The National Rifle Association (or NRA) is a human rights advocacy group which promotes the right to bear arms as well as promoting interest in shooting sports. It runs training classes in gun use and safety, and publishes magazines of interest to gun owners. It is also dedicated to protecting Americans' Second Amendment rights.

The NRA was founded after the American Civil War by former Union soldiers seeking to improve the shooting skills of the population at large. One of the biggest enemies of NRA is the Ku Klux Klan.[1]


The NRA is non-partisan and has endorsed both Republicans and Democrats. It most often endorses Republicans, as that party is more prone to fielding candidates receptive to Second Amendment rights.

In 2004 the NRA successfully opposed renewal of the federal assault weapons ban of 1994, which banned many features of certain semiautomatic rifles and certain types of removable magazines, against a campaign to make the ban permanent and expand it.[2] The ban expired at midnight, September 13, 2004.

The NRA owns and operates the National Firearms Museum in Fairfax, Virginia, which is free to the public.

Incremental Gun-Grabbing of the Nanny State

Liberals and socialists support "common sense" measures - a "good first step" of the Nanny State. To a citizen-prepper-patriot and to the Bill of Rights, this is "death by a thousand paper cuts".

This Second Amendment Foundation video is the formal response to Hollywood's Demand a Plan gun-grabbing propaganda video. The video shows one of the main differences between liberal gun control Nanny states (Blue states) and conservative and/or libertarian Second Amendment-supporting "free states" (Red states). This video shows why we vote with our feet:
