After a St. Louis, Mo., householder stopped four youths from
beating up a passerby, the youths returned half an hour later for
revenge. Charles Roy looked out the window of his McPherson Ave.
home just in time to see one of the four raise a shotgun and fire
two blasts at his house. Roy returned fire with a pistol, wounding
one and driving the others away.
TELL YOUR MEMBERS OF CONGRESS TO OPPOSE “UNIVERSAL” BACKGROUND CHECK BILLS
Recently two bills were introduced in Congress to impose so-called "universal" background checks. The bills,H.R. 8andS. 42, are being misleadingly described as simply requiring background checks on all sales of firearms, but this is just a small part of what these overbroad pieces of legislation would do.
Established in 1975, the Institute for Legislative Action (ILA) is the "lobbying" arm of the National Rifle Association of America. ILA is responsible for preserving the right of all law-abiding individuals in the legislative, political, and legal arenas, to purchase, possess and use firearms for legitimate purposes as guaranteed by the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
