Gun Owners: Should We Listen to Bob Costas or Jesus Christ?

His context is perfect! Self Defense on their trip was Jesus intent! What were swords used for? God told the Iraelites to carry a sword in one hand and work with their other hand to rebuild the Temple! Why Does God(Jesus) expect us to Defend the Lives He Gave Us? To Show Ourselves Good Stewards of what He gives Us! Life! CARRY ON!

jhaman: I agree that a Biblical case can be made for the right each one of us has to self-defense. However, I think you have extrapolated from what Yahweh told the Israelites returning from Babylon (vis a vis rebuilding the Temple) to all people in all times and places. Not sure that is justified. Moreover, from a security perspective, 2 swords would not be enough to protect Yeshua's followers. Finally, just after this, He ordered Peter to put his sword down.

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...
