Court decides against free speech about guns
This is the advertising poster the city of Phoenix tore down in the middle of the night
The lowest court to hear the free-speech case against Phoenix, for censoring the "Guns Save Lives" Educate-Your-Kids firearm-safety campaign, has decided against the plaintiff in the case, Alan Korwin and TrainMeAZ, LLC. The TrainMeAZ campaign will proceed with an appeal and Phase II
"As expected, the judge ruled against us," Korwin said. "What is shocking is the utterly superficial nature of the ruling—one of the worst any of us have ever seen, especially with the volume of evidence and complexity of the case. We've been at this now for two years—hearings, filings, sworn depositions, responses, evidence gathered and submitted. Although we're displeased, our interest is not diminished."
