Awakened at 3 a.m. by the sound of his front door crashing
in, Coconut Grove, Fla., carpenter Fred Sabellichi grabbed his rifle
and confronted a burglar heading toward the front door with his TV.
When the robber turned, Sabellichi fired and hit the intruder. The
man dropped the set and fled, but collapsed three blocks away. No
charges were filed against Sabellichi.
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.
