Detroit CPL Class Instructor Organizes Benefit For Local Heroine
Rick Ector, a National Rifle Association (NRA) Credentialed Firearms and Personal Protection Trainer based in Detroit Michigan, is organizing a benefit fundraiser for a local heroine.
The beneficiary - Alaina - was recently identified by a metro-Detroit area TV station as a local woman who was assaulted during a violent carjacking attempt by two dangerous predators. The report stated that her vehicle was senselessly riddled by bullets from an AK-47 rifle until she returned fire with her legally concealed and carried handgun. After shooting back at her assailants, the bad guys quickly left the scene.
In the aftermath of the gunfight, Alaina suffered significant damage to her arm. In fact, the damage was so great that it is not known if she will ever recover full use of her limb. As a consequence of the shooting, she can no longer work as a waitress which was her primary means of supporting herself and her three small children.
Alaina credits having her firearm with her with not only saving her life but the lives of two other people who were also present in her vehicle at the time of the unprovoked attack:
During this current week - September 11th through September 16th - Biggby Coffee of Southfield, MI is donating a portion of the proceeds from the sale of full priced "grande/specialty"
Ector explains his rationale for organizing this fundraiser as the following, "When I first heard the story, I immediately knew that I wanted to do something to help. Fortunately, I was able to discover fairly quickly a means of doing just that with the help from the great people at Biggby Coffee of Southfield. Hopefully, many others in the community will feel as compassionate as I do and lend this event their assistance."
