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.
We do not accept appointments.
As an ACLU policy, we do not provide employees contact information.
