After the San Bernardino jihad slaughter of a few days ago, I was left to wondering what – if anything – this jihad attack means for my home state, Maryland.
The answer I keep getting is, “not a damned thing.” Well, not a damned thing good, ” anyway.
We, as in you and me, are sitting ducks for those more “radicalized” Muslims – a number of which will be able to enter the “Free State” as refugees through Montgomery County (Thank the Lunatic County Executive Ike Legget and the MOCO County Council for THAT), despite Governor Larry Hogan’s “request” to the Borat Administration that Maryland not have to take any of those Syrian refugees. Well, they’ll be able to come through Montgomery County unless or until the Governor takes some punitive measures against the county, anyway. On that last note, I strongly advise that you don’t hold your breath. Hogan has his re-election prospects to consider.
Whatever, the jihad attacks will continue, I’m sure, and here we are in Maryland, which has some of the most restrictive gun laws in the nation, twiddling our thumbs instead of getting ready to defend ourselves if such an attack should hit here at home. If ever there was a time to free up gun restrictions in Maryland, and elsewhere, this is that time – and yet there’s the President, talking about increasing rather than decreasing gun restrictions…which begs the question, “How insane IS he?”
Speaking of which, I’ve heard that during last year’s gubernatorial campaign, then candidate – and now Governor, Larry Hogan – had told a few Democrat led gun clubs (whose support he needed) that he would change Maryland from being a “may issue” concealed carry permit to a “shall issue” state.
That hasn’t happened yet. But it should happen and it should happen NOW. Go ahead, Governor, change that one word.
In addition, Larry Hogan could change it the way I would, were I governor – via Executive Order.
In fact, if I were Governor, the first thing I would do upon taking office would be to issue an Executive Order stating something along the lines of the 2nd Amendment being the only gun “license” anyone needs.
Hell, I’d do that even if there were no ISIS or jihad attacks, you understand – because, it’s like we’re all Americans, the vast majority of you reading this are Marylanders and, well, it’s like your right to own a gun. You dig?
But, since ISIS is on American soil, and since Jihad attacks will continue, there is absolutely no acceptable reason to not allow each and every one of us the options to defend ourselves however we may see fit.
Syed Farook and Tashfeen Melik or however the Hell you want to spell it murdered 14 people in an act of jihad. This wasn’t insanity – zealotry, yes, insanity no – it was an act perpetrated by Muslims who, from what I’ve heard anyway, memorized parts of the Quran and were in touch with their ISIS masters shortly before engaging in their killing spree.
Ten to one, if one of those folks who were killed had had a gun, all 14 of those folks wouldn’t be dead right now.
Come on, Governor – the ball is in your court. Do what’s right and let your fellow Marylanders defend themselves as they see fit: Make the ludicrous gun control laws in MD less restrictive, if not alright Kill them. Now.
Oh, wait…I forgot. You DO have your re-election prospects to consider, don’t you?
