Terrorist uprising in Iraq demonstrates the need for Second Amendment

Posted on June 23, 2014 at 5:20 p.m.

The second largest city in Iraq, Mosul, has been captured by ISIS, an al-Qaeda group, and so the Iraqi government has now authorized the citizens of those cities and of Baghdad to have guns to protect themselves and to fight the al-Qaeda. They do not have a Second Amendment that permits them to have guns.

For those in our country who do not like our Second Amendment and believe they will be more secure if guns are taken away from our citizens let them move to Mexico, where their citizens are not permitted to own guns. In Mexico, only the army, the police and the members of the drug cartels have guns and the result of that law leaves their citizens in danger from the criminal cartels who rule parts of Mexico. Let’s preserve our Second Amendment and our safety.
