The NRA's Sorry Tale ...

• http://www.thedailybell.com, by Staff Report
 The Second Amendment states clearly that the right to bear arms shall not be infringed. You wouldn't know that from the US government's success in abridging those "unabridgable rights." Or the NRA's unfortunate culpability in the process.

The NRA was founded by victorious Civil War soldiers, supposedly to help troops with shooting skills. But given that the NRA has links to the US military – or had them initially – one wonders if the NRA is truly as independent as it pretends to be.

In an article entitled, "NRA Makes a Terrible Deal," we wrote the following:

The answer to the question regarding the NRA may be seen in its background and evolution as America's leading gun-rights organization. Not only is it the nation's largest such organization with some four million members claimed. It also the oldest, being founded after the Civil War by two well known New Yorkers, one of whom was the publisher of the New York Sun.
