ACLU Gun Advertisement | Sonoran News

The ACLU is nothing but a bunch of communists hell-bent on destroying America.

I agree with the ACLU and support the law suite.

I'm no ACLU fan, but as I read the article the ACLU stood with the gun business in defiance of the city's arbitrary refusal to accept their ad. They were on the right side for a change. I guess what they say is true, even a broken watch is right twice a day.

What? They are fighting on behalf of a business for Free Speech. I don't understand why you think they are hell-bent on destroying America.

A business's ads were removed from bus shelters and buses, despite the city approving similar ads in the past.

The ACLU sued, saying that it was a violation of Free Speech. Maricopa agreed with the city and upheld the decision. the ACLU is appealing that ruling in Appeals court.

How is this "hell bent on destroying America". Fighting for Free Speech is destroying America? since when?

Yeah, I think you need to explain your reasoning here better. Do you have a problem with free speech? That is what the ACLU is defending here.

The ACLU's record of defending the 2nd Amendment is not a good as their record of defending the 1st Amendment.

State chapters are much better at fighting for the second amendment then the federal group, though they are slowly changing.

They did come out against expanding background checks.
