"I don't like to feel like a victim," said Rachel Jackson of
Red Springs, North Carolina, after successfully running off an
attacker who broke into her home. Jackson, whose spina bifida
confines her to a wheel- chair, sprayed the man with tear gas.
Then, while the man went to grab money from her purse, she pulled a
.25-cal. pistol and fired four shots. After the man was later caught
seeking treatment at a hospital, it was learned that he previously
had been convicted of robbery, kidnapping and attemped rape. "God
gave me the composure I needed to knock the panic and do what I
needed to do," Jackson said later.

The National Rifle Association Institute for Legislative Action applauds the Texas Senate today for passing Senate Bill 16, legislation that substantially reduces License To Carry fees in the Lone Star state.
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.
