7 Uncovered Quotes That Show How Far off the Rails the NRA Has Gone

One of the potential disconnects that some supporters of the NRA may be experiencing is that, to me, it has changed a lot and you could even say it has been radicalized to the point that some argue, (as per San Francisco) it is a terrorist organization, especially in light of the current mass shootings and other issues that are being exacerbated by the rhetoric the NRA uses.

This is an older article with book excerpts that reveal that early NRA leaders and proponents were not necessarily advocates of lax gun laws and restrictions, etc. In fact, they actually demonstrate insight into the problems about gun ownership, responsibility and even the need for people have weapons in these times. They don't seem to be gun nuts, but rather, they are sensible and responsible in their approach.

The 143-year-old National Rifle Association has not always been like today's NRA, fighting every gun control law as if the essence of American freedom depends on every citizen owning a gun. What follows are a series of shocking quotes taken from various academic histories of the NRA by top officials within the organization supporting reasonable gun control laws.
