Also has anyone on here been tempted to do something they'd hate due to their enemies?

You talking about Sutherland Springs church? Watson just did a video, can't help feel he's actually a bit hypocritical with the media reporting on it.

Prayers are with the church and people affected. :(

I hate to say this but Christians must take gun safety classes and arm themselves and maybe even buy body armor too.We should expect things like this to continue because the left uses these kinds of things to take our guns away so that we cannot defend ourselves and our loved ones.

I think a well armed society is a polite society. Would you start a fight with someone if you knew that 9/10 people knew Karate? Would a terrorist commit mass murder if they knew 9/10 people were armed?

It's always going to happen because there is always going to be evil in this world ... but if more people got comfortable with guns it would be stopped much sooner. A well armed society is the lesser of two evils.


I'm getting a CCP with a "Seecamp". It's a tiny powerful 6 shooter. Barely noticable with a sneaky pete fake cellphone belt clip or thigh holster. noby ever knows its there., I feel bad about doing this though for some reason. My conscious feels bad about it. I should not have to walk around like this. It doesnt feel right. It does not feel Christian. Feels like living in fear. Live by the sword kind of thing.

You should'nt feel that way unless you have criminal intentions with it,and I don't think you do.You are probably hoping you never have to use it to defend yourself and it would be good to pray you never have to.However,if something like this happens again you'll have a much better chance at defending yourself than if you did'nt have it.This is not going out looking for a fight,that is what those on the left use them for.No,this is for self-defense and only that.None of these mass shootings were done by NRA members,none of them.It has all been from those on the left.

I guess there aren't many Desmond Dosses here like in Hacksaw Ridge. :P

Why should one feel bad about prudently arming themselves in areas where there is significant danger of robbery or worse?

What did Jesus say about arming oneself with a sword when encountering potentially dangerous situations?

"He said to them, “But now let the one who has a moneybag take it, and likewise a knapsack. And let the one who has no sword sell his cloak and BUY one." (Luke 22:36)
