Guns Needed To Protect Us From Sharia Law

Tea Party Congressman Louie Gohmert (R-TX) told a conservative radio show on Thursday that the GOP must oppose gun regulations to protect the country from the threat of “Sharia Law.”

Appearing on The Voice of Freedom, Gohmert said he “hoped and prayed” that Congress rejects gun safety legislation, arguing that Americans may need to use the rights guaranteed by the Second Amendment to avoid succumbing to Muslims:

[The Second Amendment] is for our protection and the founders’ quotes make that very very clear and including against a government that would run amuck.We’ve got some people who think Sharia Law should be the law of the land, forget the Constitution. But the guns are there… to make sure all of the rest of the Amendments are followed.

I have one question for Gomer, uh, Gohmert: Who are these "some people" who think Sharia Law should be the law of the land?

Moron.

    Um, from what I can tell, extremely conservative Christians (read: Tea Partiers) want to impose their own version of Sharia Law upon the rest of America. So, yeah, there’s the irony; we need guns to protect us from the Tea Party, who are also screaming about Second Amendment rights. Of course, we don’t ACTUALLY need guns to protect us from them, as fewer people are taking them seriously on a daily basis.

What do you think?
