It's been very interesting to speak to the customers who have come into the gun store these past weeks. Contrary to what anyone who knows me may think, I've been doing a lot of listening. The firearms have been flying off of the shelves in record numbers and I hear things like, " I've never owned a gun before, but I just have the feeling I should get one now," and, "After the way this election turned out, I just don't trust the government anymore," and, "At the rate we are loosing our freedoms, this is one I refuse to give up."
Now don't get me wrong, I firmly believe that an armed populous are citizens and unarmed people are subjects, but no matter how well we are armed and no matter what our resolve, our ultimate trust and dependence needs to be in our Lord.
I have encouraged every new gun owner to get signed up for training classes so that they can learn how to be knowledgeable and safe with this new responsibility they are taking on. There are few things that I can think of that would be more dangerous than a bunch of Sheep shooting at every shadow. Well...maybe one thing, Wolves that prey on Sheep who refuse to do nothing, and Sheepdogs who allow it.
