Love Your Neighbor; Buy a Gun

In His Law, God commanded the covenant people, "Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself." Jesus quoted this as one of many ringing endorsements of His Father's Law. (Matthew 19:19; 22:39; Mark 12:31; Luke 10:27)

If you love your neighbor, you will want him to come to no harm. Since it turns out that increased firearms ownership contributes to a climate that discourages violent crime, you should not only own and train with a firearm but encourage your friends and neighbors to do so, as well.

In addition, the proliferation of firearms discourages criminals from violent acts, which means fewer of them will get hurt or killed in the commission of crimes. Therefore, by increasing firearm ownership, you are also loving your enemy, thus fulfilling another command of Jesus.
