Susan Galewick was home alone when she observed a man
unfastening a window screen at her Orange, Calif., residence. She
quickly called 911, then grabbed her husband's pistol just as the
intruder appeared at the bedroom door. The 24-year-old woman
pointed the gun at him, and he pleaded with her not to shoot him
before fleeing. The man, who had a lengthy criminal record, was
shortly arrested. "I want other women to know at least a gun is
good protection," Galewick told the press.
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.
