Sherry Lewis was sleeping soundly on her living room couch when she
was suddenly awakened by three men who had entered her home. The
intruders attacked Lewis, beating her with a pool cue. Lewis'
companion, Jeffrey Shaw, tried to help her fend off the attackers,
but they began assaulting him, as well, beating him and stabbing him
once in the side. The men then forced Lewis' children into separate
bedrooms and began ransacking the house. Shaw was then able to get a
.22-cal. rifle from his room and shoot all three men, who managed to
flee in a waiting car. Deputies soon found the suspects in a nearby
home, all three suffering from gunshot wounds. The driver, Lisa
Watson, was also present and had sustained a superficial wound.
Authorities expected to file charges once the suspects were released
from the hospital. As for Jeffrey Shaw, police described his actions
as a clear-cut case of self defense. "This individual was protecting
himself, his family and his property at the time," said Grant County
Sheriff's Detective Sgt. Kevin Pauley.

It’s important to celebrate that law-abiding Americans are now closer than they have been in nearly half a century to being able to exercise their firearms freedom in our nation’s capital. That is real progress.
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.
