My Guest today is: Bill Frady Gun Owners of America
Gun Owners of America filed an amicus brief in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit in late May, challenging the draconian Connecticut gun ban.
The Connecticut law -- now infamous for making criminals out of hundreds of thousands of otherwise law-abiding citizens who have refused to register their weapons -- bans so-called “assault weapons” and “large capacity magazines.”
In court, the district judge bought the old, tired arguments that the ban is necessary to protect the police and further public safety. Despite finding that the ban “substantially burdened” the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms, he felt the burden was not unreasonable in light of the competing public interest.
Never mind that these arguments were rejected by the U.S. Supreme Court in the DC v. Heller case. As such, the district court used a judge-empowering “balancing test” to justify the ban.
But GOA’s brief argues, among other things, that the judicial standard of review for Second Amendment cases is the amendment’s text itself -- “shall not be infringed.”
Every American needs to understand that the entire national press is controlled, and is simply giving you the "news" you are supposed to have. Very soon, all alternative sources of news, including this website, will be shut down. That time draws ever closer.
