WASHINGTON, May 27, 2013 — The Second Amendment of the United States Constitution gives citizens the right to bear arms.
Adam Kokesh, recently released from custody for demonstrating to legalize marijuana, has organized an “Open Carry March on Washington” for July 4th in Washington, DC. Kokesh wants to use the march to demonstrate public support for the Second Amendment and the right for citizens to own weapons.
In the United Kingdom, there is no right for citizens to bear arms. What difference does it make?
Michael Adabolajo, a 28 year-old Britain of Nigerian decent, allegedly brutally beheaded a British soldier in the name of Islam in London last week.
Recent reporting suggests Adabolajo may be a follower of the Somali terrorist group al Shabaab. British media report that when Adabolajo was a teenager, he converted from Christianity to Islam. He called himself Mujahid and joined the Islamist group Al Muhajiroun, banned in the UK under the Terrorism Act.
Witnesses at the scene of the attack on the soldier said the men shouted “Allahu Akhbar”, meaning “God is great” in Arabic, while filming the beheading.
What kind of citizen films a beheading of another man?
“We saw clearly two knives, meat cleavers, they were big kitchen knives like you would use in a butcher’s, they were hacking at this poor guy, we thought they were trying to remove organs from him,” witness “James” told LBC radio.
Why were the citizens at the intersection area of John Wilson and Woolwich Street so passive during this act of horror?
It allegedly took the police 20 minutes to arrive at the scene. The video shows no one running or screaming during the killing. It shows no one taking action to stop the perpetrators.
Why did no one in the UK exercise their right to bear arms and help rescue the soldier?
In the United Kingdom, citizens have no right to bare arms. In the United Kingdom Firearms Act 1968, civilians are not allowed to possess semi automatic and automatic firearms, handguns and armor piercing ammunition without holding a certificate under this Act authorizing him to possess shotguns.
The UK is known for having the lowest rates of gun homicides in the world. There were 0.04-recorded intentional homicides committed with a firearm per 100,000 inhabitants in 2010. Gun homicides were only 2.4% of all homicides in the year 2009. In most case the UK citizen cannot use a gun a weapon of choice to defend themself inside and outside of their home.
The weapons of choice in the United Kingdom among young people is knifes.
Over the last 8 years (2005 to 2012) a knife or sharp instrument was the most frequently used weapon in teenage murders (representing 68% of fatalities); there was a Gun (firearm) used in 18% of London Teenage Murders. A knife and a gun are used proportionally more in London teenage murder cases when compared to all British murder statistics, where a knife is used around 40% of the time and a gun was used approximately 6% to 7% of the time.
In America, citizen have the right to own arms for individual use. The Second Amendment protects the right of individuals to possess a firearm for traditionally lawful purposes, such as self-defense within
The America founding fathers found the right to bear arms extremely important. It was so critical that they protected the right by enshrining it in the Constitution.
Libertarian radio host Adam Kokesh’s mission is to make sure the people retain their right to bear arms. The “Open Carry March on Washington” July 4th 2013 will make history.
Kokesh, like other libertarians, worry the constitutional protection to own weapons is under attack. However, libertarians believe gun control laws will fail thanks to public rejection of those laws.
Koresh wants the American people to send a simple message to President Obama, that the right to bear arms is a right they will not relinquish.
