NRA Joins ACLU Lawsuit Against Feds

NRA Joins ACLU Lawsuit Against Feds

The Obama administration continues to bring people together, this time the National Rifle Association and American Civil Liberties Union.

The odd pairing has teamed up against the government's spying program, claiming the National Security Agency's mass data collection could be used to create a national gun registry.

Jeremy Alcede at Tactical Firearms in Katy says the more the merrier.

“My enemy is my friend,” Alcede tells KTRH News.  “I have no problems with anyone joining forces to fight for our rights.”

Alcede's shop meantime, is doing what it can to keep his client's information private.

“We became a manufacturer, and we're not required to send in multiple long gun purchases, because the local sheriff and ATF would then have that information,” he says.

Still, the NRA fears the government's database could allow the feds to identify and track gun owners who have called gun stores, shooting ranges or the NRA itself.

“Big brother knowing what you're doing is not cool,” says Alcede.  “They're trying to instill fear in the American public and we can't bow down to it, we can't be scared.”
