Member of ACLU ... and of NRA
Margaret Romao Toigo has an interesting article in blogcritics: "Why I Love the ACLU in Spite of its Warts -- With Hugs and Kisses to the NRA." I wouldn't agree that the ACLU's position on the Second Amendment is "neutral" -- it's a waffling anti-individual rights one-- but the article is worth the read.
BTW, it is interesting that the ACLU's position has been watered down over the years. I can remember when it was solid "collective rights." Today it's that the right is " primarily a collective one" -- note the qualifier "primarily" -- that it does not confer "an unlimited right" (hard to name one substantive constitutional limit that does).
One friend, who travels in ACLU national circles, said that the reason ACLU is so squeamish is that if they recognized an individual right (as all the big names in American constitutional law do these days) a lot of their donors might back out. Against that would be the point that they backed the Nazi march in Skokie many years ago. But then they took a BIG hit in membership and donations over that one, and haven't repeated the experience in the last twenty years or so.
