Vox Gets Their NRAs Mixed Up

The online publication Vox, which frequently runs anti-gun content, tweeted a link to an article meant to discredit the National Rifle Association by citing a statement from the organization’s president in 1934. For the graphic accompanying the tweet, Vox used an appropriately old-timey poster with “NRA” and “1934” prominently emblazoned on it. 

Problem is, the NRA in question was the Depression-era National Recovery Administration. It doesn’t seem like the fine journalists working at the publication can keep their NRAs straight—even when the poster in question features text about “cocoa and chocolate manufacturing.”
