We already caught a glimpse of this during the “StopWatching.Us” rally, but now pro-gun groups are lining up alongside gullible liberals to attack the NSA and the Obama administration.

The National Rifle Association (NRA) is among a number of groups that have signed on to an American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) lawsuit against the secretive government agency. [...]
Another Second Amendment advocate, the Gun Owners of America, expects to back NSA legislation as well. [...]
The NRA is one of the most active lobbying forces on Capitol Hill, but a spokesman said the group is not yet meeting with lawmakers about intelligence reform, focusing instead on the lawsuit.
Gun Owners of America, in contrast, plans to mobilize a full-scale advocacy campaign involving “hundreds of thousands” of advocates once NSA legislation gets moving, according to Pratt.
This would be a good time to remind you that the director of Gun Owners of America, Larry Pratt, believes in the coming U.N. takeover and that immigrants will some day take away your guns. He also warned that President Obama would deliberately withhold Social Security checks in the event of a government shutdown. Obviously that didn’t happen.
The NRA and Gun Owners of America both believe that the NSA is using its powers to create national gun registry, among other things.
In Hindsight, that’s just as plausible as the idea that the NSA is watching every single thing you say and do, scrutinizing your sexts and reading your emails to Mom and Dad.
As for working with the NRA, the ACLU’s head lobbyist Laura Murphy justified this in a manner similar to the way some liberals do when they find themselves on the same side as Ron or Rand Paul.
“If we’re working with an organization and we can agree on one narrow principled objective, even if we disagree 90 percent of the time, we’ll find a way to work together. … [W]hen it comes to developing strategic alliances, both of our organizations are very sophisticated,” Murphy said.
Someone who agrees with you on “one narrow principle” for dubious or malicious reasons is not your friend or ally. This is utterly naive, opportunistic, and asinine.
