Had an idea recently. I'm not sure how everyone here feels about the ACLU, but we can all agree that they are a longstanding and active organization, but a little weak on the 2A. The ACLU's official position on the 2A is that it is a "collective" right (whatever that means) see: http://www.aclu.org/racial-justice_...law-reform_immigrants-rights/second-amendment Well, apparently with the recent financial turmoil, one of the ACLU's major donors is unable to make his/her/their regular donation. This has left the ACLU with a 20% budget shortfall and they are of course looking to their other members to help make this up. Sounds like an opportunity to me. We are all accustom to contacting local Senators and Representatives, why not write the ACLU? Would you write the ACLU a check (or a larger one) if they stood up for the 2A as much as they did the 1A and other rights? Tell them how you feel about the 2A. Tell them that there is no collective right without an individual right. Remind them that "The People" referred to in all the rest of The Bill of Rights are individuals. Let them know that their stance on the 2A is preventing you from writing them a check! (or a bigger one) Go here: http://www.aclu.org/contact-us and let them know. Let's see what we can accomplish, right?
