Never forget that an armed individual is a citizen, a disarmed individual is a subject. I choose to be a citizen, never a subject . . . What about you?
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.
Consider the events of April 19, 1775 at a place called Lexington Green in Massachusetts. As the British landed and were marching inland towards Concord for the purpose of destroying a weapons and armaments factory, men of valor prepared and answered the call to arms. The British military was the most powerful land force the world knew. Yet, those Sons of Liberty knew there was something at stake: liberty from tyranny. And so, they took the field of Lexington Green and fired the shot that was heard around the world.
History has taught us what happens when a nation's population is rendered defenseless.
What happened in Buffalo was horrendous. But the politicized exploitation and hypocrisy of the left is just as horrible.
The American Constitutional Rights Union filed an amicus brief in support of the New York State Rifle and Pistol Association for its Supreme Court case against Kevin P. Bruen, in his official capacity as Superintendent of the New York State Police. As reframed by the Court, the Question Presented is: Whether the State’s denial of petitioners’ applications for concealed-carry licenses for self- defense violated the Second Amendment.
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?
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.
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.
The Supreme Court announced Monday that it will decide a core gun rights issue: Whether the Second Amendment requires states to give permits to law-abiding citizens to carry concealed weapons.
