ACRU Applauds Supreme Court Second Amendment Decision: New York Rifle & Pistol Assoc v. Bruen

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.

Allen West: America’s Unique Freedom

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.

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 Action’s Roman: In Leftist Land, Who Will Protect You?

For years, liberals have told Americans they do not need guns because the police have guns. But now many leftists advocate defunding police altogether. This brings serious public policy questions. In Leftist Land, who exactly would have guns? And who is responsible for protecting Americans?

What a difference Constitutional Justices make

For decades, Ninth Circuit Court leftist judges stood athwart Constitutional freedoms and yelled “stop!” Since President Trump replaced a third of its activist judges, its decisions have changed. This includes a recent pro-Second Amendment decision slapping down a magazine ban by California politicians. The “new 9th” has reminded California that its citizens are still protected by the federal Constitution.

Liberal New York AG launches dishonest anti-2A campaign

With power vested in her by New York’s political leftists, NY AG Letitia James is suing the NRA for what she’s decided are too many executive “perks,” over which she has no authority. NRA has a Constitutional right to conduct business according to its by-laws, and its members have a right to complain if they don’t like it. But she wants to close down the NRA entirely, so it’s not about specific executives. We suspect her blatant attempt to discourage Second Amendment voters will be a gross misfire.
