Activist challenges Phoenix in court over
refusal to run 'Guns Save Lives' ads
December 02, 2013, FoxNews.com
A gun-rights activist is taking the city of Phoenix back to court over its refusal to put up a bus-stop ad that declares "Guns Save Lives."
The case is as much about the First Amendment as it is about the Second. The Arizona Republic reports that the three-year legal battle is heading to the Arizona Court of Appeals on Tuesday.
The decision could have sweeping implications for free speech in the state, and on whether advertisers should be limited in what topics they can and cannot address on city property.
The battle started when the city removed 50 of the ads, put up by activist Alan Korwin, from city bus stops.
Phoenix claims the signs violate its policy banning "non-commercial" advertising at transit stops.
But Korwin and a conservative watchdog group are joining up with the American Civil Liberties Union to argue against those restrictions. While Phoenix is hoping to avoid controversy by barring political messages at city bus stops, Korwin's legal team and supporters argue that the state offers more expansive free-speech protections, according to the Arizona Republic.
The city reportedly allowed Korwin to put up a slightly different ad, which said: "Guns Stop Crime."
But Korwin argued this was just part of their "censoring" process.

The Gang Movie
This deep digging documentary movie was released in 2007 and runs 85 minutes. It contains material that many would find hard to believe, as it exposes the abuses and inconsistencies of the out-of-control agency BATFE.
Purchase a copy from the JPFO store, learn the facts, and then pass that information on to those who might have any doubts. Current events concerning the "Fast and Furious" debacle, sometimes known as "Gun Walker" just amplify the degree of corruption that exists, and has existed for so long.

The JPFO Homepage Footnotes
Since the loss of our Founder, Aaron Zelman, back in December of 2010, the JPFO current team has vowed to not only continue his mission but, best we can, expand on it and aggressively maintain the thrust of JPFO’s objectives. We produced a new-look site layout which is an attempt to make for more page space, more interest, and helpful navigation. Your support is essential and appreciated - please join or donate to help the efforts.
What many new visitors may not realize is that over 11 years and more, the site has accumulated a wealth of information and so, apart from using the links in our navigation menus, it is well worth researching through our search option in the upper right of the header, although older pages may often come up. JPFO tries to educate and provide "intellectual ammunition" to help people be better informed and so better able to fight the fight themselves. It is through representation by the individual that progress can be made in protecting our fundamental rights.
The sad fact is, that the anti gun movements feel that a ban across the board is essential, and yet we all know through simple logic that banning of guns, and so depriving law-abiding folks of their innate right of self defense, is a recipe for not only a destruction of the Second Amendment but also a refusal to acknowledge that all the criminals will as always, remain armed and dangerous. The battle is hard but has to be sustained and Genocide could be right round the corner.
Reflections on JPFO history and the future.
