Ricardo Espinoza, 20, was sleeping in the back of a Tucson,
Ariz., dry-cleaning store and awoke to find two burglars making off
with clothing through a hole in the roof. First the duo asked
Espinoza to unlock a door, then let the employee go off alone for
the key. Instead Espinoza returned with a hunting rifle, capturing
one robber for police, who charged the individual with first-degree
burglary and theft.
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.
