A little known fact about JFK is that he was a member of the National Rifle Association. A Life Member in fact.
In a letter to the NRA dated March 20, 1961, he wrote:
“I am pleased to accept life membership in the National Rifle Association and extend to your organization every good wish for continued success. Through competitive matches and sports in coordination with the National board for the Promotion of Rifle Practice, the Association fills an important role in our national defense effort, and fosters in an active and meaningful fashion the spirit of the Minutemen”
So i guess he was smarter than the average Dumbocrat huh?
