James Dittrich endured a horrifying attack one night in East Orange, NJ. Two thugs followed him home and then forced him into his apartment at gunpoint. Once inside, they robbed him and sexually assaulted his fiancé, Meredith Duffy. The two were helpless against the armed intruders, as they were staunch anti-gun advocates and had no firearms in their home.

Dittrich was forced to watch as Duffy was raped and she in turn was made to bear witness to her fiancé being brutally beaten. Eventually, Dittrich was able to wrestle with the attackers long enough for Duffy to dial 911, but the criminals fled the scene and were long gone before police arrived.

Dittrich and Duffy are lucky to have escaped the horrific ordeal with their lives. They have since moved back to their hometown in Ohio, but are constantly looking over their shoulders. The men who vandalized their property and caused them bodily injury on that fateful night are still at large.

Many things have changed in the couple’s life since they were attacked, such as their stance on owning a gun. They are now avid supporters of the rights of law-abiding individuals to have firearms. They won’t allow the same thing to happen to them twice.
