Book Review:
“The Man Who Hated Work and Loved Labor — The Life and Times of Tony Mazzocchi” This is a fascinating book about a labor leader who has had tremendous influence on our lives, but whose name is not even known by millions of Americans. Please read my review.



Armed NRA Member Halts Knife Attack On Georgia Woman

A North Carolina man, NRA Life Member Myron Petro, used his handgun to save the life of a Georgia sandwich shop night manager when she was attacked with a knife by her former boyfriend before startled store patrons Feb. 21.

A visibly angry 27-year-old Al Mumford of Anniston, Ala., brandished a knife as he entered Schlotzsky's Deli in Lawrenceville and began stabbing and slashing Shirondah McMurray, 24. As patrons Petro and Dennis Benton came to Ms. McMurray's defense, Mumford fled the store.

Petro, 37, rushed out to his car, got his revolver from the locked glove box, loaded it, and returned to the store as Mumford came back inside with a second, larger knife, according to Gwinnett County police Sgt. Dan Branch.

Benton was cut on the hand when Mumford resumed his attack on the woman. But Petro, now armed, confronted Mumford and demanded that he end the attack. Mumford refused and advanced on Petro, who then fatally shot him.

Seriously wounded, Ms. McMurray underwent eight to nine hours of surgery for wounds to the face, neck and upper torso, Sgt. Branch reports. "What we're looking at here is two individuals who placed themselves at a very great risk to save this woman, and, in fact, probably saved her life," the officer told United Press International.
