    OK, let’s talk about the 2nd amendment. It’s original intent (we’d all agree) was that the people of the nation could bear arms for the purpose of preventing tyranny. You should watch the History Channel. Unless the 2nd amendment allows me to bear nuclear arms, it’s null and void. There is absolutely no way that you’d be allowed to form a militia that could overthrow our government. Anyone here old enough to remember Waco? The government will surround you, burn down your property, and murder your children long before you collect enough weapons to over through a TOWN… much less a city, state, or government.

    I will concede that our courts have upheld that the 2nd amemndment gives you the right to defend your property.

    But I thought believers were not citicens of this land? I thought we lived under a higher court? I thought that our laws supercede those of the government which allow us to routinely break God’s law.

    You tell me, kind friends. Who is the author and finisher of a human life? Where does Jesus give me permission to buy a gun (pre-meditation) and kill a human being for the sake of protecting my own life or the life of my loved one. (Or property?)

    My argument is that we have sychrotized our rights as American citizens with our rights as believers in Jesus Christ, bought and paid for on the cross of Calvary.

    My only other point is much more simple and less theological. We live in a modern police state. Very rarely will the need arise for us to defend ourselves with deadly force. Every day in this country hundreds of thousands of trained professionals use non-deadly force to maintain the peace. (But having that option as a method of ABSOLUTEL last resort.) Our owning handguns and running around like John Wayne does not make us safer. It gives us a false sense of security. It is simply not worth the risk of that gun getting into the hands of the wrong person. (in future use, whether stolen from your home or legally sold to another individual, etc.)

    OK, there’s some more hot metal for this fire.

    It would be funny if he werent serious.

    If he is seeking guidance in scripture-

    Luke 22:36 (King James Version)
    Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one.

    Above was the guidance of Christ to his followers preparing to set out on a journey. I would point out that swords were not used for peeling olives.

    Well, he has some very serious flaws in his writings there, in my opinion.

    "Very rarely will the need arise for us to defend ourselves with deadly force. Every day in this country hundreds of thousands of trained professionals use non-deadly force to maintain the peace."

    Both true statements.........but........there are incidents all the time where the use of deadly force saves the lives of an innocent victim. Truly, I bought my gun just to have fun with it and to target shoot but if I had to (and I hope I NEVER have to) I would use it to save my own life or those of my loved ones against someone wanting to harm us. I have seen some very thought provoking and eye opening posts here about when and how and why to use deadly force and I have been very impressed (and educated) in regards to those posts. Yes, he's right about the "trained professionals use non-deadly force to maintain the peace" if you're talking about shoplifters, dangerous drivers, arguing neighbors, stray or barking dogs. But if I were being held hostage but a nutcase or being beaten or otherwise physically harmed, I hope those trained professionals would use deadly force to save and protect me.

    "Our owning handguns and running around like John Wayne does not make us safer. It gives us a false sense of security. It is simply not worth the risk of that gun getting into the hands of the wrong person. (in future use, whether stolen from your home or legally sold to another individual, etc.)"

    I have never seen anyone running around like "John Wayne" with their guns. Mind you, I live in a state where one cannot carry but I'm sure in my lifetime and travels I have stood next to and mingled with many people who were carrying. I never really thought about it as I have never witnessed anyone shoot a 'cheating poker player' or someone who was bad talking someone or his family members to someone's face. There are laws as to the use of deadly force. I don't think there were any in the old West, except for the honor and dignity of the men carrying the guns. As for the guns getting into the hands of the wrong person, for me personally, my gun is always kept in a locked Gun Vault. Not only for the safety of my young and curious granddaughter but to prevent it from getting stolen should someone break into my house while I am not at home and "'getting into the wrong hands". Oddly enough, the "wrong hands" sort of people seem to have an endless supply of guns. It has nothing to do with us law abiding citizens who own guns. I own three much loved and well cared for dogs. Should I not be allowed to own my dogs because there are dog fighting dog owners in this world? Should I not be allowed to own a car because some people drive drunk and kill or injure people? I find the author's opinions and point of view pretty odd. But the thing is, he is entitled to his opinion as long as his lifestyle doesn't impinge on mine. I made my choice about owning a gun, he is certainly entitled to make his choice.

    Well, you may not even have to shoot the 'bad guy'. Sometimes I think you can 'reason with him' just by showing him what you have. ;) Sometimes fear of being shot is enough to stop someone.

    Stupid is as Stupid Does

    Another example of someone thinking they have something profound to say and showing how stupid they are when they don't.

    I'm sure this individual was also referring to the fact that "if" you are involved in any kind of break in to your home, the police will be there immediately to stop it. Unfortunately, 99% of the time, those professionals arrive AFTER the fact and are only there to do paperwork or, God forbid, draw the lines around your body.

    Last time I checked, the crime rate in this nation was not 0%. Criminals do exist, crimes still happen, and cops can't stop them all. It's great what they are able to do, but do you want to bet your life or the lives of your family there will always be a cop with you at all times?

    The mere utterance of the line above indicates the author is trying to pull the wool over his readers' eyes, or that the author is absolutely stupid. I'm thinking the former is more likely.

    Buying a weapon to use defensively is not premeditated anything; it's an act of wisdom. Disregarding the possibility of being faced with someone who means to kill you is not. The probability may not be high that you will face such a threat, but it is never 0.

    This is further evidence the author is a piece of sh!t. Allow me to explain.

    Those who own handguns don't "run around like John Wayne". They discreetly conceal firearms and do not brandish them. Right there, anyone who carries knows the author is a jerk.

    But then he goes on to say the weapon might get into the hands of the wrong person thus CONFIRMING there are criminals out there who can't be stopped by the cops. So...whose side is the author on?

    Owning a fiream and having the intention of using it to protect oneself and ones family is a personal decision that is not taken lightly. It is an incredible responsibility.

    The sheep that choose to NOT protect themselves will not receive protection from me in the event society crumbles. For the daily stuff, my profession is to try to protect the sheeple.

    only need to see the "we'd all agree" and the citing of the history channel as a source of actual history to determine that this guy is a complete moron. after all its the history channel claiming space aliens are responsible for the fantastic human achievements of the ancient past.

    any resemblence to actual historical events as portrayed on the history channel is purely coincedental.

    His Biblical quotes and spelling leave much to be desired. Pass him some tin foil and leave him alone. We'll need Zombie fodder anyway. ;)

    Hate to break it to this cheesedick but WACO was not a militia uprising it was a religious extremist who though he was the second coming of Christ. I think someone needs to beat this guy with a phone book and open his eyes a little.
