The ACLU has opposed using the secret "no fly" list as a "no buy" list for guns.

They opposed taking away gun rights based on Social Security Disability status.

And here's the ACLU amicus brief supporting the NRA against Cuomo.

Usually the ACLU won't touch a straight 2nd Amendment case. However, if the case involves the parts of the constitution they DO support, they will help. They are very much opposed to secret lists, financial extortion to silence free speech and group suspension of constitutional rights, and rightly so.
