I haven't seen anyone else post this, so here it is: URL: http://www.worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=25320 Actual article: Arm yourselves, Americans © 2001 WorldNetDaily.com I'm surprised no one else has written this column in the aftermath of Sept. 11. I've waited this long because I thought it was so obvious. But if no one else is going to state what should be apparent in the light of the war we face with terrorists, I am glad to do it. The message is simple, Americans: Arm yourselves. We as a nation have never had a more crystal-clear reason for doing it – at least not since 1776. Our founders understood that an armed, vigilant, self-governing moral people was the best guarantee of preserving freedom. Once again, this self-evident truth needs to be re-stated. As Americans look around at our bridges, our tunnels, our airports and our nuclear reactors, we see armed troops. Why? Because there is an enemy within our midst attempting to destroy us, kill us, terrorize us. I understand the need for armed force at such installations. But there is even more cause for all good, able-bodied Americans to take up arms. We can't rely on a few thousand National Guardsmen to protect us. This is a cause for all of us. We must all do our part. I was a little disappointed when President Bush suggested the most patriotic thing Americans could do in these trying times was shop. I know how important commerce is to our country. But there's something more important if we are to defeat this implacable foe of Islamicist terrorism. We all need to be on guard. We all need to be prepared. We all need to be ready to defend ourselves and our country. Can you imagine how dangerous it would be for the handful of terrorists in this country if 250 million Americans were armed and on patrol against them? That's what I want to see. Dear people, the events of Sept. 11 demonstrated clearly to one and all that the government cannot protect you. It cannot protect your loved ones. It cannot protect our borders. It cannot even protect the biggest, tallest buildings – the very heart of our economy and financial system. I'll tell you something. I'll let you in on a little secret. I've been packing heat ever since Sept. 11. I'm locked and loaded. I'm just waiting for one of Osama bin Laden's suicide artists to show up around me, my family or my business. Because that's exactly what he will be doing – committing suicide. [rest of article deleted due to over size restrictions] Thanks, Merlin

Did you catch my e-mail posting from James Farah, in which he admitted he's a member of the NRA, just not one they'd use in one of their 'I'm the NRA' ads? Eric The(AllTruePatriotsAreMembersOfTheNRA[u]Or[/u]SomeSimilarGroup)Hun[>]:)]
