As Obama said last night: “We can’t let “this fight be defined as a war between America and its gun owners”. Based on words taken from Obama’s speech on radical Islam, I offer the following.
Millions of patriotic gun-owning Americans “reject the hateful ideology” of gun-wielding felons who do not value human life.
The NRA “does not speak for the law-breaking”, evil thugs who will find any means to obtain a gun. Those thugs and killers are “part of a cult of death”. And those who use guns to destroy other human beings “account for a tiny fraction of the millions” of gun owners around the world.
“It is the responsibility of all Americans, of every faith, to reject discrimination. It’s our responsibility to reject proposals” that gun owners “should somehow be treated differently. Because when we travel down that road, we lose. That kind of divisiveness, that betrayal of our values plays into the hands of groups like” lawless killers.
Gun owning “Americans are our friends and our neighbors, our co-workers, our sports heroes. And, yes, they are our men and women in uniform who are willing to die in defense of our country. We have to remember that….”
OH, WAIT! On more careful reading, it was the Muslim community which Obama supported, not those who wish to use their 2nd Amendment rights to protect themselves from the radical Muslim Islamists. We have never heard him speak in this inclusive way about gun owners, have we?
The Weekly Standard noted: “The authors of the Esposito-Mogahed book define Muslim radicals as those who say the 9/11 attack was “completely justified,” which was seven percent of the sample. However, there were two other categories of respondents who said that the attack was at least partially justified, and they are labeled by the authors as “moderates.” The first of those groups comprises 6.5 percent of the sample, the second comprises 23.1 percent. Further, the respondents in that last category, making up 23.1 percent, also said that they hate America, want to impose Sharia law, support suicide bombing, and oppose equal rights for women. Yet Esposito and Mogahed call them “moderates.” http://www.amnation.com/vfr/archives/010556.html
The latest figures state that there are nearly 2 billion Muslims in the world. If “only” 7% are radicals, that means there are 140,000 million radicals. If those who “just” support Sharia and suicide bombing are included, there are “only” 640 million Muslims who wish to kill us Infidels. That, according to our President, is just a tiny unrepresentative minority – nothing to worry about! We have nothing fear but fear itself, as it was once stated.
