Calif Man Sues Over Guns & Religion
Quote:A Sikh man in Yuba City has filed a federal lawsuit asking that California make an exception to purchasing illegal assault weapons, based on religious grounds.

Gursant Singh Khalsa has been a practicing Sikh for more than 30 years. When he moved to Yuba City from New Mexico recently, he took note of how restrictive California’s gun laws are.

“This is very restrictive of my religious beliefs,” said Khalsa.

There are around 25 million practitioners of the 500-year-old religion that originated in India. Religious doctrine describes members as saint/warriors who revere weapons to defend themselves and their families from persecution as welling as defending others who need help.

The ceremonial daggers called Kirpans are worn by all Sikhs as a symbol of their beliefs, but Khalsa says modern weapons are needed in a society where turban-wearing Sikhs have been mistaken for terrorists and have been killed or injured.

“I feel that modern weapons like the assault rifle or the semi-automatic pistols that have magazines with ten or rounds would be essential in today’s society in order to defend ourselves,” said Khalsa.

It's the "BILL OF RIGHTS" not the bill of "needs"

He should be able to buy the guns based on American grounds. He is an American and should be able to practice his Constitutional beliefs. It sad that he even has to consider going the religious route.
Everytime we look the other way when someone else loses rights we disagree with, we make it easier to lose the rights we support.
