When his 74-year-old neighbor phoned for help one evening,
saying someone was pounding on her front door, a Topeka, Kans.,
householder loaded his rifle and went to the rescue. The neighbor
intervened and held the prowler at gunpoint after he found him
kicking out a basement window. "He offered me all the money he had
and begged and pleaded at me not to call the police," the man said.
"I'm very protective of my neighbors."
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.
