    "“It’s neither a blanket no or a blanket yes,” said Anthony Romero, the ACLU’s executive director, to The Wall Street Journal. “The events of Charlottesville require any judge, any police chief and any legal group to look at the facts of any white-supremacy protests with a much finer comb.”"

    Am I to assume that they will still represent a firearm carrying protest group that is NOT white supremacist? The ACLU is going to take it upon themselves to decide who deserves 1st Amendment protection and who doesn't? And there's a difference between carrying a firearm and using one.
