The NRA Exists for Itself. The ACLU Exists for Others.

The New York Times asksĀ Can the A.C.L.U. Become the N.R.A. for the Left?

I can see the Times was going for prominence in the political domain. But it’s important to remember that the NRA exists for itself while the ACLU exists for others. Much like the difference between the GOP and those on the left.
