NRA’s New Ally Shows Leftist Lunacy

The ACLU, a pro First Amendment organization that often also supported leftist causes, has backed the NRA in its lawsuit against the Andrew Cuomo. The Daily Caller reports:

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) defended the National Rifle Association (NRA) by opposing New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s attempts to put the gun advocacy group out of business.

The ACLU submitted an amicus brief in federal court on Saturday, weighing in on the on-going battle between the Democrat and the NRA.

The NRA filed a lawsuit against Cuomo and the state’s financial regulatory bureau in July, contending that the agency instituted a “blacklisting campaign” by threatening insurers and financial institutions that associate with the organization. The bureau warned that by continuing to work with the NRA, banks and insurance companies could face regulatory action.

The NRA has subsequently been deprived of basic insurance and may be “unable to exist as a not-for-profit or pursue its advocacy mission.”

While the ACLU supported the NRA on First Amendment grounds and not the Second, it is a powerful reminder that the Democrat Governor in New York is abusing his power in order to destroy a political opponent.
