When a masked, gun-wielding man entered a Bryan, Texas, grocery store and demanded money, the owner's first thought was that it was a practical joke. But as the grocer realized the gunman was serious, he leveled his .30-30 rifle at the would-be robber. The man fled with the grocer's wife on his heels. Within 15 minutes, a swarm of police officers located and arrested a suspect matching the description of the desperate man.

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.
