The American Civil Liberties Union was founded in 1920 and is our nation's guardian of liberty. The ACLU of Maryland was founded in 1931.

What is the ACLU's position on the Second Amendment?

The Second Amendment provides: "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed." Given the reference to "a well regulated Militia" and "the security of a free State," the ACLU has long taken the position that the Second Amendment protects a collective right rather than an individual right. For more information, please read the National ACLU's statement on the Second Amendment.
