A dipstick asks a stupid question.
If you don’t have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one.
But I ask you: even if it was, even if guns were banned tomorrow, why should we be so afraid? If you know and love Jesus and are going to spend eternity in Heaven with him, why does the idea of not having guns anymore scare you so much?
I could imagine it going something like this.
-appears before the Judge-
You. Stupid. Fuck. I gave you the greatest possible gift: LIFE. And you threw it away. You passively gave in to evil. AND you left your children defenseless against evil. You let evil triumph and destroy the greatest gift.
I/WE tried to explain this to you. That bit about “he who lives by the sword dies by the sword”? That meant actively AGGRESSING against others unnecessarily; a life of violence.
I/WE also told you “if you don’t have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one.” That was so you would have defensive tools to fight evil.
You know what? You SURRENDERED to evil; evil can have you.

Eeeee….! -scream fades into distance-
