So instead they resort the the typical red herrings of the gun control movement:
The ACLU therefore believes that the Second Amendment does not confer an unlimited right upon individuals to own guns or other weapons nor does it prohibit reasonable regulation of gun ownership, such as licensing and registration.Very few people argue it's an 'unlimited right' nor does any reasonable person consider the registration systems in place such as Chicago or DC 'reasonable'. And the use of the slippery-slope to nukes is just pathetic to see from an organization like this.
I wonder what they they would say to the FACT that the Illinois State Police regularly violates state law by delaying the issuing of licenses up to 6 months.
Perhaps the ACLU should enter the 21st Century and its progressive views of the Second Amendment.
