Do you support civil rights?
NRA was founded before the NAACP
Your July 5 editorial stated, 'The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People is the nation's oldest civil rights organization …'
This is incorrect.
I don't know for sure what the oldest civil rights organization is, but the National Rifle Association was founded in 1871, far earlier than the NAACP'S 1908 founding. This makes the NRA the older of the two, and perhaps the oldest, period.
I realize that The Blade doesn't think the Second or Fifth amendments count as rights, but they are still in the Bill of Rights, and should be discussed as such.

Good for John Mueller, but we shouldn't be too surprised. Would you expect anything less from a resident of Defiance???
