Congressman Says Americans Need Guns To Protect The Nation From Sharia Law

By Igor Volsky (ThinkProgress)

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.

  1. “We’ve got some people who think Sharia law … ”

    Who are “we” and who are these “people” and what exactly have they done or said that corroborates this insane, Islamophobic hate rant?

    No different than the Joe Walsh rant that incited violence that resulted in a murderous rampage against innocent human beings.

    Empty words that mean nothing but the spread of bigotry by another idiot that is doing nothing to further the country or do good for humanity.
