Stooges waking up: ACLU realizes Democrat’s Senate gun control bill could be death of liberty

Written By: Bob - Apr• 04•13

The American Civil Liberties Union is left-wing in nature, but it doesn’t mean that they are entirely blind.

As Senate Democrats struggle to build support for new gun control legislation, the American Civil Liberties Union now says it’s among those who have “serious concerns” about the bill.

Those concerns have the capacity to prove a major setback to Sen. Harry Reid’s current gun bill, which includes language from earlier bills introduced by Sens. Chuck Schumer and Barbara Boxer.

In an exclusive interview with The Daily Caller, a top lobbyist for the ACLU announced that the group thinks Reid’s current gun bill could threaten both privacy rights and civil liberties.

They look at the current gun control bill being proposed by Harry Reid in the U.S. Senate, with universal background check provisions written by notorious Second Amendment threat Chuck Schumer, and see the groundwork illegal and unconstitutional gun registration scheme. They see the Boxer “snitch line” as nothing more or less than a way for vengeful people to call in report their neighbors and enemies for imaginary crimes and revenge infractions… essentially, federally-supporting SWATting.
The Senate gun control bills must be defeated. Hammer your Senators, and remind them that they work for you.

    I hope this bill gets squashed. But if it does pass, some will think civil disobedience to be in order.

    I do not advocate SWATing our pols, especially those that support this bill. But some may.

    I would just like to welcome the ACLU in defending all the rights under the constitution. A threat to one is a threat to all. Lots of good quotes from the founding fathers on that point. But I prefer a different quote in greeting the ACLUs comments:

    “Welcome to the party pal.”

    Heck no, I’m encouraging them to vote FOR it! I want them to pass every Socialist, Statist wet-dream they have.

    The sooner we get people to realize how much we’ve lost, the sooner we can get it all back.

    The first two boxes have failed, my friends. Continuing to hope that a group of over 500 Statists will somehow suddenly wake up and restore all the rights they’ve stolen and repair the economy they’ve destroyed is rather foolish.

    Speak for yourself right 2 bear. I will be buying trac-phones with cash like a mad-man and reporting every person with an Obama-Biden sticker I see to the Stasi-tip-line. If some of them get a late-late-late-late term abortion out of the deal, they got nobody to blame other than themselves. They voted for this. They and their families will reap the repercussions of their stupidity.

    nice of the ACLU to finally wake up… too bad they don’t really support the 2nd Amendment.

    as for contacting my Senators, they are Boxershorts & Fineswine, so i won’t bother.

    first they will take the guns.

    then they will take the internet.

    if you have any liberal friends/family/ explain this is the schedule of the administration.
