The city of Phoenix, in an effort to attack local businesses who were advertising their gun safety training classes through an advertising campaign led by TrainMeAZ.com, stepped on the 1st Amendment right to free speech by censoring paid advertising which did nothing other than promote gun safety training. What exactly does Mayor Phil Gordon and the Phoenix City Council have against gun safety programs? Does the Mayor really want everyone to be as incompetent and unsafe around guns as he appears to want to be? It is clearly his right to choose not to learn about gun safety, but it is not his right to prohibit free speech that does nothing other than promote gun safety programs for everyone else.

TCC (Terrant County College) was ordered to pay $240,000.00 for prohibiting an empty holster protest by members of SCCC (Students for Concealed Carry on Campus). Hopefully this will be a lesson learned not only by TCC, but by any College or University who has the desire to ban 1st Amendment protected Free Speech by proponents of 2nd Amendment freedoms. Be sure to check out the FIRE (Foundation for Individual Rights in Education) related video "Empty Holsters:"
