The Rivalry between Gun Groups about Databases

by Rachel Baker on August 24, 2013

Here’s two articles over at buzzfeed about the NRA creating a national database of gunowners and and the NAGR’s response to it.

The National Rifle Association has rallied gun owners-and raised tens of millions of dollars-campaigning against the threat of a national database of firearms or their owners.

But in fact, the sort of vast, secret database the NRA often warns of already exists, despite having been assembled largely without the knowledge or consent of gun owners. It is housed in the Virginia offices of the NRA itself.

The National Association for Gun Rights (NAGR), a group that positions itself to the right of the National Rifle Association, slammed its rival Thursday after BuzzFeed reported that the NRA has been building a vast secret database of gun owners.
