After being handed their victory yesterday in McDonald vs. Chicago the Second Amendment Foundation is now moving onto their next target, North Carolina’s Emergency Powers Act:
“Through this lawsuit in North Carolina,” said SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan Gottlieb,” we intend to show that state emergency powers statutes that allow government officials to suspend fundamental civil rights, including the right to bear arms, are unconstitutional and therefore should be nullified. Citizens do not surrender their civil rights just because of a natural or man-made disaster.”
Hell yeah! The idea that the state can confiscate your private property, especially you means of self defense when you need it most is appalling. Currently the field is target rich with plenty of unconstitutional gun laws on the books that need to be struck down. It appears as though the Second Amendment Foundation is working fast on striking these laws down.
It’s also good to see a small second amendment group doing something great with their limited resources available. These guys are a group I’m proud to toss money to.
