Tied up and robbed several months earlier, a 70-year-old
Sacramento, Calif., woman decided she would be ready and purchased a
handgun. When two men--apparently the same robbers--kicked in the
door and pulled the telephone wires from the wall, the woman got her
gun and started shooting. The men fled, but one collapsed in the
driveway with a mortal wound. Police found masks, latex gloves, a
police scanner and a gun on the dead man.
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.
