How does the American Civil Liberties Union count to ten? One, three, five, six . . . The ACLU’s antipathy for the Second Amendment is well established, by both word and lack of deed. To that list we can add hypocrisy . . .
Speaking of Lyft policy, “The company consistently advocates for fair hiring practices regarding background checks.” Apparently, “traditional processes often create inequitable practices that block it from hiring potentially great talent.”
Joseph Okpaku, the VP of government affairs for Lyft said, “We quickly uncovered an institutional bias in favor of background checks that both rely on fingerprints and also look indefinitely into an applicant’s past. We’ve taken a stand against reliance on fingerprint-based checks that have repeatedly proven to be biased and inaccurate.”
A stance that the ACLU supports. For drivers-for-hire. Gun owners? Ha!
Regarding the Second Amendment in general and firearms purchases in specific, here’s what they have to say about that . . .
The American Civil Liberties Union does not oppose gun control laws. As an organization dedicated to defending all constitutional rights, we believe the Second Amendment allows reasonable restrictions to promote public safety.
The ACLU is not a friend of ours. In case you didn’t know.
