    The Sikh temple massacre prompted many on 'the Left' to call for stricter gun control, but some members of the India-based faith -- who carry ceremonial knives -- are considering taking up firearms in light of the horrible tragedy.
    Sikhs are rattled after the horrific Aug. 5th shooting in Oak Creek, Wis., in which Wade Michael Page opened fire for no apparent reason before a police officer finally gunned him down.
    Although the religion teaches tolerance and good deeds, many Sikh's believe that arming themselves would be the best protection against hate crimes that have too frequently been perpetrated by assailants who mistake them for Muslims.
    Page's own motive is unclear, though he was a known white supremacist.
    I think that being able to legally obtain and carry a gun is the best thing any Sikh can do, especially after 9/11 where there have been over 800 documented cases of harassment and violence against us, Sim J. Singh, a practicing Sikh and Florida-based law clerk who carries a concealed handgun for protection, told FoxNews.com.

    Good for them. If you are not willing to take up arms to defend yourself what right do you have to expect others to do it for you?

    They have a long and very good tradition as fighting men, unlike the left they know you cannot rely on others for your protection.
