Cecil and Jerry Reynolds were fed up with the repeated robberies of
their tire store. So, during the most recent attempt, Jerry "did
what the law allows him to do," Sheriff Al Cannon, Jr., said. The
Reynolds, who live about SO yds, from their business, were able to
install an intercom similar to a baby monitor at their store. At
about 4 a.m., they were awakened by the sound of breaking glass.
Jerry investigated, but found nothing and returned home. Minutes

grabbed his 12-ga. shotgun and returned to the store, where he saw
someone enter a black car. According to sheriff's officials, Jerry
ordered the suspect to get out of the car, but he refused and
instead gunned the engine and hit Jerry, who fired buckshot into the
front windshield. The suspect, upon being struck, swerved and
crashed. The driver was taken to a hospital where he was listed in

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.
