Here is an old photo, from the Roosevelt administration. The Internet seems to indicate that the National Rifle Association may have co-opted the photo for their purposes. I’m not sure. It could be that somebody has jumped to the wrong conclusion. But what the hell! Anything to make a liberal’s head to explode. The tattoo and photo have nothing to do with the NRA or guns.
Wikipedia, the lazy man’s not quite right reference source, describes the NRA as follows: The National Recovery Administration (NRA) was a prime New Deal agency established by U.S. president Franklin D. Roosevelt (FDR) in 1933. The goal was to eliminate “cut-throat competition” by bringing industry, labor, and government together to create codes of “fair practices” and set prices. The NRA was created by the National Industrial Recovery Act (NIRA) and allowed industries to get together and write “codes of fair competition.”
If you get right down to it Roosevelt’s NRA was far more destructive than the National Rifle Association. Typical liberal, good intentions, bad results.
