I thank God for our constitutional right to bear arms. If it wasn’t for that, how would we have defended ourselves against today’s shooting at the Empire State building? How would those innocent Sikhs have defended themselves against Wade Michael Page? How would the residents of Aurora Colorado have defended themselves against James Holmes?
It’s thanks to our right to bear arms that all of these near-tragedies were prevented. I praise the Lord for deigning unto us the right to carry concealed weapons and strike down the evil-doers who would cast the first bullet against us. Just think of how many people might have been killed had they not been allowed to defend themselves. Because that’s how that works.
