The NRA's Sorry Tale ...

President Obama advocating for more stringent gun control. WSJ's Jason Bellini reports. – AOL/WSJ

Dominant Social Theme: NRA has fought hard for gun freedom in the USA.

Free-Market Analysis: This video provides us with a concise history of the National Rifle Association, the most powerful gun lobby of them all in the US. Actually, one could say it is a concise history of the gathering failure of this organization, as it shows clearly how US Second Amendment rights have been reduced over time.

The Second Amendment states clearly that the right to bear arms shall not be abridged. 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.

In its 141st year, the NRA has risen to become one of America's most powerful lobby groups. Now the NRA is responding to a massacre that has President Obama advocating for more stringent gun control. WSJ's Jason Bellini reports. – AOL/WSJ

Dominant Social Theme: NRA has fought hard for gun freedom in the USA.

Free-Market Analysis: This video provides us with a concise history of the National Rifle Association, the most powerful gun lobby of them all in the US. Actually, one could say it is a concise history of the gathering failure of this organization, as it shows clearly how US Second Amendment rights have been reduced over time.

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. 

...The NRA has always been a mainstream organization with a reach that climbs right to the top of the US establishment. But in fact it is the lack of success that the NRA has had in keeping gun control laws off the books that has disturbed many supporters and led to the success of at least two other organizations. Here's one example – apparently from a dissatisfied former backer – posted ... at the DailyPaul.com:

"Yes, the NRA is a FRAUD ! ... Sun, 04/12/2009 – 22:18 ... With over 30,000 gun laws on the books ... the NRA has successfully reversed 2 (partially) pieces of gun legislation. I would give you the batting average of that ratio, but my calculator only goes to the 6th negative decimal. Having a membership of 3.5 MILLION, 550 employees, hundreds of thousands of volunteers and an annual budget of over $120 MILLION...based on their track record...I CALL THAT FRAUD! ... The NRA not only compromises, but they help write almost every piece of anti-gun legislation, just to generate donations. Gun Owners of America and Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership are the only way to go."

The NRA recently called for a police officer in every school to fight gun violence. Rather than advocate an armed citizenry or removal of "gun free" zones around schools, the NRA opted to lobby for an expansion of the military/civil police state, which is already alarmingly large.

This is typical of the perspective of this dysfunctional organization. It surely does not seem to be what it purports to be and those in the US who want to preserve gun rights are probably looking to the wrong advocate if they put their trust in the NRA.

Here's the concise video of the NRA's history. It leaves out a lot but what is included provides us with an instructional – and sorry – tale.
