33-year NYPD veteran, said: "I'm surprised at the naivete of the
criminal element down here. They don't realize that the average Joe
Schmo can have a gun."

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.
