ACRU Applauds Supreme Court Second Amendment Decision: New York Rifle & Pistol Assoc v. Bruen

The American Constitutional Rights Union (ACRU) applauds the recent decision of the Supreme Court in New York State Rifle and Pistol Association (NYSRPA) vs. Bruen striking down the state’s abhorrent “may issue” scheme. “May issue” rights are no rights at all. Such policies are an abomination under the Bill of Rights of this Constitutional Republic.

Media Availability: Disarming Americans is the Best Way to Enslave Them

Naples, FL — In a recent editorial, American Constitutional Rights Union (ACRU) Policy Board member Ken Blackwell and ACRU President Lori Roman, note gun rights are the lynchpin of all rights and an essential underpinning of true freedom. Throughout modern history, dangerous authoritarians are the ones who prioritize gun confiscation from law-abiding citizens.

Blackwell and Roman: Disarming Americans is the Best Way to Enslave Them

Modern history provides troubling proof that loss of liberty is preceded by disarmament of citizens. This week, the most obvious example is right before our eyes as we watch the Cuban people pleading for freedom. Fidel Castro took control of Cuba in 1959 and immediately called for removing all guns from citizens. His new communist regime sent agents door to door to coerce citizens into turning over their firearms. If you think it could not happen here, recall the confiscation of thousands of home-defense firearms during the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

Liberals can't fool us with tricky names for bad law

Liberals are really good at coming up with titles for horrible legislation to try fool people into thinking some bill is a good idea. Such is the case with New Mexico's "Extreme Risk Firearm Protection Order Act" just signed by the state's Democrat Governor. It's a red flag law. It takes away due process. It stomps on the Bill of Rights. Most New Mexico sheriffs (the people who are actually responsible for public safety) agree with us. They don't agree with this un-Constitutional bill and they have plans to sue. Well done, sheriffs.

Good guys with guns tour a state capitol and fun breaks out

We love the picture in this article, so make sure you look. Apparently in Kentucky, you can’t bring an umbrella into the capitol building, but you can bring a gun. Irritated by Virginia Governor Ralph Northam, who tried to accuse VA lawful gun owners of being criminals before a fully armed, fully peaceful pro-2A rally on January 20th, KY gun owners decided to march on their capital in solidarity. The armed protestors loved the statues and paintings, had a great time, and not a single bad thing happened. Daniel Boone would be proud. We certainly are.
