Posted on 02/21/2013 10:02:02 PM PST by Tailgunner Joe
Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) told a conservative radio host this afternoon that he believes Americans must be allowed to own firearms to protect against the growing threat of sharia law.
Appearing on web-radio show The Voice of Freedom, Gohmert argued that Congress ought to vote down any restrictive new gun regulations because American gun-owners need their firearms as a defense against Muslims who want to subvert the United States Constitution with the Islamic moral/political code.
[The Second Amendment] is for our protection and the Founders quotes make that very, very clear. Including against a government that would run amuck, he said, before explaining: Weve got some people that think sharia law should be the law of the land forget the Constitution. But the guns are there, that Second Amendment is there, to make sure all of the rest of the amendments are followed.
Gohmert has long expressed a belief that elements of radical Islam have infiltrated the United States government. Last fall, he vocally led the charge to investigate Clinton aide Huma Abedin for what he suspected were ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. He has also led the push for congressional hearings on creeping sharia law.
To the headline: not a bad idea....
but it really was to protect the citizens from z tyrannical government.
Love ya’, Louie!
I love Louie, He is a local fellow, but Louie Louie....
The Target is Obama at the moment.
He is the chap trying to disarm you.
Muhammed is bent on taking over too but he is 7K miles away.
‘RatLaw is an issue along with UnConstitutional’RatLaw, not to speak of ‘Rat ignorance of Law, nor Traitor Roberts Law.
Muslims are in DC.
There is, or was, a settlement in Red House, VA. Everyone there dressed just as they would in a taliban controlled village in Afghanistan.
There are many others, some very large as in Detroit, and some very small as in Red House.
The threat is real and it is not 7,000 miles away.
His servant is in the White House. Louie Ghomert is right on this since the Obama regime is dismantling the Christian foundation of our country to make way for an Islam theocracy.
"...my Muslim faith..." -- Hussein Obama
"...the Muslim call to prayer is one of the prettiest sounds on Earth..." -- Hussein Obama
"...we are no longer a Christian nation..." -- Hussein Obama
I am just saying focus on the enemy’s at the gate.
You are both correct. I think this statement may end up backfiring & hurting the cause a lttle, at least.
I agree with you, and he ought to be prepared for some heavy-duty Alinskyite sliming from CAIR and the Muslim-in-Chief;)
I don’t have time to analyze all the cultural and theological BS.
I only know that Obama is the Great Divider, and he is the community organizer that Divides the camp.
I imagine there are a world of folks that I would get along famously with if this fellow Obama was not pissing in the waters of life (COMMUNITY AGITATING)
I guess it’s just me, but it appears that he didn’t say what the Headline says he said.
Yeah I know, What Difference Does It Make?
“Americans must be allowed to own firearms”
I suppose we Americans don’t give a rat’s a** what any critter thinks we should be “allowed” to do.
I bought a Marlin .22 yesterday at Dunhams, and the two guys buying AR-15s, and the rest of the crowd buying firearms—as is their right—must feel the same way.
So thanks for the warm thoughts Louis. Now, balance the budget, impeach Barry—do your dam job.
muslims, nazis, or progressives (but I repeat myself)... the form of govt is not the reason for the 2nd amendment. it’s the actions of the govt and the ability, along with the other specific rights outlined in the bill of rights, to oppose those in power... thereby helping to insure our freedoms
The sad part in all this is that people simply refuse to believe their own eyes and ears. They refuse to accept that we are thoroughly infiltrated from the military to preschool with muslim supporters and outright jihadists.
And eventually, they will apologize to the swarthy guy with the sword or AK for soiling the new muslim lands with their kafir blood.
Because people are really that freaking stupid. And have been conditioned to give up their lives and the lives of their families rather than ‘offend’.
Think I’m being ridiculous? Ask yourselves why the families of Ft. Hood are getting the shaft and whose shafting them. Then reevaluate your thoughts of ‘ridiculous’.
His most self-damning words were “when the holy Koran was revealed.”
No one seems to pick up on that one. Revealed. Try it on.
Gohmert says it like it is. He’s got a way with words and whole heap of courage.
Some of these other posts in this thread are a little too much “Islam is a religion of peace” nonsense. Gohmert is spot on that we need to protect from encroaching Sharia law. People need to wake up
