Re: History question
The Gun Control Act of 1968 came about because of the alleged lone gunman Lee Harvey Oswald(google him). Up until then you could buy thru the mail no problems, no questions, no one cared. I bought my first deer rifle, a 99 Sav .308, in 1964 thru the mail, I was 14. And my first long range rifle, a LH 264 Win Mag, thru the mail in 1966, I was 16. After the CIA killed the redhead in Dealy Plaza(google that) then all the paperwork came about and a massive Federal bureaucracy and phone call center in WV was created. The waiting time is now ...45 minutes.
The commies won that one. But if you join the NRA and pay your dues it will be their last victory over the 2nd Amendment.
