Linda Patterson was walking to her car in the parking lot of
a Searcy, Ark., store a few days before Christmas when she saw a 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.
