Below is the header for the ACLU of Central Illinois’s Facebook page:
I couldn’t help but wonder if the 2nd Amendment in the Bill of Rights is important to the ACLU. Their page has stories about the students “rights” to protest gun violence but nothing about the citizens rights to defend themselves.
I sent them the document copied on District 87 equipment and handed out to students on March 14th. I asked if they had a problem with it. (The document: Emailing Take Action 4 Sensible Gun Reform)
The document BHS handed out is propaganda. It instructs the student on what bills they need to tell legislators to pass. The kids were told what to think, not how to think.
The ACLU claims to support the Bill of Rights.
This was a test to see if ALL rights are created equal or if the ACLU picks the rights you are allowed to have.
The official position of the ACLU is that individuals do not have the right to own guns.
I received this link stating as much: https://www.aclu.org/other/second-amendment
They don’t agree with the Heller Supreme Court ruling in 2008 clarifying the intent of the 2nd Amendment when it was written.
When the Constitution was ratified, the Framers unanimously believed that the “militia” included all of the people capable of bearing arms.
See this link: https://www.lectlaw.com/files/gun01.htm
We would not be a free country if the people in the 1700’s didn’t own guns. The Constitution was written by people who knew what it took to defeat the British, of course they wanted to make sure future generations could defeat their own “British”.
The ACLU needs to take the pic off their Facebook page.
The ACLU decides what rights need to be defended. The 2nd Amendment isn’t one of them. How long before Free Speech is no longer necessary?
Question: Why would the framers write an amendment guaranteeing government can bear arms?
