Guns and church is a strange combination even given recent events.
I mean is there anywhere else that's less appropriate to take a weapon?
Maybe it's just me after all i dont hail from the US.

Whilst we're talking Latin - no doubt you're aware of the Fasces in your House and also at Lincolns statue
Unlike the American interpretation of the fasces as a symbol of strength through unity, the Italian fascists identified with the power and brutality also inherent in the fasces' meaning

I agree with the OP on guns, but I think most public places like churches, supermarkets, malls, nightclubs, concerts, ball games, schools, in America because of all the guns, should have armed and trained security personal.
It might be good to make it mandatory
People pull the trigger but its the Gun that sends a projectile at the target at upward of 700Mph.
Most people simply don't have the stomach for it or, but pulling that trigger? Well the statistics and numbers dont lie.

I am sure he is however he is not here now and he is not participating in this thread so unless you have some credentials you can show us you should probably stop trying to speak in his name / for him.
Also you should brush up on your religion , particularly the part that says only God can judge man.
Again unless you can show us credentials you are not God either.
To see a symbol and assume its meaning is the same is short sighted dont you think?
