    Maybe if they saw some support from a community like this they would take up the cause?
    I dont see it happening. They are too busy championing real causes like making sure the Boy Scouts cant use the school grounds, ensuring that the NAMBLA people can distrbute thier flyers and stuff like that, that real Americans support.
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    That strongly implies the ACLU is, in fact, doing this. I believe the history of their lack of comment in the entire area is the strongest suggest that they are anti-2A to a solid degree. I simply can't believe it's due to limited funds. I mean, it doesn't take much cash to craft a policy position and make strong public statements when clear violations are made, even if no legal machine is fired up to go after it in the way the 1A Machine is.

    Interesting idea, about the "earmarked" donations. In practice, I am assuming that donations are simply tossed into a big pile, so I don't see it causing much change in the perception of the urgency/interest on the part of the people.

    I fear that the ACLU will take up the issue when the house is burning, but by then it'll be far too late.

    IMO, the ACLU is extremely anti-gun.

    Witness: ACLU Blog: Because Freedom Can’t Blog Itself: Official Blog of the American Civil Liberties Union Heller Decision and the Second Amendment

    They hold that the Second Amendment is a collective right.

    And in practice, they're silent on clear examples of the trampling of the 2A. That speaks volumes.

    That was not my take. My guess is that hotel security is less likely to push people with guns strapped to their hip into on coming traffic than those that don't. At least according to the report security had no inhibition against pushing the reporter onto the road. Truth is I doubt if I would have shed a tear if he had gotten run over

    So can the hotel security (or Denver PD)--whichever one pushed the reporter into the street...be charged with reckless endangerment or assault? Pushing someone into traffic can't be an authorized tactic...
