Avast Ye, Pirates!

Congressman discusses a bill to help Americans ward off pirates. Frank LoBiondo (R-N.J.) is leading the charge against pirates who prey upon U.S. vessels on the high seas-because as it stands, the laws leave our citizens vulnerable to these attacks. LoBiondo's bill will not only give mariners the right to defend themselves against pirate attacks, it will also shield them from any liability should the need arise for them to arm and defend themselves. Earlier today, Congressman LoBiondo told Ginny Simone that his "common-sense legislation" has already passed out of committee with bipartisan support.
