The Supreme Court has struck down political speech restrictions, a ruling NRA EVP Wayne LaPierre tells NRA News host Cam Edwards is, "a big, big victory for anybody who believed that the First Amendment applies to everyone in this country-not just politicians and big media conglomerates." The high court's decision makes it easier for businesses and unions to mount political campaigns for and against candidates for Congress and the White House.
Chris W. Cox, NRA-ILA chief lobbyist, said, "This decision today returns sanity to our political system. The First Amendment does not allow Congress to make laws denying Americans the right to speak out on issues, the right to assemble or organize on public policy issues, or the right to petition our government for redress of grievances."
