Guns: A Right to Bear Arms
Seeking God and truth on behalf of America!
God is called The Lord of Hosts. He is the Ruler of armies. Yes, there is a spiritual war going on which He calls us to engage in, but just as everything spiritual effects the natural, this war shows up in the natural realm as well. Jesus taught to turn the other cheek, and to love and pray for our enemies, yet God instructed His people to fight for the land He promised them. There is a time to fight for God's purposes to be accomplished. There is a time to fight evil so good can remain. There is a time to defend the innocent and protect those who cannot protect themselves. This doesn't always mean war and bloodshed, but it could, especially when you talk about nations.
In America, the main purpose in giving American's the right to bear arms, was not for hunting, and not even for protection from criminals, as much as it was to protect the people from an out of control government. The Second amendment of the U.S. Constitution says:
"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."
A militia is a military force of the civilian population. Our founders considered a well regulated militia as being necessary to the security of a free State. It was, and is, a protection against a government who tries to take away the freedom of the people. Not only that, but the right of individual people to keep and bear arms is not to be taken away either. The more the government tries to restrict and control gun ownership, the more concerned the American people should be. You don't have to have a gun if you don't want to, but you don't want to restrict gun ownership for those who do.
