Yes, it has. It was on record in the past of being for background checks and has since changed it's position.

NRA Supported Universal Background Checks After Columbine Massacre
It is no surprise that you used, again, a radical left wing website to copy and paste misrepresentations.

The comical contradiction and fabrication in your paste job:
In May of 1999, under intense pressure following the Columbine High School massacre, National Rifle Association CEO Wayne LaPierre told Congress that the gun lobby supported instant background checks at gun shows. On Wednesday, back before the Senate Judiciary Committee following the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School, LaPierre uncomfortably withdrew his support for universal background checks.
Instant background check and a universal background check are two different things, but your paste job tries to present them as the same.

What LaPierre said to Congress: “When it comes to be background checks let’s be honest. Background checks will never be ‘universal,’ because criminals will never submit to them.”

The Congress is attempting to create a national registering with the universal background check, and it is being opposed. LaPierre stated, “This so-called background check is aimed at one thing — registering your guns. When another tragic opportunity presents itself, that registry will be used to confiscate your guns … Imagine right now your name on a massive government list.”

The Huffington post is not a radical left wing site. And if you want to find more out, you can find this information from a large number of sources. LaPierre supported background checks after Columbine. And again, the universal background check system is not a national registry.

Are you now really trying to claim that instant background checks are different than universal background checks? Because that would be hysterical.

Huffington Post is radical left wing.

Why do you even argue what you do not understand? There is a difference between instant background checks and the universal background checks being presented. It creates a data base for every background check performed. Do you not know the difference between a database of every background check performed acceptable by the government and a federal registry?

Actual universal background checks are not the equivalent of a national registry. And after Columbine the NRA supported background checks and have since changed their tune as their lobby turned even further to the right.

Listen, you can spew your propaganda to someone who may buy it, but it won't work on me. The NRA supported instant background checks. Can you get that through your head? That is not the same as the universal background check as proposed by Congress.

A national database of everyone who buys a gun is a national registry.

The NRA supported background checks and a huge portion of the members of the NRA support having them right now as well. Stop pretending that there is a difference between instant background checks and the ones we are talking about now. There isn't.

This only showcases your ignorance. Rather than must spewing talking points from Huffington, try reading what Congress has proposed for the universal background checks.

Maybe they are hidden like Bush's supplemental spending, you know, the one where you were posting your copy and pastes facts that the spending was hidden and off the books. Will hidden if you do not count the public proposal for the spending, and the open debated in Congress, and hidden if you do not count being on the year end CBO report. Is it hidden like that?

Why? THe NRA has supported background checks and since changed it's position, The White House is not advocating a national registry and most people in the country support universal background checks on all gun sales. That is a fact. And no, not all proposed legislation would create a registry. If you have evidence to the contrary then please post it. Otherwise, stifle it.
