I wonder how Jesus Christ would view his house of sanctuary, peace and praise to God becoming a place where implements of death were to be displayed and also worshiped in a way?
...we're not ashamed to say that there was a strong belief in God and firearms
Then why are they bringing them into Gods house

"And He said to them, "When I sent you without money bag, knapsack, and sandals, did you lack anything?"
So they said, "Nothing."
Then He said to them, "But now, he who has a money bag, let him take it, and likewise a knapsack; and he who has no sword, let him sell his garment and buy one. For I say to you that this which is written must still be accomplished in Me: 'And He was numbered with the transgressors.' For the things concerning Me have an end."
So they said, "Lord, look, here are two swords."
And He said to them, "It is enough." " (Luke 22:35-38, NKJV)

Doesn't the Bible condemn murder
Just because your church and your god and your interpretations and your mindset say one thing doesnt mean any other church or any other individual shares your outlook.
[God] called David, "a man after mine own heart." David was a man of war.
I read of the Roman Centurion being converted to Christianity. A man of war. He was not compelled to change his vocation.
So those of you with artificial sensitivities, they are yours, and unscriptural.
So please. Get off our backs.
I hope I never, ever have to use a gun again...
But I'll do so in a skinny minute to defend myself - or defend another....
...And I'll meet my Maker with fear and trembling.
But not on that account.
