Christian grandmas don't need rifles. They are taught:or you could be like my grandma just keep an assortment of rifles by your back door lol jeez she must have had atleast 4 there lol
That is very true. One good example of that is the criminal who broke into a warehouse through the skylight. He fell and was injured, and he sued the owners of the warehouse and won $250,000.Its about time grannies fought back!
You wouldn't catch anyone in the UK trying to stop a burgalar anymore, If you so much as lay a finger on a burgalr even in your own home, you can be sued.
Criminals have more rights than victims.
Very important point. Many people die each year at the hand of someone holding their own gun because they did not take the time to seek proper training. Likewise, many people are incarcerated in what would have been a self defence situation because they were ignorant of their own state laws.I am proud that these three women remembered their training and acted as they were instructed under the laws of their respective states in doing so.
Amen.Now your crime rates are out of control because there is no longer a civilian deterrent to crimes against individuals and businesses. We pray for your collective safety.
MWM; I see you're from New Jersey.I despise guns and violence, but I truly hope that one day we will be allowed to protect ourselves.
So it is true. Somebody can own a gun in the US to fire at a burglar?AMEN... Boanerges - thank you for posting that info.
For those persons who have looked at my profile, you know that I was a law enforcement officer for 21 years retiring in 1991 as a tactical team (SWAT) training sergeant. Since then in addition to my Pastoral and Ministry obligations and weather analysis, I teach Personal Defense Firearms classes for women (only) in five US states. Over the past 17 years, three of my graduates have had to use defensive force to stay alive. I am proud that these three women remembered their training and acted as they were instructed under the laws of their respective states in doing so. Linda, Gretchen and Louise are all still with us today because they knew what to do and how to legally protect themselves from the deadly force that was being subjected to them.
For those persons in countries, other than the US, who no longer have the right to Keep and Bear Arms, let me just say that in your countries, as soon the personal law abiding ownership of handguns was taken away, only the criminals had guns. Now your crime rates are out of control because there is no longer a civilian deterrent to crimes against individuals and businesses. We pray for your collective safety.
The 'militia' refered to in that wording does not mean the military - it means individual citizens who are willing and able to gather to protect themselves and their neighbors as conditions warrant when no Military or Law Enforcement personnel are right there to do the protecting.A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed.
1 Timothy 5:8 (NLT)
But those who won’t care for their relatives, especially those in their own household, have denied the true faith. Such people are worse than unbelievers.
you hit the nail on the head there when it comes to crime. you can ban what ever you want people will just find different means to the end. look at canada we have very strict gun controll laws we also have very low gun crime BUT we have much higher crime rates involving weapons such as knives, bats and other such stuff while down in the states where guns are uch easier to come by and have very few restrictions as far as owner ship the gun crime is much higher.MWM; I see you're from New Jersey.
Am I correct that you don't have the right to carry a firearm up there?
Where I live we still have the second amendment right but there are some store owners who place signs on the doors that say "No firearms."
Many people simply refuse to shop in such places, but with respect for the shop keepers personal right to dictate what takes place on their private property.
Like you, I dispise violence, but I stop short of placing blame on guns, or knives, or rocks or sticks.
Violence is the result of a fallen and sinful nature, I don't think government intervention, or bans will have any impact on the reduction of crime.
