NRA wins in NOLA, ACLU absent

From the article:
The United States District Court for the Eastern District in Louisiana today sided with the National Rifle Association (NRA) and issued a restraining order to bar further gun confiscations from peaceable and law-abiding victims of Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans.
Good to see that my NRA subscription money actually did some good. Glenn Reynolds calls this a "Civil Liberties Victory," which of course it is, but it made we wonder (not for the first time) where the ACLU was in protecting the rights of law-abiding citizens of NOLA? I didn't hear anything out of them about the gun confiscations. In fact, at this time, they have nothing about it on their website, nor did they have anything about it a week ago when I checked, nor did they have any information about illegal firearm confiscations two days ago when I checked.

I guess the rights of NOLA's citizens (not to mention mine and yours) are only rights if the ACLU thinks they're right.

(Ed. Note- I'm sorry for the above line, really I am. It was a long day at work, etc. etc. I'll try not to let it happen again.)
