Canadian Columnist Advocates For Guns and God

Outspoken syndicated columnist Mark Steyn has a bone to pick with anyone attacks two of the things that, in his opinion, elevate the United States above places like Europe.

"As for "gun-totin'," large numbers of Americans tote guns because they're assertive, self-reliant citizens, not docile subjects of a permanent governing class. The Second Amendment is philosophically consistent with the First Amendment, for which I've become more grateful since the Canadian Islamic Congress decided to sue me for "hate speech" up north. Both amendments embody the American view that liberty is not the gift of the state, and its defense cannot be outsourced exclusively to the government."

He hit the nail on the head with that statement. Very well said, Mr. Steyn. Read his full column in the Orange County Register online.
