Why We Have The Second Amendment

The Second Amendment is probably the second most debated item in the Bill of Rights after the much maligned First Amendment and the fiasco surrounding Church and State. The founders realized we needed the citizenry to be armed to prevent tyranny from its own government. They also realized that the government and its police forces do not protect people because they are reactionary. You never see the police show up 5 minutes before a crime but they are almost always there after one. One other reason that we have the right to keep and bear arms is to prevent our country from being invaded and taken over from enemies external or from within. That is the part that deals with a well regulated militia (which is not exclusive to the keep and bear part). Unfortunately, those who would exact governmental tyranny are always attempting to disarm law abiding citizens. If they ever succeed it will be the demise of our country and our culture. Terrorist leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi has made that abundantly clear in his latest statement.

Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, speaking for that coward Osama bin Laden, (who has rarely been seen since the US lit a fire under his ass) says there are two conditions for the end of Holy War:

“First, chase out the invaders from our territory in Palestine, in Iraq and everywhere in Islamic land.

“Second, instal [sic] sharia (Islamic law) on the entire Earth and spread Islamic justice there (…). The attacks will not cease until after the victory of Islam and the setting up of sharia,” he swore.*

This radical islamofascist is not content with having the Islamic lands free of “those who worship the Cross”* but will not be satisfied until Islamic law and justice is imposed upon the Earth. We have seen the result of Islamic law and justice and it usually involves cutting off someone’s head. These cretins would impose their will upon the Earth, a statement that shows the left that our leaving Iraq will not end the terror, and they would push the world back in history where those deemed unworthy are executed and people are denied basic rights for something as inane as simply being a woman. If there was ever any doubt that Murtha, Kennedy, Kerry and the rest of the liberals have it wrong by insisting that pulling out of Iraq will end the violence against the US, this statement should clear that up.

Those of us who believe in the Second Amendment know why it exists and the statement of this terrorist should send a shiver down the spines of every thinking being and enlighten those who oppose the right to keep and bear arms. I know one thing for sure. If the terrorists come around here trying to impose Islamic law they will learn the law of Smith and Wesson. I can promise a lot of them will be looking for their virgins after such a fool hearty adventure.
