Is that a fact?
We're being very factual here.
In 1968 Robert Kennedy accused the NRA of having never supported gun legislation. The NRA answered that accusation by publishing an article in their American Rifleman magazine outlining some of the legislation they supported, one of those being The National Firearms Act of 1934.

"The NRA supported The National Firearms Act of 1934 which taxes and requires registration of such firearms as machine guns, sawed-off rifles and sawed-off shotguns."
—American Rifleman, March 1968

"The NRA supported The Federal Firearms Act of 1938, which regulates interstate and foreign commerce in firearms and pistol or revolver ammunition."
—American Rifleman, March 1968

The Gun Control Act of '68 pretty much mirrored the '38 Hitler gun control act.

All I'm attempting to do here is have a close (factual) look at the NRA from it's beginnings to present day in historic order. I think it will be interesting as well as educational for those who read this thread to learn more about the NRA and what they do.

So far, it's going very well, we've covered the first nearly 100 years of the NRA's existance from 1871 to 1968 and what they've accomplished in that period.

The only resistance to this idea so far has come from those who are already on record saying they're supporters of the NRA, so unless there's something we may learn along the way that they feel uncomfortable with, they should be pleased in our newly found interest of this "open and public" organization and self proclaimed protecter of our Constitution.

However, so far, not one has pointed to any of this discussion as being unfactual concerning the history of the NRA.

Once again, I invite any corrections to that which has thus far been deemed agreeably accurate.

I'm sure they did support the taxing of machine guns and other destructive devices, as they were a sporting group, and machine guns aren't sporting rifles. However they like the rest of us have discovered that it was a foot in the door.
Look up their stance on the modern sporting rifles you hate so vehemently.

I will categorically agree with that comment.

The NRA did in fact support the taxation of those weaponries in the 1934 National Firearms Act. The NRA also supported the 1968 Gun Control Act as well, did they not?

As far as the NRA's modern day stance, we'll get to "now", later. We are going to follow the NRA thru history and see how they got to "now", first.

They supported the part of the act that restricted criminals and the mentally ill from purchasing firearms. They specifically didn't support the restriction on interstate trade or the formation of arms dealers license. I agree with keeping firearms and the mentally ill from buying guns, i think there should be a restriction on their IDs, and then you could just require that when a firearm is sold, a picture or photocopy of the ID is taken and everyone's ass is covered. No ID, no sale.

The 1968 Gun Control act prohibited the interstate shipment of pistols and revolvers to individuals, but it specifically exempted rifles and shotguns from any regulations.

This was a response by Congress to the recent assassinations of JFK, RFK, and MLK all during that decade ... is this correct?

The NRA supported -or- opposed this?

Since MLK and JFL were shot with rifles, that's a bassackwards reaction, but no the NRA wasn't in favor of dealers licensing, the provision that stopped shipping to individuals. Only the part about sales restrictions to felons and the mentally ill.

Reaction?

Isn't it true that LBJ proposed new gun control measures every year he was President and it was the days immediately following the June 5th RFK assassination that the 1968 Gun Control Act enjoyed over 80% support in the polls?

Are you privvy to say whether or not that is fact?

Yeah, that all sounds good, but, if memory serves me correctly, RFK was shot with a handgun, in a hotel kitchen, in the middle of a crowd. Secret Service couldn't even stop it. I don't know if anybody could, given the political atmosphere of those times. That kind of stuff will still happen until, more people with CCLs, stand up and fight back. Take out these no-good low lifes and bring sanity back to the streets.
