Suspension of the 4th Amendment

The ACLU has gone after firearms on more than one occasion and has thus ended up on my wolf in sheep’s clothing list. However they came out with a new campaign involving the Constitution recently I will at least call attention to. I do find it interesting they’ll defend the 4th and 1st Amendments but they feel the 2nd Amendment it is somehow different with regards to whose rights it guarantees.


Evidently if you live within 100 miles of any border, including water your 4th Amendment rights have been “suspended”. There were some news articles back in 2003 however this has largely gone unnoticed. While the provision was placed within the 4th Amendment, 100 miles is royal overkill. To make matters even worse however, what is to prevent them from declaring that International airports are not covered under the same provision? 100 miles around any international airport will cover probably 99% of the US.

Time to go rack up some range time.
