America's First Freedom - August 2015 - 39

"This shouldn't have happened,"
said Chuck Berwick, owner of Banger's
Sport Shop. "The permitting system
is atrocious. In our statute, it's written
in black and white that a police
department has 30 days to process the
paperwork, and very, very seldom do
we see a permit that's actually issued in
less than 30 days from the time it was
applied for.
"The police chief being in the
position that he's in should know the
law. Ignorance is absolutely no excuse."
The fact that Bowne was left to fend
for herself isn't lost on many who cared
about her.
"My friend didn't have to die this way,"
one of her co-workers at White Horse Pike
salon told me the week after Bowne
was murdered. "He killed her like an
animal, and I will never rest knowing that
that's the way my friend's life was ended
because she couldn't protect herself.
And knowing that it could have been
prevented makes it all that much more
painful ... and hard to digest."
Many of Bowne's friends knew of her

N A T I O N A L

problems with her ex. They also knew she
had gone to great lengths to try to keep
herself safe. And they are furious that the
state not only let her down, but also kept
her from being able to protect herself.
"She went to the police, she filed
numerous reports, every time there
was an incident she logged it with the
prosecutor, with the Berlin police," said

She was the prisoner. My friend might
be standing right here today had they
arrested him at least on that."
Sandy Muldoon, nra-certified pistol
instructor, pointed out the fallacy of
believing that the best defense is taking
out a restraining order against someone
bent on violence. Yet restrictive gun laws
left that as Bowne's only real solution.

"HE KILLED HER LIKE AN ANIMAL, AND I WILL
NEVER REST KNOWING THAT THAT'S THE WAY
MY FRIEND'S LIFE WAS ENDED BECAUSE SHE
COULDN'T PROTECT HERSELF. AND KNOWING
THAT IT COULD HAVE BEEN PREVENTED
MAKES IT ALL THAT MUCH MORE PAINFUL
... AND HARD TO DIGEST."
close friend and co-worker Colette
Marino-Quinones. "He actually had a
warrant out on him for an infraction
against that restraining order. He walked
around freely for that whole month.

"If somebody is going with an
intention to kill somebody, are they
worried about violating a restraining
order?" Muldoon asked. "It's not
