well, well, well: The NRA once supported & helped write federal gun control laws

The NRA once supported gun control
It may seem hard to believe, but for decades the organization helped write federal laws restricting gun use

In the early 1920s, the National Revolver Association—the NRA’s handgun training counterpart—proposed model legislation for states that included requiring a permit to carry a concealed weapon, adding five years to a prison sentence if a gun was used in a crime, and banning non-citizens from buying a handgun. They also proposed that gun dealers turn over sales records to police and created a one-day waiting period between buying a gun and getting it—two provisions that the NRA opposes today.
