Activist challenges Phoenix in court over refusal to run ‘Guns Save Lives’ ads

by  |  published on December 3, 2013

A gun-rights activist is taking the city of Phoenix back to court over its refusal to put up a bus-stop ad that declares “Guns Save Lives.”

The case is as much about the First Amendment as it is about the Second. The Arizona Republic reports that the three-year legal battle is heading to the Arizona Court of Appeals on Tuesday.

The decision could have sweeping implications for free speech in the state, and on whether advertisers should be limited in what topics they can and cannot address on city property.

The battle started when the city removed 50 of the ads, put up by activist Alan Korwin, from city bus stops.

Phoenix claims the signs violate its policy banning “non-commercial” advertising at transit stops.
