New York Post photographer Joe De Maria responded to a
distraught Italian woman tourist's cries and gave chase to a mugger
in New York's Chinatown. When the cornered bandit tried to bluff De
Maria with a bunched-up jacket, the photographer drew his licensed
revolver and yelled, "Don't even think about it." The robber
dropped the pretense with his coat while De Maria used a portable
radio to contact police, who charged the man with robbery.
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.
