GUN CONTROL?
 

 Constitution of the United States - Amendment II

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State,
the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

As soon as Amendment II is overthrown, Amendment I will go as well as the rest.

Amendment I

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

The following are excerpts from the article:

"What Does The Bible Say About Gun Control?"

http://www.gunowners.org/fs9902.htm

by Larry Pratt Executive Vice-President Gun Owners Foundation

The underlying argument for gun control seems to be that the availability of guns causes crime. By extension, the availability of any weapon would have to be viewed as a cause of crime. What does the Bible say about such a view?

Perhaps we should start at the beginning, or at least very close to the beginning -- in Genesis 4. In this chapter we read about the first murder. Cain had offered an unacceptable sacrifice, and Cain was upset that God insisted that he do the right thing. In other words, Cain was peeved that he could not do his own thing.

Cain decided to kill his brother rather than get right with God. There were no guns available, although there may well have been a knife. Whether it was a knife or a rock, the Bible does not say. The point is, the evil in Cain's heart was the cause of the murder, not the availability of the murder weapon.

God's response was not to ban rocks or knives, or whatever, but to banish the murderer. Later (see Genesis 9:5-6) God instituted capital punishment, but said not a word about banning weapons.

The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is,  as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government."  -- Thomas Jefferson

Liberty is a well-armed lamb denying enforcement of the vote."

The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time, with the blood of
patriots and tyrants" -- Thomas Jefferson
