How can this man call himself a Christian?
What happened to "Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you."?
How can you claim to follow Jesus Christ if you encourage people to harm & kill?

Black Preacher States Loudly That His Gun Is Important to His Church and Community...
The Reverend Kenn Blanchard started a national gun club for people of color called the Tenth Cavalry Gun Club “the Buffalo Soldiers”. Today it is known as the Maryland Tenth Cavalry Gun Club.
The Reverend has decried that 20 thousand gun laws passed have not stopped crime, and that people of color are among the most unarmed, most vulnerable and most subjugated to crime people in America.
Reverend Blanchard has worked with all the pro rights organizations, the National Rifle Association, the Law Enforcement Alliance of America, the Second Amendment Foundation, the CATO Institute, Gun Owners of America, and the list continues.
The Reverend Blanchard teaches his parishioners that gun control is racism. He has said, "Gun control is racist. Unless you learn the truth for yourself, you’ll always be a victim. The gun issue is larger than ammunition types, magazine capacities, or gun trade shows."
The Reverend wrote the book 'Black Man With a Gun.'
That author Kenneth Blanchard's book is steeped in history becomes apparent in his very first chapter when he speaks, not only of the Buffalo Soldiers and the Black Panther Party, but to the lesser known, Deacons of Defense, Mary Fields, and Ben Hodges. Throughout his book, "Black Man With A Gun," he continually refers to and explains the historical basis for African American gun ownership
The Reverend Blanchard has easily admixed Guns and God: "It is easy to be a Christian and advocate gun ownership in principle. It is the application and perceptions that are tough. Most of the people that are against me don’t understand. I want to save lives, stop senseless deaths, and stop the violence but seek a different approach. Training and education save lives. I know this to be true. I learned early that you can’t do the same thing every day and expect a different result."

I would suggest that a central element is about power.
Think of it this way - if you decided that the UK government was doing something wrong, what could you do about it? If the Queen did away with elections and took back direct feudal control. What could you do about it? Wave your fists? Use angry words? That is hardly going to worry the soldiers waving thier loaded guns back at you. Power rests entirely with the people who are able to exercise the most influence - in other words, the people who can force you at gunpoint to do what you are told.
