    If Jesus was carrying a Colt .45

    He would still be alive today.

    Jesus wouldn't have carried a firearm. The whole point was to die.

    Christians say to "be like Christ," until it doesn't suit them.
    I don't mind watching the OC-Community (tea party 2.0's, who have hijacked the OC-Community) cannibalize itself. I do mind watching OC dragged through the gutter. OC is an exercise of A Right. I choose to not OC; I choose to not own firearms. I choose to leave the OC-Community to it's own self-inflicted injuries, and eventual implosion. Carry on...

    I don't say that. Talk about a blanket statement.

    Sorry about that. Not all Christians say, "be like Christ."

    It would be far more accurate to say that Christians are to do their utmost to follow His teachings. One of those teachings is found in Luke 22:36, He said to them, "But now if you have a purse, take it, and also a bag; and if you don't have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one."

    I would strongly suspect that His advice in this day and age would not be to buy a sword.
    "Happiness is a warm shotgun!!"
    "I am neither a pessimist nor a cynic. I am, rather, a realist."

    Well, I suppose He wouldn't advise buying a Beretta--Italian origins and all.

    Perhaps a Desert Eagle--Isreali origin?

    Or, maybe a 1911--Browning/Mormon origin?
    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    And a strawman.

    Anyway, Jesus IS alive today. I kinda like the way He did things. His method means that I can live forever. If He hadn't died, I would have to.

    Thank you for the liberal perspective.
    "I would rather be exposed to the inconveniences attending too much liberty than to those attending too small a degree of it." - Thomas Jefferson.

    It is AFAIK original to me. Compromise is failure on the installment plan, particularly when dealing with so intractable an opponent as ignorance. - Nightmare

    I've met a Jesus who carried a .45.
    I am not anti Cop I am just pro Citizen.

    U.S. v. Minker, 350 US 179, at page 187
    "Because of what appears to be a lawful command on the surface, many citizens, because
    of their respect for what only appears to be a law, are cunningly coerced into waiving their
    rights, due to ignorance." (Paraphrased)

    While the original post itself seemed pointless, where did this come from?
    “The claim and exercise of a constitutional right cannot be converted into a crime.”
    [Miller vs. U.S., 230 F. Supp. 486, 489 (1956)]
    “There can be no sanction or penalty imposed upon one because of his exercise of constitutional rights.”
    [Sherar vs. Cullen, 481 F2d. 946 (1973)]

    You see who posted it don't you? And, you still wonder why it was posted when it had nothing to do with anything?

    But to buy an AK47. Or did I mistake your intent?
    Provision for free medical attendance and nursing, for clothing, for food, for housing, for the education of children, and a hundred other matters, might with equal propriety be proposed as tending to relieve the employee of mental strain and worry. --- These matters obviously lie outside the orbit of congressional power.
