How do we, as Christians, reconcile our support of the Second Amendment right to Keep and Bear Arms??

Jesus taught forgiveness, turning the other cheek, etc.   The Bible says in at least two places I’m aware of:  “Be angry but sin not.”

How do we, Christians who own guns and carry them (legally with a CCW license), reconcile possibly having to kill someone in our own defense, or in defense of our families, with the teachings of Jesus?

One thing that comes to mind is the “turn the other cheek” passage.  Fact is, in that day and age, it was considered “not manly” to strike someone with your left hand.  So, if a Christian was struck by a Roman, and then turned their other cheek to him, so that if there was another slap that had to be left handed, it would be an insult to the Roman himself, and this was a way of civil disobedience, not Jesus telling us to let people just do as they will to us!  (Attention JB: Do you know who Martin Luther King, Jr. was?  He preached civil disobedience, like Jesus did).  Feel free to research that for yourself if you like, but trust me, I do know what I am talking about in this case 🙂 LOL

But really, WHAT IF?  

What if we have to shoot someone?  

What if they die as a result?  Is that murder?  Not by the law of the land it isn’t.  Is it therefore not a sin?  If it is a sin, would YOU commit it to save yourself or your family?

How does that mesh with the teachings in the Bible?

Please comment and tell me what you think about this!

God Bless and be With You ALL 🙂

Explaining The Obvious To The NRA: Fewer Guns Mean Fewer Gun Homicides

This “study” is ridiculously biased IMO. Will post a “Reply” to point some stuff out on this article that is so thin one could breathe wrong and rip a hole right through such a “paper” article….

Fewer Guns Mean Fewer Gun Homicides

“About one-third of the gun-homicide decline since 1993 is explained by the fall in gun ownership.”

Increases in gun ownership lead to a higher gun-homicide rate and legislation allowing citizens to carry concealed weapons does not reduce crime, according to a recent NBER Working Paper by Mark Duggan. After peaking in 1993, gun homicides in the United States dropped 36 percent by 1998, while non-gun homicides declined only 18 percent. In that same period, the fraction of households with at least one gun fell from more than 42 percent to less than 35 percent. Duggan finds that about one-third of the gun-homicide decline since 1993 is explained by the fall in gun ownership. The largest declines occur in areas with the largest reductions in firearm ownership.

Previous research on the relationship between gun ownership and crime has been impeded by a lack of reliable…
