About Us

The Civil Liberties Defense Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit legal foundation that was originally founded in 1999 for the purpose of defending the inalienable rights guaranteed by the Bill of Rights of the U.S. Constitution and to educate the public regarding those rights.

In 2000, CLDF filed a lawsuit on behalf of Texas legislators and gun stores against 31 liberal cities across the country who were attempting to litigate gun manufacturers out of business and infringe upon our right to Keep and Bear Arms as protected by the 2nd Amendment. Once this counterattack was launched, the efforts by greedy trial lawyers and Leftist mayors fell apart.

CLDF is also dedicated to educating the public regarding their God-given rights and the need to vigilantly defend them from attacks by the Left.

Increasingly in America, Freedom of Religion is under attack, Free Speech is under attack in town squares and on college campuses across the country, and the Right to Keep and Bear Arms continues to face assault from the radical Left and their friends in the Media.
