NRA joins lawsuit against NSA snooping

by Shaun Waterman-The Washington Times  |  published on September 5, 2013

The National Rifle Association has thrown its weight behind a challenge to the constitutionality of the National Security Agency’s domestic snooping.

In a court filing Wednesday with the federal district court in New York, the gun rights group argues that the NSA’s mass collection of records about every Americans’ phone calls and emails would allow the federal government to create a national gun registry.

“It would be absurd to think that the Congress would adopt and maintain a web of statutes intended to protect against the creation of a national gun registry, while simultaneously authorizing the FBI and the NSA to gather records that could effectively create just such a registry,” the NRA’s attorneys said in a friend-of-the-court brief filed in support of a challenge by the American Civil Liberties Union.
