Am I the only one that finds it disturbing that a majority of evangelicals are all about owning guns? I find it a bit of a difficulty that you can be both pro-life and anti-gun control. That seems like an oxymoron to me. It’s as if we think it’s a mortal sin to kill an unborn child in the womb but if that child grows up to become a robber than I want to make sure I have every right to put a bullet in that persons head so he doesn’t steal my flat screen TV. Pro-life… so long as that life doesn’t mess with me or mine.
Now I know what new people to my blog are going to think. They’ll roll their eyes and say, “Well, he lives in Southern California. Of course he thinks the government should restrict my right to buy a Glock so I can put a cap in someone whenever the Lord lays that poor sucker on my doorstep. He’s just another one of those California liberals.” You’d be wrong. I’ve been all about gun control for ages. I’m sure I made tons of my friends in Michigan roll their eyes. Personally, I liked to save my sentiment for the churches annual celebration of killing anything with four legs, the wild game banquet.(We both know Jesus hated Bambi.)
Am I the only Christian in the United States asking why others aren’t demanding their congressman to better control the sale of handguns, automatic weapons, and other non-sporting weapons designed to kill human beings? At least make every single handgun owner go through some sort of training. We make people take a test to drive a car! But buy a Colt .45? You just need to be a certain age and never committed a felony. God bless America, pass the ammo!
