When the second amendment was ratified, guns held one bullet. One.

59 people dead; 527 injured; 12 minutes.



Blessed are the peacemakers,
    for they will be called children of God.
(Matthew 5:9)

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.

  1. Gun control doesn’t control the hearts of men. Men will use another instrument if they don’t utilize a gun. The gun, however, is a powerful tool to equalize and provide a victim or protector the ability to stop/prevent great harm and violence (Most often without needing to fire the weapon) – therefore literally aiding in “making peace” where peace would not be. It is the great equalizer.

    Gun violence is greater in America, but not violence. When the moral and cultural fabric is torn apart in any community, this is what we see.

    While possibly some criminal acts may not have happened or have been as great without guns, the net of good brought about by a free and armed public is incalculably greater. Our hope, however, should not be in our weapons, or lack thereof, but in depth of character and faith in God.

    “Men have forgotten God, that’s why all this has happened.” Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn. (former atheist and communist — after USSR disarmed the public and mass murdered millions).
