Homeowner Defends Himself Against Home Invaders

A Virginia man was able to fight off two home intruders who struggled with him inside his home early Saturday morning.

Local police said the Newport News, Va., man heard a noise in his home and went to investigate. He found one intruder, but was quickly confronted by another, who began fighting with the resident.

The homeowner exchanged gunshots with the intruders, sending them fleeing and possibly saving his life. He was shot in the leg, and was transported to the hospital for non-life threatening injuries.


Time Running Short For Pennsylvania Preemption Legislation

Pennsylvania gun owners listen up: This is a critical week for your freedom.

This week is the final week of the 2016 legislative session for the Pennsylvania General Assembly. And with time winding down, it’s time for the legislature to pass Senate Bill 1330—important firearms preemption legislation. 

While the Senate successfully passed SB 1330 last week, the House of Representatives failed to take action on it. With only three days of session left, it is critical that you continue to contact your state legislators in support of SB 1330.

Gun owners across the Keystone State have waited long enough for this much-needed reform as they continue to be unduly burdened by local ordinances which violate the current state firearms preemption law. 

USE YOUR POWER!

Please take the time to contact your state legislators and ask them to support Senate Bill 1330. You can contact them by clicking here.
