Not at all. I recognize that enough guns are misused, and that guns cause potentially so much more harm than melee weapons, that it's not worth having them so readily available.

Why do so many Christian Fundamentalists in this country support gun ownership anyway? Doesn't it pretty clearly contradict Christian (pacifist)ideology? What weapons did Jesus ever carry around or use, or support the use of? In fact, doesn't Jesus say you should allow yourself to be repeatedly slapped (Matthew 5:39)?

More things to make you question the validity of the bible:

John 18:10.“Simon Peter then, having a sword, drew it and struck the high priest's slave, and cut off his right ear; and the slave's name was Malchus.”

Why would jesus allow someone in his party carry a weapon? Goes against everything that he preached.

And if you were present at the time and see jesus pick up the ear and reattach it, wouldn't you be too flabbergasted to arrest him?

<quoted text>For once I agree with you but the laws here are A LOT tougher than you realise:-

1. You can only own a gun/s if you are a member of a gun club.
2. The gun/s must to be stored at the gun club.
3. Professional shooters can store their guns at home BUT the guns and ammo (and I think the bolts as well ) have to be store in separate locked safes.
4. Dumb-dumbs and AP are just out right banned.
5. All military 'style' weapons banned.
6. Saw off barrels banned.
7. Fully auto banned no matter the clip size
8. Silencers banned

Anything out side of this can get you jail time.

Does it stop people killing each; no but it does make it difficult.
Oneway around the gun issues in the US is just out law ammo.

Guns without bullet are of little use.

Ammo can be bought and used at the rifle range but every bullet accounted for.

But then you're back to if ammo was outlawed then only outlaws would have ammo.

Too tough I'm afraid to get this issue right.

This could help - more police stop the small crimes and you will stop the bigger crime. It's call nipping it in the bud. Don't let the little hoodlums get away with the small stuff and and then there in the system and patterns tend to kick in.

I respect you and Richard's opinions; what would you have us do?

What do we do if the government, as so many have done in the past, becomes too corrupt? With the 99%'er out there, the switch to socialism is not too far in our future.

What will you do during a disaster? Most people that I have seen have handled things quite well, but what happens when someone decides that they need your food more than you?

I don't dwell on these two issue much, not very much at all, but I would like to be ready to handle them, when they happen. If I am not mistaken, history does tell us that they will happen.

You are, from what I can tell from your posts, a very intelligent person; how many governments disarmed their people to better control them? How many of those were what we would call, good governments?

I can only think of three, rather small, island nations. Granted, Australia is about the same size as the contiguous states, but few live too far from the coast. And Australia has about 10% of the U.S.'s population.

Nope. I'm my observation is correct. My skepticism has nothing whatever to do with it.

[QUOTE]Since you took the liberty to use scripture that you don’t believe."

Is the scripture not correct if quoted by an atheist? Lol.

[QUOTE] Let me refer you to Acts 19:13-20 that I do believe.
King James Version (KJV)
13 Then certain of the vagabond Jews, exorcists, took upon them to call over them which had evil spirits the name of the Lord Jesus, saying, We adjure you by Jesus whom Paul preacheth.
14 And there were seven sons of one Sceva, a Jew, and chief of the priests, which did so.
15 And the evil spirit answered and said, Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are ye?
16 And the man in whom the evil spirit was leaped on them, and overcame them, and prevailed against them, so that they fled out of that house naked and wounded.
So I ask you a question,, Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are ye?
In other words it’s saying,“Who in the f*ck are you?”
Did not Jesus get a bull whip and whip some ass one day?
Don’t preach to me Wildride.
"

So Paul was wrong in Galatians? Interesting.
Those who twist Scripture will twist any or all of the Bible, but they will often base their teachings on an obscure or problematic text. Peter acknowledges that some of Paul’s writings are “difficult to understand”(verse 16). These seem to be the starting point for the truth twisters. They begin with a problematic passage, developing their unorthodox doctrines, and then turn to the clear, emphatic texts, denying what they dogmatically teach.

False teachers do not stop with Paul’s writings but distort the Scriptures as a whole. Problem passages written by Paul are only the tip of the iceberg. These perverters of Scripture do not stop here; they are not content unless they have twisted “the rest of the Scriptures” as well. Since the Scriptures agree, then one who sets aside the teaching of one author must, to be consistent, set aside other texts as well.

Those who twist Scripture are described by Peter as “untaught and unstable.” The term “untaught” is rendered “ignorant” by the translators of the King James Version. The two terms “untaught” and “unstable” are introduced by a common article. This seems to indicate these two terms are to be viewed as interrelated. Like “love and marriage,” these terms go together “like a horse and carriage.” In other words, those who are “untaught” are “unstable,” and those who are “unstable” are also “untaught.”
And atheist love to twist Scripture.
So they are by Biblical accounts are indeed "unstable" and "untaught" or "ignorant".
