February of 1964, the first issue to go to press that wasn't already 'in the can' when JFK got shot, apparently. The January issue was a big pro-2A one already down the pipeline and was thus probably sounded discordant when it arrived after the assassination. Like Wayne LaPierre's statement on Newtown, a week after that happened. Not that Lapierre was wrong, his delivery just could have been a sweeter performance.
But nothing in the January issue mentions the president. The February one certainly mentions it. And calls for calm rather than a rash passing of a passel of gun ban laws. It also looks like Gun Magazine was starting up a shooter organization at that time. Or was closely associated with it.
The magazine mentions severely bad gun control laws that had been recently stopped/killed. I have no idea what was proposed. They seem coy on the details. Anyone know what they were talking about?
