The NRA, In Their Legal Battle With New York AG, Gets VERY Unlikely Ally

Published

There was a time when liberty was a universal value. In the last decade, we’ve watched as those on the right and the left became so polarized–and so polarizing–in their own pet issues, they often seem to have forgotten that liberty for one is liberty for all.

And whether or not you agree with the rights of given advocacy groups, there is a point where if you see their First Amendment rights to advocate for their pet issues is worth defending…because their First Amendment is your First Amendment, too.

This is, stunningly, the reasoning the ACLU has apparently taken as they’ve decided to step up to the plate on behalf of the NRA.

The far-left, notoriously progressive American Civil Liberties Union has sided with the National Rifle Association, the Second Amendment advocacy group on which the vast majority of the left seems to rest all the blame for gun violence.

This is absolutely the kind of thing we need to see much, much more of these days.

The case has to do with the New York Attorney General’s attempt to punish corporations or financial institutions that do business with the NRA, which is something that, the ACLU has quite sensibly realized, if successful, could sent a precedence for other states to target groups the ACLU likes, like Planned Parenthood or even the ACLU itself.

The Daily Wire explains:

The state of New York is looking to repeat the Obama Administration’s disastrous, and likely unconstitutional efforts in Operation Choke Point, a Department of Justice program that levied similar sanctions on institutions that did business with groups the Obama Administration considered “unsavory,” like gun manufacturers, fireworks vendors, home-based charities, payday lenders, pornography producers, and, according to Forbes, any “legal businesses that the Obama administration deem[ed] to be politically incorrect.”

Operation Choke Point ended in 2017, after it fell under Congressional scrutiny. The Trump Administration ended the practice completely.

But then New York decided to take up the yoke of punishing businesses it felt didn’t deserve the right to contract with whom they pleased inside the state’s borders.

Initially the NRA argued that it would suffer severe financial damage because of New York’s rules, but later, the Texas Public Policy foundation, arguing on behalf of the NRA, suggested that New York’s efforts actually impacted the NRA’s First Amendment rights.

In their amicus brief, the ACLU agreed, arguing that New York’s rule “‘would set a dangerous precedent for advocacy groups,’ no matter their viewpoint, because public officials would be encouraged to use their regulatory power against the ‘disfavored.'”

Well goodness gracious there just might be hope for our liberal Republic after all…

Save conservative media!

Once again, “Project Veritas” continues to prove that it is one of the only reliable investigative arms in the media world. They expose the truth. Now that liberals have completely infiltrated Hollywood, big tech, the mainstream media and the education system, it is imperative that “Project Veritas” remains alive and well and free to operate. James O’Keefe’s outlet has, again, exposed CNN for the anti-Trump goons they really are.

Details: Minneapolis City Council Is Attempting to Defund the Police With $8 Million Cut

How ridiculous!

It takes a special kind of (insert own curse word here) to call for defunding police departments. You have to be incredibly politically challenged to think doing so is a good thing. We know, beyond any reasonable doubt, that less police presence equals higher crime rates. Fact. But that’s how the left likes to live: backward. From The Daily Wire: The Minneapolis City Council is trying again to defund the Minneapolis Police Department, after an initial effort to eliminate the city’s existing law enforcement apparatus and replace it with a “community-oriented” solution failed. Minneapolis’ CBS affiliate reports that three members of the Minneapolis City Council, all of whom supported a drastic plan to defund and disband the city’s police department following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis police custody, are offering a “follow-up” solution that involves slashing the police budget and drastically cutting the number of MPD officers. CONTINUED: “Minneapolis City Council Member Phillipe Cunningham saw the mass protests following George Floyd’s death in late May as an imperative for something new,” the outlet reported Tuesday. “He and council colleagues Lisa Bender and Steve Fletcher have co-written a budget plan that proposes moving about $8 million out of the police department. For context, the current budget allocated nearly $200 million to MPD.” Bender is the force behind the City Council’s initial effort to defund and disband the police, and famously told interviewers, over the summer, that fears about a rising crime rate were evidence of “privilege.” Liberals need help. If they don’t get it, the entire nation will continue on a downward trajectory.
