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

Arguments from authority, as Giles and many conservatives attempt, are poor substitutes for logical reasoning. I doubt Giles has ever read any works on logical fallacies or a basic introduction to logic, as one or both would assist him in making justifiable propositions. Saying "Jesus says so" is not a compelling argument.

Even Satan believes in Jesus... and trembles.

Why would he tremble? By your own texts, God himself allows him free reign to cause all manner of evils in the world, without the punishment that he so lovingly saves for humans.

Because, having been so close to God, he knows what the future holds for him and his followers. Satan even know his game is lost. But he is still given time to bring many with him.

Also, the period between Christ's first and second advents is what historical, biblical Christianity teaches as Satan's 'little season' (Rev. 20). He's bound, but not powerless. Hence, he can and does, within limits, prowl about as a roaring lion looking for whom he may devour.

In other words, the battle now waged is that of Satan against the Church.

Satan trembles because he knows his fate is still the eternal damnation for resisting and attempting to usurp the power of GOD.

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...
