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.

The Supreme Court Declines to Consider Price v. Chicago

On July 2, the U.S. Supreme Court denied certiorari in the case of Price v. City of Chicago, although Justice Thomas would have granted the petition. The American Constitutional Rights Union, joined by Students for Life in America, filed an amicus brief in support of the Petitioners, who were challenging the constitutionality of a Chicago ordinance limiting the speech rights of anti-abortion protesters.

ACRU Files Amicus Brief in Support of Arizona Voting Integrity Policy

Arizona, like every other State, has adopted rules to promote the order and integrity of its elections. At issue here are two such provisions: an “out-of-precinct policy,” which does not count provisional ballots cast in person on Election Day outside of the voter’s designated precinct, and a “ballot-collection law,” known as H.B. 2023, which permits only certain persons (i.e., family and household members, caregivers, mail carriers, and elections officials) to handle another person’s completed early ballot. A majority of States require in-precinct voting, and about twenty States limit ballot collection.

Voters Not Allowed to Vote Republican at Polling Location, Given Democrat Ballot Instead

In 2018, ACRU successfully sued Starr County, TX for voting irregularities. The County settled, agreeing to fix their corrupt system. Apparently they have not honored settlement terms, or cleaned up their act, as last week Republican primary voters were shooed away from voting by election officials or told to "just vote for a Democrat." News flash to Starr County from ACRU: we'll be back.

ACRU lawsuit still making a difference in Broward County

ACRU sued Broward County Election Supervisor Brenda Snipes in 2016 for not maintaing voter rolls, thus opening the door for fraud. She lost her job, and pro-vote integrity Pete Antonacci was appointed by then-Gov. Rick Scott. Florida’s upcoming primary is March 17th, and all (Irish and otherwise) eyes are on Broward. So far, it seems Antonacci has done all the right things to secure the county’s votes in anticipation of the national scrutiny that will be on Broward on November 3.
