“When a strong man, fully armed, guards his own house, his possessions are safe.” – Luke 11:21 (NIV)

“Or again, how can anyone enter a strong man’s house and carry off his possessions unless he first ties up the strong man? Then he can plunder his house.” – Matthew 12:29 (NIV)

Like the Old Testament better?
“They chose new gods; then was war in the gates: was there a shield or spear seen among forty thousand in Israel?” – Judges 5:8

Do you remember “Thou shalt not have any other gods before me”? With which you are doing with your worship of your guns.
Or, “Thou shalt not kill”. Which didn’t say in defense of my house, my possessions, or my life. The commandment just says what it says.

Signing a petition such as this just makes sense. Our legislators only respond to a social problem with courage and vision when the ballot box is in question. If you still beleive in the democratic process, you go grass roots. Right, Tea Party members?????

And yes, guns and violence ARE a social problem. If the faith based community everywhere got fully behind this movement, change is possible. So, what do you say, Christians? Those of other faiths? Sorry folks, but I will never believe having a gun makes anyone safe (and the NRA is just CYA on this one).
