I am generally a big fan of the ACLU but I was dissapointed that the ACLU did not lend a hand when the New Orleans police department unconstitutionally started door to door confiscation of guns from law abiding citizens in New Orleans after the hurricane.
*New Orleans police departmen*
How can I help you?
*Hand over any guns you have in the house*
*No. Hand them over now*
The NRA sued on behalf of law abiding gun owners and rightfully won. This was a no brainer.
Sadly, this was a golden opportunity for the ACLU to demonstrate they defend ALL the constitutional rights and ammendments and not just the ones that appeal to the left. I was dissapointed by their silence to say the least.
Unfortunaley the NRA (whom I am not a big fan of) seems to be one of the only organizations who defends the 2nd ammendment.
