as i posted the above links on my facebook page, almost immediately a topic came up :: gun control.
a friend of mine suggested the answer to the shootings is the concealed carry. despite the fact that i grew up in a home with guns (an undisclosed family member has several vaults full of shotguns, hunting rifles, pistols, laser sights on semi-automatics and automatic weapons) and enjoy shooting myself, as a follower of jesus i have concerns with that response.
is the answer to violence more violence?
what does jesus say?
