“We were prepared to go to court and sue if they did not put them up. Having a gun is a constitutional right.”
Alan Gottlieb, founder of the Second Amendment Foundation, speaking about ads promoting gun ownership that his organization succesfully placed at the San Francisco Metropolitan Transportation Agency’s busstops despite the Agency’s policy of not promoting guns. Ironically, earlier this year the MTA had forced the makers of the movie “The Other Guys” starring Mark Wahlberg and Will Farrell to alter an ad for their movie so that the two stars held cans of pepper spray instead of guns. But the Supreme Court’s pro-gun-rights ruling in McDonald v Chicago, the controversaial gun rights case, has made the agency rethink its policy. Gottlieb is quoted in an article about the subject in the New York Times.
