Most Evangelical Leaders Back Gun Control?

Evangelical Christian leaders in America have expressed their support for stricter gun regulations following December's tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., where 26 people were fatally shot.

In a poll conducted by the National Association of Evangelicals (NAE), 73 percent of church leaders agreed that there needs to be stricter gun regulations, in hopes that tragedies, such as the ones that occurred in Newtown, can be prevented or minimized in the future.

"Evangelicals are pro-life and deeply grieve when any weapons are used to take innocent lives," said Leith Anderson, President of the NAE. "The evangelical leaders who responded to the NAE survey support the Second Amendment right to bear arms but also want our laws to prevent the slaughter of children." ...

Since there is no biblical basis for owning weapons then couldn't the constitution be amended? I'm sure. Plus, there is nothing in the constitution that protects the ability to track firearms when purchased, or limit the number and types of firearms a person owns.

...I think that this loophole should be closed so that proper decisions can be made as to who has proven themselves responsible enough to be a gun owner.

We are the militia and the right to bear arms is our right and protection against potentially over agressive and oppressive governments. That was then, this is now; in addition to that particular purpose, we now need to arm oursevles against Satan's armies. We have to be able to protect ourselves; we must be able to protect our children. Government has run amuck with their rules and regulations that expand far out of bounds. Gun control will keep guns out of the hands of honest citizens, giving the government and criminals full control which is the power they crave. Arm every citizen and watch the crime rate dwindle. Yes, there are accidents, but there are accidents with cars, knives, and booze. People get killed with baseball bats, razor blades, fists, lamps, rocks, whatever. The VP said that gun control works if it saves just one life...what a bum that guy is. Where has he been before this anyway?
Now, I'm not sure there is a legitimate use for rocket launchers, bazookas, or assault rifles but I firmly believe that every responsible citizen should be armed to the hilt...especially in todays Godless age where life has become a meaningless commodity.
I'm up in the air on gun shows where anyone and everyone can buy a weapon
without any sort of background check. I

Will, not to remove the rhetorical force of your question, but i believe federal law (the "no child left alive act") makes an exception for private property. However, in order to leave your property, your gun has to be "securely encased" until you're outside the "safe zone".

The Feds know Gun Free Zones don't work. Otherwise, they'd make the white house and Capitol building gun free zones and get rid of the armed guards. Don't hold your breath.

Walter from Alabama writes: Why not just make guns illegal to bring anywhere near a school?

A lot of schools have a no gun policy.
Thats why killers go there, there's no one there to stop them.
There should be someone there to stop them.

It boils down to this: the kids are UNPROTECTED , easy pickings for any nut with a knife, hammer, ball bat, gun etc. Force must be met by superior force. Herod killed two years and below, against an unarmed people.
What if you live next door to a school and Herod wants to kill your baby?

Amen, Will. Talk like a free man long enough and someone here will suggest that you be watched by the FBI. I know from experience.

Jim, who said anything about making a killer out of every man? Again, please stop hijacking the Bible to force your anti-gun agenda on everyone else. If you don't like guns, don't buy one.

No, and it was the 14th Amendment that came up the Supreme Court used, to back the idea to make a killer of every man on the street. If it was dependent on the 2nd Amendment then guns of all varieties would be limited to National Guards. I think a lot of Posse Comitatus (organization) types have infiltrated the Government like a fifth column for the NRA, or vice-versa.

I would think many pastors outside of this rather goofy organization would want some gun control enacted (No, I haven't spoken to any of mine.) because,

Matthew 19
18 He said^ to Him, "Which ones?" And Jesus said, "YOU SHALL NOT COMMIT MURDER; YOU SHALL NOT COMMIT ADULTERY; YOU SHALL NOT STEAL; YOU SHALL NOT BEAR FALSE WITNESS;
19 HONOR YOUR FATHER AND MOTHER; and YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF."
20 The young man said^ to Him, "All these things I have kept; what am I still lacking?"
21 Jesus said to him, "If you wish to be complete, go and sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you shall have treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me."---NASB

There sure are a lot of people out their want to use the ultimate deterrent who are suppose to be Chr

Last week the vast majority of Evangelicals read their Bible and supported the Second Ammendment. This week they read the exact same Bible and back gun control.

They back gun control until they get robbed or something else. Law abiding American citizens should have the right to bear arms. Look at history, pastors fought in the revolutionary war. The masses shouldn't have to suffer because criminals and the mentally disturbed commit crimes. The govt should be more concerned with keeping weapons out of the hands of criminals and the mentally disturbed instead of making the masses suffer. This regime is hell bent on taking all your rights away . Look, some pastors who speak out on homosexuality are charged with hate crimes. That's just one of million examples of how we are being slowly denied rights while our heads are buried in the sand.

Most evangelical leaders are servants of Caesar via their 501c3 church incorporation. That they would be favorable towards guns in the state's hands and out of the people's hands is not surprising.
I agree fully with what you wrote. Why God's people would think it is right to partner with the government is beyond me. I often refer to "most" of our church leaders as hirelings because of that and other issues I have with the professing church. Good comment!
