I think it is disgusting that decent Christians preachers should be fired upon while doing the work that Jesus Christ asked them to do.

It just goes to show how demonic people are that they should wield guns against peaceable Christian's trying to spread the good news.

no gareth it is not that way,, they have been told several times not to return!!!!!! so go play at the garden. you have no clue and no understanding of what this family is going through then to have them keep showing up at their door. maybe if you are jw.. many doubt it... if you were this is a good discussion for the elders and the bug rich men in NY to discuss.

maybe it is time they just knock on other jw homes and leave everyone alone with their own religion.

What can one expect from a world controlled by satan, i am surprised that they dont build collosiums in every country and throw all the Jw,s to the lions so people can cheer and jeer the JW,s and laugh at them. They could make a new reality show about it. Its what the world wants. Because the world hates truth. The world is made up of lovers of pleasures rather than lovers of God, just like God said they would be,haughty, blasphemers, having no natural affection. They shove Jesus,s teachings aside at every opportunity they find for personal pleasure or gain. Then they wonder why this world is so sick.

A man who fires a gun because two UNARMED CHRISTIAN WOMEN did not leave his property fast enough is demonic.

No real man would pull a gun on unarmed women. What a coward!

It is quite telling that Jehovah's Witnesses have the women and children do most of their dirty work, and put them directly in harms way.

Your words hold no value in them. How easy it is for a mortal to reason falsly in their hearts and minds and then believe it out of bigotry mostly. How many i have met that claim to be christian and hate their brother just because their skin is a different color. that is a sickness of the heart. But God says to those-- If one cannot love his brother who he can see, then it is impossible for that one to love God who he cannot see.) One can easily reason they love God but he is telling you different. As well these reasoned their love and faith falsly,and as very valuable, but their jaws will be dropped by Jesus words= Matt 7: 21-23

Sounds like this man really needs to know Jehovah...seeing he has all these problems perhaps God was showing him mercy by sending people with the information "That everyone who calls on the name of Jehovah will be saved"
Because he really does need to be saved...and then perhaps God allowed him to shoot at the women, because they don't really believe the message they go to give.

DEVOTION?
It shows what kind of people they were AFTER he fired. Then she the wife says: "This is a Catholic home," "This is a devout home." The definition for devotion is: profound dedication; consecration.
So my question is: What are these people dedicated to so profoundly that come out like a lion and start shooting a group of persons that only want to talk about the Bible?
I we examine carefully the example of Paul in the book of Acts chapter 8 & 9, it is clearly understandable that devotion to God does not necessarily mean that God approves your actions. Paul was a devoted person and in doing so he persecuted a lot of Christians. Thatís why preaching must continue Mat, 24:14

Sounds like the man has problems-i doubt there is anyone who doesnt have problems in todays world-- but the fact remains there are laws- only a coward would shoot at a woman.

it is true that of over seven and one half million Witnesses, more women are involved in preaching the good news of the kingdom just as Psalm 68:11 says would be the case but it is the responsibility of all men and women who claim to be Christian to obey the second greatest commandment and also Jesus command recorded at Matthew 28:19,20. Its just that fewer men are willing to accept responsibility having been mislead to believe that it is unmanly. But as in Jesus case, it takes a real man to accept Christian responsibility and do the work that Jesus instructed his people to do even in the face of threats and persecution.

Why dont you reason with truth- like the men work and provide for their families and have less time than the women have.

It is what it is. women usually have more to do than men who work come home watch tv go fishing on weekends. not talking about real Christian men.

Ok, they guy was at the end of his rope, but it was NOT ok to pull out a gun and fire, even at the ground. He will now answer for that. He is being held accountable for his wrong actions.

The witnesses were, after being told to leave now tresspassing. They will not have to answer for that. They will not have to take responsibility for their actions.

Happy now?

Here is what you do, if you decide to open the door, which you don't have to and regardless what they think on the other side it does not mean you are 'hiding'. Tell them, I am not interested, if they persist, say I was clear I am not interested. Close the door. If you want you can say do not come here again, put me on your list, better have two papers made up saying you are asking them to not come back and ask them to sign one. Then...when they come back, don't answer the door just call the police and tell them they are tresspassing, then they can be held accountable and will get better at respecting HHs wishes. Even if they are gone, there are very good records kept that say who worked what area what day.
But do not pull out your gun or threaten in any way. Just make it clear that any further visits will be considered tresspassing.

It is not trespassing to go on someones property,
and not all people feel harassed by someone who wants to talk to you about God's word.

Put a No Trespassing sign on your property or one that says no Jehovah's witnesses. Anyone who threatens a witness with a gun will be arrested, and if you shoot at Jehovah's witnesses, they may press charges for attempted murder. I would.
