We can’t sue the federal or state government when they go against our constitutional rights. We, as the American people, can do nothing but watch our liberties slip into the past.
Those of you who know what’s going on with freedom of speech, the right to bear arms, freedom of religion, the right to demonstrate and gather, freedom of the press — all these rights are under attack today and for the last five years. New York, California and Colorado have recently passed legislation stifling our Second Amendment, the right to bear arms, requiring background checks to buy a gun and now ammunition. Who owns a gun and buys ammunition for it is not part of our constitution.
The newspapers of our country do not tell you what’s really going on, so if you’re not aware of the freedoms under attack, this is one reason why. Other reasons are local news channels, and most cable channels protect this administration from the truth.
I believe the American people can now have a voice through themselves. We can sue companies that uphold these unconstitutional acts. The background check companies willing to do the government’s dirty work can be held responsible for infringing on our freedoms. Yes, they will say they are following the law, but they are infringing as the constitution states. A class-action suit for the American people against any and all companies that infringe on our rights.
OK, thousands of bar member attorneys in the State of Florida, do something! You can’t lose this case because it’s true.
