Hugh Wade saw a man try to rob a pair of young women on a
Detroit street and gave chase in his car as the crook took flight.
When the criminal ran up a narrow alley, Wade leaped from his car,
drew his licensed pistol and fired two warning shots, stopping the
man's flight. Wade held the would-be robber for police, who
recommended him for a citation. He had won one such award in 1972
for rescuing an old woman from a purse- snatcher.
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.
