education and public service programs that foster the safe, responsible use and ownership of firearms.

The National Rifle Association is group that is frowned upon by many uneducated, one sided Americans. Guns are not the problem, they can not think for themselves, however, people can. Irresponsible individuals are the reason guns have become such a taboo in the United States. Both hunting and shooting range are both enjoyable, and can be safe. The NRA helps to protect and educate Americans, please help us spread the word.

The National Rifle Association of America, or NRA, is an American non-profit (501(c)(4)) group which lists as its goals the protection of the Second Amendment of the United States Bill of Rights and the promotion of firearm ownership rights, marksmanship, firearm safety, and the protection of hunting and self-defense in the United States. It was established in 1871 in New York by William Conant Church and George Wood Wingate as the American Rifle Association; its first President was former Senator and famous Civil War Union Army General Ambrose Burnside.[2]

The NRA sponsors firearm safety training courses, as well as marksmanship events featuring shooting skills and sports. The NRA is sometimes said to be the single most powerful lobbying organization in the United States.[3] It bases its political activity on the principle that gun ownership is a civil liberty protected by the Second Amendment of the Bill of Rights, and claims to be the oldest continuously operating civil liberties organization in the United States. According to its website, the NRA has more than four million members.
