NRA welcomes ACLU to gun debate, shares ‘significant concerns’ with Reid bill

The National Rifle Association has found an unlikely partner in the American Civil Liberties Union as both group’s vocalize concerns with key provisions in Sen. Harry Reid’s gun control legislation.

The two organizations have little in common — with the NRA considered an arm of the political right and the ACLU of the left — but when it comes to concerns about so-called universal background checks, the two groups are singing a similar tune.

“We’ve been saying for decades that some of these gun control proposals have significant detrimental effects toward the civil liberties of Americans,” NRA spokesman Andrew Arulanandam told TheDC Thursday, “and it’s heartening to see a group [the ACLU] that’s dedicated to preserving the civil liberties of Americans taking note of that and expressing their concerns.”

    The ACLU receives a huge amount of its funds via overstated legal fees from the government awarded to them when they win a civil legal suit. I’d like to have the same arrangement provided to the NRA on every time legal suit they win protecting our constitutional rights.

    Tabitha , You are totally correct. I do not trust the ACLU. They are one of the most anti freedom groups out there. However they also know that this case may have an impact on other civil liberty case’s that set the tone for more government control
