CDC implements gun violence study after naming it a ‘public health threat’

The term “boundary violation” has real meaning in the medical community, but apparently the CDC is tone deaf on the issue. After seizing power over real estate owners and landlords through eviction moratoriums, the agency is now a self-proclaimed expert on crime. What’s next? Public health scientists drafting unconstitutional gun control policies and regulations?

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.

ACRU files two SCOTUS briefs upholding Second Amendment rights

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.

“If you see me in DC, say hi. You’re safe with me.”

The right to bear arms is enshrined in our Constitution. Liberals treat it as a policy issue rather than a right and pass laws blocking individual right to self-defense. Freshman Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) is challenging DC gun laws that only allow unloaded guns in Congressional offices and none on the streets. We expect the DC government to take legal action. This may end in a Supreme Court challenge.

Liberals should The Second Amendment’s relationship with Constitutionalist jurists Trump’s Supreme Court nominee | TheHill

“Our desperate lack of civic literacy and understanding of the principles of our U.S. Constitution is never greater than when the Second Amendment is involved,” notes Derek Cohen, our colleague at the Texas Public Policy Foundation. In explaining the court’s role in a three-branch system of government, he affirms our right to bear arms as well. We couldn’t have put it any better.
