ACRU files two SCOTUS briefs upholding Second Amendment rights

January 21st, 2021|

ACRU recently filed two amicus briefs with the Supreme Court questioning whether lifetime bans on firearm ownership in cases where citizens were convicted of non-violent crimes is constitutional as applied. In separate cases, a woman convicted of tax fraud in 2011 and a man convicted of misdemeanor DUI in 2005 were blocked from firearm purchases after they satisfied their sentences and have been law-abiding since. In both cases, ACRU argues these convictions should not block the right of these Americans to exercise their Second Amendment rights.

ACRU’s Roman: Monumental Wounds

August 15th, 2020|

My great-great grandfather was a hero of the Civil War--a soldier of the Ohio Cavalry who was wounded and captured. He almost died in the most notorious and horrific Confederate prisoner of war camp. As a child, each Memorial Day, I heard the stories about the War Between the States as my dad put flowers on his great granddad’s grave. The stories were not told with animosity. Just facts. But I developed my own prejudice against Southerners based on those facts.
