Consequently, I do not like guns, but neither do I believe that they should become illegal objects which the government can outlaw and seize at will. Guns can be compared with any other object that can be used for both good and bad … a car, if under the control of a careless driver, for instance. Perhaps a fattening, but tasty food that brings overweight to an aging or weak heart could fit the same category. There are medicines, as well, that can bring peace and healing to a sick body, but also are used for satisfying a drug addiction. I am not saying that there should be NO control of these dangerous items, but it must be done according to the freedoms and control of the Constitution of the United States, with little or no changes or deletions. I believe this would allow some sort of control, including licensing.
Uncontrolled gun-use was seen in the ethos of the Hitler-Goering government rule in Germany, which led to WWII in Europe. These two men operated on the premise of “Guns are Power,” often quoted by Hermann Goering, head of the German Air Force during that awful time when those two men were trying to extinguish the Jewish people, and in so doing, go on to subdue the entire European continent.
Had it not been that the freedom-loving United States came to the rescue of God’s people in time to save a remnant of Jews, large enough to resurrect the Israeli nation, there could have been no Jews to survive. The use of men, ammunition, planes, warships and guns, insured that there would be an Israel today to play an important part in our own foreign policy and mutual protection. That, of course, will be subjected to the further use, or threat of use, of guns and ammunition.
