"They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety." - Benjamin Franklin

Did you know ? ? ? ... Political anti-gun sentiment can be tracked back to 1892 in New is all covered in the NRA history.

A brief history of the National Rifle Association:

The National Rifle Association was ini- tiated on November 17, 1871 after be- ing granted a charter by the state of New York.

Two union veterans of the civil war, Colonel William C. Church and General George Wingate, formed the organization for the purpose to promote and encourage rifle shooting on a scientific basis”.  They had a common concern over the poor marksmanship of the un- ion troops as compared to the confederates.

Their goal was to promote marksmanship for future armed service needs.

The new organization created a shooting range for practice which opened in 1873 at the Creed farm in Long Island, New York.  The range, named Creedmoor, was used for annual competitions until 1892.  It is an interesting part of history that political opposition to the promotion of marksmanship in New York forced the NRA to find a new home for its range”.  The range was moved to Sea Girt, New Jersey in 1892.

In 1903, NRA secretary Albert S. Jones initiated rifle clubs at all major colleges and military academies to promote the shooting sports among Americas youth.  By 1906 more than 200 participants competed at the Sea Girt range.  Today, more than 1 million youth are involved in shooting sports events.  The events are sponsored by groups such as 4-H, Boy Scouts, American Legion and others.

The NRA has grown into a substantial organization with considerable political capital that helps to assure that government officials protect our second amendment rights.  The organization continues to develop and expand training, education, and marksmanship.  The NRA is recognized as the premier organization in the world for firearms education.  There are now over 55,000 certified NRA instructors who train about 750,000-gun owners every year.

The NRA is truly an American success story that continues to defend our constitutional rights to own and bear arms.
