Jim Mapes scored an important victory in the battle for gun rights, the Second Amendment, and increased his bank account by $25,000 at the same time.
The city of Thornton, Colorado, paid Mapes that mount to settle a lawsuit over a wrongful arrest for carrying a licensed gun.
Police arrested Mapes, confiscated his gun and held him for four hours on July 29, 2012, even though he had violated no law. The arrest came after Mapes decided to test his constitutional rights by openly wearing his Glock automatic pistol to the movies a week after the Aurora theater massacre. Thornton, like Aurora, is a Denver suburb.
