(AP Photo/Steven Senne) The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) has long flirted with not really being about all civil liberties. Once in a while there were Second Amendment related causes that the ACLU got behind, but those days are long gone. Further, any support would have been in conjunction with another right, say that of protected speech. If the hypocritical ways of the ACLU were not fully imagined and realized before, they should be now. Recently the ACLU took aim at the “radical” Supreme Court term that’s wrapped up . They’re admonishing it as the “most conservative in a century.” As they size up and summarize the radical rulings, under the “losses” section, they take aim and fire at the Second Amendment. New York State Rifle & Pistol Association Inc. v. Bruen The Supreme Court struck down New York’s restriction on concealed carry and eroded the legal basis for gun regulations, ruling that states can regulate guns today only if they can point to similar laws in the 18th and 19th centuries — even though the threat of gun violence today differs markedly from those eras. Justices Kavanaugh and Roberts made clear, however, that in their view, states could impose various prerequisites before granting a public carry permit, including background checks and training requirements, as long as they restrain licensing officials’ discretion. The New York Civil Liberties Union and the ACLU submitted an amicus brief in the case, arguing that the unregulated carrying of weapons in public undermines the sense of safety required for an open, healthy democracy, and that state and local governments have long imposed strict regulations on the public carrying of guns. It’s probably about time that the ACLU change their name. They’ve been walking this fine line for years and have now leapt clearly across […]

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We just launched a GiveSendGo page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
