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.
Patriot. Friend. Teacher. Student. Husband. Father. Legendary thinker. Christ follower. On this day of profound mourning for Professor Walter E. Williams, it is difficult to summarize the life and legacy of my friend with only a few words.

It seems that Maryland churches are being targeted by Maryland healthcare department crisis tyrants. ACRU President Lori Roman, and a Maryland pastor targeted by the local health department, explain why this is an abrogation of everyone's rights.
Election protocols and vote integrity are the Constitutional purview of state legislators. As ACRU Action's Amb. Ken Blackwell notes, they must keep our votes secure, especially after liberal judges stole legislative power by green-lighting liberal anti-vote security lawsuits before the election.
“World history makes it clear that the final nail in liberty’s coffin for any people is when their political voices are stolen through institutionalized fraud orchestrated by leftist elites and their pawns. When the right to free and honest elections is removed from voters, there is no avenue left to fight for other basic rights. America must never accept vote fraud, and we must rely on our state elected officials to protect this most sacred trust.”
ACRU Action Board Member Ken Blackwell: Legislators, not jurists, are responsible for vote integrity
“In Pennsylvania, there was a clear violation of Article II of Constitution that gives authority to state legislatures to set the calendar and electoral rules for the state’s voters - not the state judiciary, not the Governor, and not the Secretary of State. In other states, liberal lawsuits waved through by liberal judges usurped the power of the people by dismantling vote security measures passed by their state legislators. This must be corrected, and state legislative bodies must reclaim their authority to protect voters against fraud, political criminals and activist judges that overreach. A recent article from The Federalist, noted below, provides a few simple steps legislators can take to ensure the integrity of the election process.”
From his experience as the former mayor of Cincinnati and a high ranking Ohio state official, ACRU Action Board Member Amb. Ken Blackwell takes on the corruption and bad intent of PA Governor Tom Wolf and his agenda to nullify votes of the good people of Pennsylvania.
Noting the obvious — only US citizens can vote in US elections — ACRU Policy Board Member Walter Williams is concerned that, “counting illegal immigrants in the census undermines (the) fundamental principle that every citizen-voter has an equal voice.” It is indeed a dangerous road. Walter references Hans von Spakovky’s work in his article, and we are grateful to have them both on team ACRU.
Writing for The Heritage Foundation, ACRU Policy Advisor Hans von Spakovsky calls out the media for its coverup of a giant problem — vote fraud. With examples past and present, Hans makes the case that the media is deliberately ignoring the truth about fraud and vote theft. He identifies outright lies by the media. “Journalists” may try to wish vote fraud away, but the rest of us know better.
