ISIS now admits responsibility for the massacre in Orlando, Florida. A Radical Islamic Terrorist did this. He could have used a sword. He chose to use a gun. A terrorist used fertilizer in Oklahoma City. Radical Islamic Terrorists used box cutters and airplanes in New York City, Pennsylvania and the Pentagon. Banning implements is not the answer.
Americans need to be able to defend themselves, not have radicalized terrorists or the mentally unstable hold them hostage. When governments make gun free zones the criminal does NOT suffer, the law-abiding citizen suffers.
ISIS does not and will not conform to a well-regulated militia. Hard working Americans can and will.
John Stuart Mill spoke this centuries ago. “War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things: the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks nothing is worth a war, is worse. . . . A man who has nothing which he is willing to fight for, nothing which he cares more about than he does about his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.”
War is in America – New York City, San Bernardino, and now Orlando. Who’s next? Let’s stand up and defend this great nation and ALL classes of people who live here against radicalism. Don’t let “political correctness” cause the loss of life again. Speak up. This act of terror awoke an American sleeping giant spirit. Let us not forget freedom isn’t free. When you exercise your right to vote think about those who have experience with defending your freedoms. Without safety, rules don’t matter. This enemy doesn’t play by the same rules we do. Be vigilant. Be strong. Protect one another.
Today is Flag Day. Hang your flag proudly to show your patriotism.
