On March 10, 2013, North Liberty Iowa Police Department officers were dispatched to a 911 domestic violence call. The caller heard screaming and witnessed a male jumping on a woman’s car and yelling. It was not their first call to this address.

Approaching the mobile home, officers located a woman, crying, with obvious signs of being assaulted. She was in the process of moving out when her boyfriend attacked. She informed the officers that her boyfriend had planned to remove his pistol from the trailer earlier in the day. He should be alone in the trailer.

Officers made their way up a ramp leading to the front door. There was little room to maneuver. Soon they made contact.

Classic High Standard 9-shot .22 revolvers donated to the NRA

3 .22 colored revolvers from High Standard

Fairfax, Virginia - It's never easy to make noise in the firearm industry. No matter how innovative your product may be, you need something to catch the consumer's eye. In the case of High Standard Manufacturing, they did so with color.

"They started with a lightweight aluminum frame," started NRA Museums Senior Curator Doug Wicklund. "But they wanted to make it different. So instead of coloring it black or bluish like every other gun, they decided to produce their .22 9-shot revolver in red, blue and also gold."

When you share too much your privacy and personal information is no longer your own

Fairfax, Virginia - By now we’re all familiar with the infamous Nigerian Email scam; an unjustly deposed prince or official is in fear for their life and fleeing for the U.S. with $20,000,000 in tow. If you can front the prince (or official) a few thousand dollars then we’ll be be happy to send 10% of the treasure your way.

All such communications should be chalked up to the “if it sounds too good to be true it probably isn’t” category.

But the cyber cons don’t stop there. In the days where social media has all but takes over our monitors, it’s become all to clear that sharing every little aspect of your life comes with potential consequences. Enter NRA’s Refuse to be a Victim program.

Don't get looking for a quick buck when the con artists call

NRA's Refuse to be a Victim program Fairfax, Virginia - During the first 6 months of 2014, the Federal Trade Commission received more than 12,000 complaints about scams involving people impersonating IRS agents. That's 36 times more complaints than the same period in 2013 received! Be very wary of the following scams:

  • Someone calls or emails saying they're from the IRS and you owe money. They say if you don't pay immediately, a warrant could be issued for your arrest.
  • Sometimes they recite personal information such as the last 4 digits of your Social Security number to sound credible. The number on the caller ID might even look legitimate or imitate the IRS toll-free number or the email address might be similar to actual IRS email addresses
  • Someone promises you a big refund if you let them prepare your taxes. People generally prey on people who do not have a filing requirement, such as low-income individuals or the elderly. They also target non-English speaking individuals. They charge big money for bad advice or worse yet, file the return and have the refund deposited into their account.
