    The ACLU of Nevada has recently adopted a pro-Second Amendment position. I believe there is hope that can happen in other states.

    The tone of this article seems to be that the ACLU of MA is an enemy, because it has remained largely neutral on the question of guns in that state. I think that is a bit short-sighted, and suggests an anti-ACLU position based more on their other positions, opposed by social conservatives, than on their position on guns.

    When a municipality in my state violated our First Amendment rights when we were resisting a municipal gun buy-back, the ACLU went after them so strongly they decided to just shut down the gun buy-back, which was more than we had hoped for. Don’t go assuming enemies where none may be. You may miss a friend.

    I wouldn’t go so far as to call them a friend, but you’re right about not assuming they’re enemies, either. From what I’ve seen scattered around the net, while they generally won’t step up against 2A violations, they don’t let 2A involvement stop them when other rights are violated, either.
