I like your wholehearted earnestness on the issue (not sating the others who answered are dishonest. Just the way you put it...)

Bad guys? Who will give the bad guys the gun?
Nobody would give them the guns. They would steal them or buy them on the black market kind of like illegal drugs. Remember banning does not get rid of guns, just makes them illegal to own and "bad guys" usually do things that are illegal.

England is England. Australia is Australia.

Let the cops do their job in the US.
The police cannot be everywhere all the time. Why would they need guns either if God would protect them, or why would we need the police if God would protect us?

What? Christ wasn't talking about having a sword, when he told them to go buy a sword? Uhhh, ok Classik, lol. What's your interpretation then? What did He mean? And when the disciples said yes Lord we have two swords here...what do you suppose they were talking about? boy oh boy, i just have no idea, lol. :lol

Why did He rebuke Peter and heal the guys ear? I can think of 3 reasons off the top of my head. Jesus's time had come and He didn't want violence or a perception of sin to be associated with His arrest, He wanted to show gods power (of healing) to bring glory to His father, and His time had come to be crucified and pay the price for our sin that we may live. So why fight His way out of it? that's what He came to do, to be killed. You don't think that Jesus couldn't have taken them if He desired to? Ha! But that wasn't His agenda. So in summary...times and seasons brother.

No, you didn't outright say it, but you heavily imply it all over the place in your posts. In fact, early in the thread, you said that you're here to vilify guns, and so you concentrate on denigrating people who own guns and try to associate it with a lack of faith in God. So...yeah. I have pretty good comprehension brother, and that's what you're basically saying. That it baffles you that anyone can own a gun is...a difficulty that you have and is neither here nor there for the discussion.

how much protection has gun use offered? uh, well, having a gun has saved me, my (ex) wife, and my friends butt a few times. I had two guys try to rob me and my wife when she was late term pregnant and they could have harmed our unborn baby very easily (until I put a stop to it), Me and my friend were attacked by a big dog once which i turned with a warning shot into the grass, and I thwarted an attack and attempted home invasion upon myself a few years back...so I can personally say that guns have offered me and my family very much protection.

I prefer battling principalities also. They are much easier to deal with than people. One mention of Jesus's name and they run. Human people will laugh and keep coming.

And so now you try to equate gun ownership with bomb ownership huh? So what are guns now Classik? A gateway killing device and when you buy a 22 then, it's only a matter of time before you're building bombs? Bwahahahahaha! you crack me up brother! That is extreme thinking and...sounds...well, let's just say that it's absurd and detracts from your credibility towards any type of serious discussion of this issue, lol. :rofl2
he was to get a metaphysical sword. just wow. bow out classic, just agree to disagree.

He's obviously baiting you guys! I can see him sitting back and rolling in laughter at all the uproar he causes! I'm not complaining, mind you. I know there is no way he's this ignorant of how the world works. Watching his responses has been giving me a good laugh for a few days now too. Thank you!

The job of the cops is to show up after a crime is committed, count the dead, and write their reports. They do it very well.

As far as protecting myself and my family...ultimately it's me, and no one else. So as far as taking our guns away, you can forget it.

My point isnt to disarm the police. My point is on why everyone wants to own a gun. Why not the police alone? It is just that the govt has not given it their all to keep guns away...from the reach of the bad guys.

What does a kid need a gun for? Practising?

cough, the military has its automatic weapons stolen from trains, the average response time for cop to respond to a stabbing or any call 30 mintues in the county here and the city, 3 minutes. if an artery is hit. death will occur within 5 minutes. so trying to tell them where you are while stopping the bleeding and defending yourself may be bit difficult.

Mama must have changed her mind. :chin

So the only reason you wish for the entire universe to own a gun is: some nuts are really gonna attack one day? What a faith.
