Evidently, Beth Vannatta either failed her history classes or has forgotten what she learned.
The Klu Klux Klan is not a product of the U.S. Congress, nor is it a product of the National Rifle Association. It is a product of the Democrat Party, and was founded on December 24, 1865, by Democrats.
The NRA, which Beth falsely accused of forming the KKK wasn't formed until 1871 and was initially focused on teaching marksmanship and proper firearms handling. It is the oldest Civil Rights Organization in America.
The NRA helped to arm and train African Americans to be able to defend themselves from attacks by the KKK. The most prominent case being in 1960 in Monroe, NC where the local National Association for the Advancement of Colored People head Robert Williams also chartered an NRA Rifle Club that successfully defended an assault on one of their leader's homes by the KKK without casualties. I've always thought this is why Democrats are so hateful when it comes to the NRA.
During WWII, the NRA donated use of its ranges to the military for firearms training, reloaded ammunition for those guarding War Plants and helped arm the British People to fight the Nazi's by donating 7,000 firearms due to them being disarmed by gun control laws after WWI.
The NRA has always supported basic Human, Civil and Constitutional Rights including the Right enumerated by the 2nd Amendment. That is totally counter to the Democrat Ctrl-Left Liberal ideal that all good Subjects of "The Government" should be disarmed.
That Ctrl-Left Liberal Ideal is currently on full display in Venezuela where "The Government" is armed and well fed while "The Subjects" are starving and suffering under the boot of the Ctrl-Left Government.
Democrats keep trying to revise and erase their own shameful history in an attempt to get people to ignore that history.
Those who ignore history are doomed to repeat it.
The American People should not ignore the history that led to the enslavement of so many people by the Democrat Slave Masters.
