The only thing a gun is good for is killing and maiming people and animals. It is especially bizarre that several people professing to be Christians are keen to get their hands on the means to kill and maim. Would Jesus have packed an assault rifle?
You should also consider that a lot of this weaponry stuff is not about rights or owning arms, but SELLING arms, and making money out of it. Always follow the money.

[First off, apparently he forgot that Jesus said:
Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.
But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither, and slay them before me.
Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one.
Second, it is spoken like a true communist. It’s the greedy capitalist that is responsible for everything they think of as evil in the world. It’s that unchallenged assumption–“Money is the root of all evil.”
I prefer Ayn Rand’s claim “Money is the root of all good.”–Joe]
