Lt. Col. Oliver North is set to become the president of the National Rifle Association of America, a process the NRA Board of Directors initiated Monday, the group announced.

North will be retiring from his role at Fox News effective immediately. He will be taking over the position occupied by Pete Brownell, who did not seek a second term as NRA president.

"I am honored to have been selected by the NRA Board to soon serve as this great organization's President," North said in a news release.  “I appreciate the board initiating a process that affords me a few weeks to set my affairs in order, and I am eager to hit the ground running as the new NRA President.”

The NRA has a very shaky history with the Second Amendment.  It has only been the last ~30 years that the NRA has actually supported the Second Amendment.  Prior to 1988 the NRA supported gun control.  The NRA helped write the Federal Firearms Act of 1938 and the National Firearms Act of 1934.  For more than 100 years the NRA was the biggest gun control organization in the country.  It was the NRA's ardent support of gun control that created Gun Owners of America in 1975.

As an NRA Life Member, I truly hope Oli can keep the NRA on track and in support of the Second Amendment rather than infringing upon it.  Time will tell.

I've written about the National Firearms Act of 1934, where SCOTUS had no right to pass any laws regarding the 2nd, as stated in the Bill of Rights.
In fact, they claimed a sawed off shotgun had no place in the military, so they argued that citizens do not either have a right to possess.

I was just thinking about this yesterday, it would be great if that ruling could be challenged today because they outright lied, because there is adequate proof it was used during the civil war.

That aside, there is a legal workaround, Mossberg has a Shockwave with a 14" barrel, and it's Federally legal.

I agree with you about the NFA and the Supreme Court ruling in United States v. Miller, 307 U.S. 174 (1939).  It is not the first time that particular court would rule against the US Constitution.  From 1937 to 1944 the Supreme Court was in FDR's pocket, having appointed 8 of the 9 justices.  A great many atrocities were committed by the federal government under FDR and sanctioned by his Supreme Court during this period.

I have been using a Mossberg Model 500 with an 18.5" rifled barrel and extended tube magazine as my "camp gun" for the last 27 years.  With a 12-guage I prefer to hold it firmly in my shoulder for accuracy.  I do not care for the handheld stock they have on the Mossberg in your image.  The recoil is too great to keep the weapon on target after it has been fired with a handheld stock.

My Mossberg has been very reliable, I have no complaints whatsoever, but it has also taken a beating over the years.  I'm considering replacing it with the Akdal MKA 1919.

Primarily because magazines are easier and faster to reload than a tube magazine, it is lighter, the synthetic stock is more durable than wood, and also I get the added bonus of watching the heads all the liberal hoplophobes explode.   :thumbup:

If I'm forced to take down a brown bear or moose in self-defense, I don't want to be dicking around with pepper spray or small caliber firearm that will just piss them off.  I want to be as certain as possible that I am able to take them down quickly, and a 10-round magazine loaded with .65 caliber Brenneke sabot slugs helps to give me that assurance.

Same here, I have the 500 as well, though my shoulder isn't what it used to be and firing it and aiming usually takes a toll for several days and considering one doesn't always have a chance to aim, I practice from the hip fire. I have the collapsable stock and really don't mind the recoil while holding it, at least I can still use my right arm the next day. :laugh:

The left may hate North more  than they hate Trump. This could be a lot of fun.
