nawlins72 As I posted below: (John 18:10-11) . . .Then Simon Peter, as he had a sword, drew it and struck the slave of the high priest and cut his right ear off. The name of the slave was Malchus. 11 Jesus, however, said to Peter: “Put the sword into [its] sheath. The cup that the Father has given me, should I not by all means drink it?. . . If Jesus didn't approve of weapons, then why was Peter carrying one?

Where did I argue against what was written in the Bible, 08? Care to show us?

You were obviously arguing with Giles logical conclusions of his quotes from the Bible.

No, I was arguing that claiming "guns are OK, because Jesus said x, y and z" is a fallacy of argumentation. Again, this is basic logic.

Jesus said we should sell our robe to buy a state of the art weapon. He did not state that we were to start chopping off arms and legs. But the implication of having weapon is that it is for protection.

Guns, as written about in the 2d Amendment, are weapons for defense and protection.

As most of you know, during a football game last week Bob Costas lectured us po’ goofy Americans about the evils of a “gun culture” and how we need to evolve away from being obsessed with firearms. As soon as I heard that drivel roll off Mr. C’s tongue I ordered another 30/06, a sweet Walther PPK and a custom .416 Rigby turnbolt. Cowabunga, Bob. Thanks for reminding me to buy more guns.

First off, let me help you, Robert: Guns do not kill people. Dads with daughters do. Oh, and BTW, Planned Parenthood kills a lot of people...
