A Few Thoughts on Guns

The Fear of Self Defense

The left, in it’s full bore, fully automatic attack on firearms, has slipped it’s ropes — probably unknown to them, their true disrespect and disregard for human life are showing through. Take this little gem, for instance: In a new tact to dissuade American gun owners from purchasing AR-15s, Vice President Joe Biden told an Facebook [...] [...]

Misunderstanding Turning the Other Cheek

The main problem is that Christianity is a suicide pact – assured destruction of any society build upon Christians norms and beliefs. Christianity only survived by becoming ‘un-Christian’ and more like Islam. The Christian Holy Wars (Crusades) under the banner of Christ instead of loving the enemies and turning the other cheek is an example [...] [...]

Loving Your Enemies: Considering Luke 6:27

“But I say to you who hear, Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who abuse you. To one who strikes you on the cheek, offer the other also, and from one who takes away your cloak do not withhold your tunic either. Give [...] [...]

Christians and Self Defense

Wayne Grudem has an excellent outline on Christians and self defense here, as well as an mp3 of a class where he teaches through the outline.

In the old times, they did it with coats and banners and things, which is why the British wore bright red, and the French, blue. The fog of war is what we call it today, outside the intelligence [...] [...]

One Reason for the 2nd Amendment

There is another reason, to keep the government in check—but this isn’t something people like to talk about in polite company any longer. Note how the two reasons are intertwined with one another; both reasons relate to protecting life and liberty from encroachment from all sources. [...]

Drawing the Line

From the July/August American Handgunner: Every responsible person who carries a gun has given some thought to how and when they would use it. The Marine is no exception. He has given up his money, but long beforehand, he has determined he will not be taken at gunpoint into the back of a robber premises and [...] [...]

Mortal Fear

Some time back, I observed a long email exchange between various folks on a political mailing list. This paragraph, embedded in one of the emails, caught my attention, because it describes the modern condition so completely. There’s also the “good” people that occasionally loose it: it’s better they don’t have a gun in their hands in [...] [...]
