A man apparently intent on robbing the same Southington,
Conn., convenience store twice in one week entered the store wearing
a bag over his head. He approached the manager, whose back was
turned, and pulled a knife. When the knife-wielding man held the
knife over the manager's head in a threatening manner, the manager
responded by pulling a handgun and firing at his adversary. The
would-be robber, suspected by police in a number of other hold-ups,
fled the store empty-handed.
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.
