be so evil. The fact is that more people are murdered in this country each year with the common household hammer than all rifles combined. The data is available to all on the CDC website. Does the main stream media read and print that material? No.
New Jersey and New York are planning an all-out assault on our rights, starting with the 2nd, and you can be assured the 1st is next.
This case is but one of many that are playing out in courts everywhere, and it must not be allowed to continue. Write your state legislators and get involved before you become the next victim.
Thanks for your support of Gillian's case. With luck and God's guidance, we'll prevail.
God bless and Happy Thanksgiving, and Merry Christmas
