Gov. Bobby Jindal (R-LA) signed a bill allowing guns in church — which means that anti-second amendment Lefties (in my best Col. Nathan Jessup voice, “Are there any other kind?”) started exploding second later.
Because, you know, guns kill people, and OMG you can’t even go to church now without gun clingers mingling with the Bible clingers.
But honestly, I don’t understand why Lefties care so much…it’s not like they go to church anyway…
Rep. Henry Burns, R-Haughton, introduced the bill, allows…
…authorized persons who qualified to carry concealed weapons having passed the training and background checks to bring them to churches, mosques, synagogues or other houses of worship as part of a security force.
The pastor or head of the religious institution must announce verbally or in weekly newsletters or bulletins that there will be individuals armed on the property as members of he security force. Those chosen have to undergo eight hours of tactical training each year.
Opponents of the bill said that churches should remain “free of guns and violence” and should focus on worship. Yeah…well someone should remind the Leftards that gun-toting criminals intent on killing unarmed civilians aren’t exactly scared off by gun-free zones. In fact, a lot of recent mass shootings occur in places, such as schools and universities, that are deemed gun-free zones. Which, to a criminal, means un-armed victims.
Men have the right to protect themselves wherever they are. Even church.
I would suggest the anti-second amendment dimwits at TPM, Shakesville, Alan Colmes Land, etc. go read this fantastic piece at — you’re not going to believe this — the Daily Kos in support of the second amendment, titled “Why liberals should love the Second Amendment.”
It’s one of the clearest and most concise arguments supporting the second amendment you’ll ever read.
Liberals can quote legal precedent, news reports, and exhaustive studies. They can talk about the intentions of the Founders. They can argue at length against the tyranny of the government. And they will, almost without exception, conclude the necessity of respecting, and not restricting, civil liberties.
Except for one: the right to keep and bear arms.
When it comes to discussing the Second Amendment, liberals check rational thought at the door. They dismiss approximately 40% of American households that own one or more guns, and those who fight to protect the Second Amendment, as “gun nuts.” They argue for greater restrictions. And they pursue these policies at the risk of alienating voters who might otherwise vote for Democrats.
And they do so in a way that is wholly inconsistent with their approach to all of our other civil liberties.
Those who fight against Second Amendment rights cite statistics about gun violence, as if such numbers are evidence enough that our rights should be restricted. But Chicago and Washington DC, the two cities from which came the most recent Supreme Court decisions on Second Amendment rights, had some of the most restrictive laws in the nation, and also some of the highest rates of violent crime. Clearly, such restrictions do not correlate with preventing crime.
So rather than continuing to fight for greater restrictions on Second Amendment rights, it is time for liberals to defend Second Amendment rights as vigorously as they fight to protect all of our other rights. Because it is by fighting to protect each right that we protect all rights
Make sure to go read the entire post. Don’t read the comments, though; they’re mostly typical Liberal tripe.
