Sarah Nahmens and her mother often discuss personal safety and keep
a .32-caliber revolver in their home. "We've always talked about
defending yourself and how important that is," Nahmens said. Police
say her planning paid off when two men began forcing her door open.
Nahmens quickly retrieved her gun and pointed it at the door as it
flew open. "It kind of kicked in and I thought, 'OK, I've got to
make sure that I'm safe' ... It was either going to be me or them
and it couldn't be me," she explained. Nahmens fired two shots and
the uninjured suspects fled. "I commend her for protecting herself,"
said police Capt. Patrick Whitney. Nahmens said the incident has
raised awareness in her normally quiet neighborhood. Several women
have expressed interest in a "girls day" at the shooting range to
practice and learn more about firearms.

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.
