Here is a quote from their press release regarding yesterday's SCOTUS decision affirming the 2nd Amendment as an individual right:
"The Right To Bear Arms"
The Second Amendment has not been the subject of much Supreme Court discussion through the years. To the extent it has been discussed, the Court has described the Second Amendment as designed to protect the ability of the states to preserve their own sovereignty against a new and potentially overreaching national government. Based on that understanding, the Court has historically construed the Second Amendment as a collective right connected to the concept of a "well-regulated militia" rather than an individual right to possess guns for private purposes.
In Heller, the Court reinterpreted the Second Amendment as a source of individual rights. Washington D.C.'s gun control law, which bans the private possession of handguns and was widely considered the most restrictive such law in the country, became a victim of that reinterpretation.
The Court was careful to note that the right to bear arms is not absolute and can be subject to reasonable regulation. Yet, by concluding that D.C.'s gun control law was unreasonable and thus invalid, the Court placed a constitutional limit on gun control legislation that had not existed prior to its decision in Heller. It is too early to know how much of a constitutional straitjacket the new rule will create.'
And check out the next issue they comment on:
Voting Rights"Reinterpret"!?!? "New right"?!!? Excuse me, I believe SCOTUS clarified/affirmed that right.
"The Court's willingness to recognize a new right to bear arms was not matched by a willingness to enforce the fundamental right to vote...
Why ACLU would support the SCOTUS decision when their marxist ideology requires that the government can wield power over its people without having to worry about an armed revolt?
No really, why would ACLU comrades shoot themselves in the foot?
But let's take a closer look at ACLU's origins: the founder and guiding light of the ACLU for over 30 years is a Soviet plant named Roger Baldwin. Comrade Balwin has a record of over 100 communist-front affiliations and citations (documented in detail, CONGRESSIONAL RECORD May 26, 1952). In an article written for Soviet Russia Today (September 1934), Roger Baldwin said: "When the power of the working class is once achieved, as it has been only in the Soviet Union, I am for maintaining it by any means whatsoever." "The class struggle is the central conflict of the world, all others are coincidental.". (He said he did not care who died for his cause)
Entry of Roger Baldwin in the Harvard reunion book on the occasion of the 30th anniversary reunion of his class of 1905 (1935):
"I seek social ownership of property, the abolition of the propertied class, and sole control of those who produced the wealth: communism is the goal." (he said the final goal of the ACLU is to take individual freedoms from the people.)
