LawSuit: a Sikh American reminds Californians of their Pre-Constitution, Natural Right of Self Defense!Submitted by AnCapMercenary on Sun, 03/31/2013 - 23:34
In a reference to the Oak Creek, WI Sikh Temple attacks on Aug. 6, 2012:
“I feel that if a Sikh had been armed, they could have taken that guy out,” Mr. Khalsa said Thursday. “We believe in self-defense, standing up for your rights, and, if necessary, to defend yourself and, if necessary, use lethal force to stop someone.

A Sikh man is suing the state of California over its gun laws, arguing they violate his First Amendment rights to practice his religion by barring him from carrying the kind of weapons he says he needs for self-defense.
Gursant Singh Khalsa, a practicing Sikh for 35 years, charges in the lawsuit filed this month that California’s laws banning military-style, semiautomatic weapons and high-capacity magazines violate mainstream Sikh doctinre requiring Sikhs “be at all time fully prepared to defend themselves and others against injustice.”
“We’re required to wear what’s called a kirpan” or dagger, he said Thursday. “I feel, as far as my religion goes, it dictates that we should have all weapons of all kinds to defend ourselves. By not being able to carry an assault rifle or weapon that has a high-capacity magazine, I don’t feel that I can defend myself or my family.”
Mr. Khalsa, who lives in Yuba City about 40 miles north of Sacramento, said he believes such a right should be available to all Americans with the proper training but that it’s also specific to the Sikh religion, which has roots deeply tied to self-defense.

** How far has California fallen, that a son of immigrant must remind them of their own rights by going through the tremendous physical, psychological, emotional, and financial toll to ensure that he and his fellow men/women remain free??
Using 1st Amendment to defend the 2nd! Thank god for Mr. Gursant Singh Khalsa!
