On Wednesday the National Rifle Association joined up with the American Civil Liberties Union in a lawsuit aimed at ending the government’s recently exposed phone record collection program. The NRA filed a bried in federal court outlining their belief that the National Security Agency’s collection of phone records could be used to store a “national gun registry”. The group argues that the government be able to identify gun owners based on phone calls to gun stores, or shooting ranges. The gun-rights organization gears that Section 215 of the PATRIOT Act could be used to justify the collection of firearms dealers’ transaction records and centralize them in a database.
