The school shooting in Florida opened up, once again, talk about gun control. The Tenth Amendment Center's article below addresses this and asks the question, "Why do we have to re-defend our rights every time someone commits a crime?" It's ridiculous. No matter who violates the law, we still must allow the people to bear arms. Even more so as these kinds of shooting increase.
I say we need to encourage families to take responsibility for their own family members who are showing signs of mental illness or violence. Just as parents wouldn't allow their three year old child to play with a gun, people need to watch out for any family members who show signs of not being able to handle certain dangerous things--whether its cars, stoves, or guns. It's not the job of lawmakers to protect you and your family. That is your responsibility.
The more decision-making power we give to the government through laws, the less freedom we have. Don't wait for the government to pass a law, take responsibility for your own life and the safety of your family. The thing is, God doesn't expect us to do this alone. He means for us to trust in Him to give us the wisdom, strength, and resources we need to take care of our families. He also means for us to have a family of believers for support.
Let's stick together in support of freedom.
Thank you for your diligence to answer America's call to prayer!
