An Unlikely Ally

The ACLU has always had an odd view of the Second Amendment. The organization has long held that the Second Amendment does not protect an individual right to keep and bear arms, and after the Supreme Court ruled otherwise, the national ACLU simply said it disagreed and did not see gun control or gun ownership as a civil rights issue.

That position may fly with the ACLU elitists in D.C. and New York, but surprisingly, there are some ACLU members who do see the Second Amendment as a constitutional right worthy of protection. A few years ago, the Texas State Rifle Association and the ACLU of Texas worked together on a piece of pro-gun legislation, and now the ACLU of Wisconsin is stepping up in defense of a teacher suspended for having a picture of herself with a rifle on her Facebook page.

The Wisconsin chapter of the ACLU says, "Absent any evidence that the teacher poses a threat, the district should not overreact to the sight of a gun in one of their employee's hands."

I couldn't agree more, and it's nice to have another ally in our fight to defend the civil liberties of this nation's gun owners.
