That may be an insult to bat guano. Here's the latest quote from Louie Gohmert (R-Beamed Up in an Ion Storm Into an Alternative Universe), per ThinkProgress (2/21/13):
[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.Let's look at the "logic" here, from the wingnut point of view.
1. I have the right under the Second Amendment to kill whomever I want if I think it's necessary to protect the constitution.This no way to talk in a country that is awash both in guns and religious fanaticism. Haven't we had enough lynchings, enough Tim McVeighs? (Here's a handy list of wingnut terrorists, BTW.)
2. Sharia law is a threat to the constitution.
