A Brief History of the NRA
Dismayed by the lack of marksmanship shown by their troops, Union veterans Col. William C. Church and Gen. George Wingate formed the National Rifle Association in 1871. The primary goal of the association would be to “promote and encourage rifle shooting on a scientific basis,” according to a magazine editorial written by Church.
After being granted a charter by the state of New York on November 17, 1871, the NRA was founded. Civil War Gen. Ambrose Burnside, who was also the former governor of Rhode Island and a U.S. senator, became the fledgling NRA’s first president.
An important facet of the NRA’s creation was the development of a practice ground. In 1872, with financial help from New York State, a site on Long Island, the Creed Farm, was purchased for the purpose of building a rifle range. Named Creedmoor, the range opened a year later, and it was there that the first annual matches were held.
The fraud never ends with the Trudeau Liberals.
Justin Trudeau recently tweeted an article with the following photo, in an effort to fear-monger Canadians into supporting his hated carbon tax scam.
Trudeau Govt. And State-Funded CBC Will Now Use Scarier Term: Climate Emergency
While it may be hard to believe, the Trudeau government and the CBC have concluded the language they currently use to describe climate change hasn’t been apocalyptic enough.
McKenna included the phrase in a recent Liberal motion before Parliament to declare Canada “is in a national climate emergency,” as did NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh.
It’s even worse than many people feared.
In their economic update, the Trudeau Liberals have announced a series of measures that add up to a $600 million media bailout.
Instead of letting the Canadian People pick and choose which media companies to support freely, the Trudeau Liberals are forcing you to bail out the media that they pick – using your tax dollars to do it.
The government has announced a series of ‘tax credits and incentives,’ which will cost $600 million over the next five years.
Justin Trudeau Buying the Media in time for 2019 Election
Michelle Rempel, MP: Free speech in Canada died today. Trudeau just announced a $600M initiative to give money to “journalists” who are “trusted sources”. Criteria to be set by people appointed by Trudeau. I don’t care how you vote. If you care about free speech, you should oppose and share this.
Maxime Bernier questioned which media companies would receive money following Bill Morneau’s fall economic update on Wednesday.—More…
GUN BAN? Trudeau Instructs Bill Blair To Examine “Full Ban” On Handguns & “Assault Weapons”
Vague wording raises fears that Trudeau is planning an all-out gun ban in Canada.
The mandate letter from Justin Trudeau giving his orders to so-called border security minister/organized crime reduction minister Bill Blair is raising new fears that the Liberals are planning to move towards an all-out gun ban in our country.
As noted by the Gun Blog, part of the mandate letter says Blair should “Support the Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness on the passage of Bill C-71, and work together on additional policy, regulations or legislation that could reduce crime involving the use of firearms and keep Canadians safe. You should lead an examination of a full ban on handguns and assault weapons in Canada, while not impeding the lawful use of firearms by Canadians.”
