The owner of a Marietta, Okla., jewelry store shot and killed one
of two armed men who attempted to rob his store. Two men had walked
into Norton's Jewelry Store as Ronnie Norton and his wife, Barbara,
were preparing to close for the evening. Norton saw the suspicious
men approaching and slipped his .32-cal. handgun into his belt.
They asked to see a $2,500 wedding set, and Norton went to the safe
to retrieve the rings with one man following him. When Barbara
Norton saw that man reach into his pocket, she ran for the door but
was stopped by the other man who pulled a gun on her. Norton turned
to see what was going on, and the man with him pulled a handgun.
When the gunman ordered the storeowner to the floor, Norton feared
he would be shot in the back of the head. He made his move, and a
struggle ensued during which his assailant was fatally wounded. His
attacker's accomplice fired several shots at Norton, who returned
fire with his own gun. The second gunman and two accomplices
waiting outside fled the scene. Though frightened, the Nortons were
uninjured. The storeowner said he and his wife plan to reopen the
store, but will never feel completely safe again. "We are always
going to be alert and ready for something to happen," he said.

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.
