This Man Lost Everything When He Was Sent to Prison Despite Not Breaking Any Laws
Brian Aitken is a normal, law abiding citizen; at the time of his arrest he still had student loans, a wife and a young child.

Everything changed when he was arrested and sent to serve time for something which was actually legal.

While he was moving from Colorado to New Jersey, Brian was pulled over and had his vehicle searched despite not being suspected of a crime. In the car he had two locked, unloaded and legally purchased firearms. The law specifically outlines an exemption clause which allows the transportation of legally owned firearms while in the process of moving. During the trail, the jury even asked the judge 3 times if they could rule based on this law but the requests were denied!

Brian was sentenced to 7 years for doing something that was legal, he was not breaking the law, he fell victim to a judge applying the rules how he saw fit. Thankfully, the governor of New Jersey released Brian early, but the NJ supreme court refuses to hear his case and his status as a convicted felon means he cannot see his son.

He is now raising money for a book through Indiegogo which he well then use the proceeds of to take his case to the US Supreme Court. No matter what side you are on in the gun control debate, this is a case of severe injustice.
