The book banners are going after bookstores now.
Libraries weren't enough for them.
They want to censor your books, pure and simple.
According to a Facebook post, Virginia state Del. Tim Anderson, an attorney, and his client Tommy Altman, a congressional candidate in the district around Virginia Beach, are suing Barnes and Noble, a private business, in order to restrict your access to books that don't fit their political and religious beliefs.
Send an email to your Representatives to take a stand against censorship in your state.
Of course, he stands to financially profit from his lawsuit as well as use it to politically grandstand for his client's campaign for public office. If elected, we're sure Tommy Altman will continue to use the government to dictate which books Americans like you are allowed to read.
Every $10 we raise helps us reach 1,000 people like you with petitions like these.
This should be an alarm bell for millions of Americans like you who support the First Amendment and believe that it is not the government's job to regulate private businesses based on religious or political ideologies. These attacks on reading and free expression are intended to make themselves a profit and simply score a few cheap political points.
HELP US REACH MORE AMERICANS LIKE YOU

We can't let attacks on our Constitutional Rights like this continue. We need you to stand up to corrupt leaders who would dissolve your rights just to get elected - and make a few dollars for themselves.
