I want slavery? It was the NRA who wanted the blacks of the South to be able to own guns to defend themselves from Democrat Night Riders way back when!!!!.
The National Rifle Association was "founded by religious leaders who wanted to protect freed slaves from the Ku Klux Klan."
Harry Alford on Friday, February 22nd, 2013 in a news conference
"I want to thank the Lord for our Constitution. I also want to thank the NRA for its legacy. The National Rifle Association was started, founded by religious leaders who wanted to protect freed slaves from the Ku Klux Klan."
Didn't read the article, did you? Sad, very sad, because if you had you would realize was that the NRA was big on CIVIL RIGHTS to include Second Amendment rights for ALL Americans regardless of color!<quoted text>
NRA was not founded by religious leaders who wanted to protect freed slaves from the KKK.
There is no NRA literature that sprout such nonsense.
NRA was founded by William Conant Church, a journalist and soldier and George Wood Wingate, a lawyer and an author of military subjects.
Its first president was the Union General Ambrose Burnside. General Burnside believed that the poor marksmanship of the union soldiers was due to inadequate training in the use of guns.
Mr. Finch is a racist bigot!!!
The NRA has a history of supporting the Civil Rights Movement.
KKK; While African Americans were being terrorized by the Ku Klux Klan, where the Klan were sometimes aided by local law enforcement, the NRA setup charters to help train local African American communities to be able protect themselves. The most prominent case being in 1960 in Monroe, N.C. where the local National Association for the Advancement of Colored People head Robert Williams also chartered an NRA Rifle Club that successully defended an assault on one of their leader's homes by the KKK without casualties.
