From the below link, "So it should come as no surprise that that Communist Party USA would support Barack Obama and his plans to ban assault weapons and place more restrictions on gun owners.
The Communist People’s World reported, via the New American:

In the wake of the Newtown massacre, polls show the great majority of Americans are now insisting that the ability to live free from the fear or threat of gun violence is a fundamental democratic right – one that far supercedes any so-called personal gun rights allegedly contained in the Second Amendment.

In fact, the right-wing extremists opposing all efforts to curb gun violence are the same forces that rallied behind Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, hoping to undermine every other democratic right as well as the living standards of workers and ordinary Americans. It is for that reason, as well as the need to protect public safety, that the same coalition of labor and its allies that worked so hard and effectively to re-elect President Barack Obama must now go all-out to back his common sense proposals for gun law reform.

As Obama has charged, the extremists recklessly “gin up fear” that the government is coming to take away hunting rifles and personal weapons owned for legitimate self-defense. Led by the hate-mongering leadership of the National Rifle Association, they use a totally fraudulent and only very recent interpretation of the Second Amendment which they falsely claim as necessary for protecting every other freedom contained in the Bill of Rights…"

A very disturbing video. Can it happen here?

YdraigGoch, >>And the KKK aplauds the NRA's take on gun control. So your point is????<<

***
If your unsuported claim is true, why did the NRA provide a charter, weapons training and rifles to a former Marine who tried to open a NAACP chapter in Monroe County North Carolina in 1958?

Are trying to make a point that doesn't exist?

From the link, "The story of Monroe is one that the elites don’t want well known. They are no longer just trying to strip Blacks and other minority groups of their rights. They are now trying to subjugate everyone who isn’t part of their elitist group. They can only do that when they totally disarm the people they want to rule.

As Monroe demonstrates, Blacks should be among the strongest supporters of the Second Amendment. The Second Amendment puts teeth in the rest of the Constitution. It guarantees personal freedom far better than any paternalistic government program. In Monroe, as in much of the country, Blacks couldn’t look to the government for protection. The Klan controlled the government there. Their only defense was self-defense. The men in the local NRA showed that they were up to the task of defending themselves and their families. They didn’t need some elitist demigod to protect their rights."

The first thing totalitarian regimes around the world do when they get power is to disarm the populace.
