ACLU wants to “save” black Americans by saying they shouldn’t have easy access to carry permit
These guys are a joke.
Issue: Whether the state of New York's denial of petitioners' applications for concealed-carry licenses for self-defense violated the Second Amendment.
They are siding with NY’s restrictive laws at a time when black Americans are choosing to exercise their 2A rights in record numbers:
About 40% of gun buyers in 2020 purchased a firearm for the first time, according to the National Shooting Sports Foundation, an industry trade group that compares the FBI's background check data with sales data.
Customers are increasingly diverse. Surveys last year showed a 58% increase of African American gun buyers in 2020 compared to 2019, NSSF spokesman Mark Oliva told CNN, more than any other racial group.
"Today's gun buyer is shattering tired and worn-out stereotypes of who owns a gun," Oliva said in an email. "Today's gun owner is younger, includes more women, more minorities and doesn't just look like the rest of America. They are America."
Gone are the days the ACLU stood up for all rights, including those of the neo-Nazis of all
people. Now, they’re just another spin off of the establishment and their narrative. Not surprising though, as now they’ve buddied up with Everytown For Gun Safety. I wonder how the ACLU feels about the NFAC and other armed black groups?.....
We at Mom-at-Arms support the 2A rights of everyone, regardless of if we agree with them on all issues. The fact remains that all Americans have the right to bear arms. With the ACLU siding with NY (and using African Americans as an example as to why carrying guns in public is “dangerous“), they’ve proven they no longer care about civil liberties like the 2A.
