GOP Lawmaker: Guns ‘God Intended’ And ‘Essential’ To ‘Defend Faith’

Tim Donnelly, a Republican lawmaker in California, claims that guns are “God intended” and that are “essential” to “defend our property and our families and our faith and our freedom.”

“Donnelly has proposed a ‘school marshal plan’ modeled after the air marshals program that would allow teachers in California to carry concealed weapons,” David Edwards at The Raw Story reports:

“Guns are used an average of 3 million times a year according to the Clinton Justice Department,” Assemblyman Tim Donnelly told the Christian talk radio show The Bottom Line on Wednesday. “That’s like 6,900 times a day. That’s the high end of the statistics, other people say it’s only 200 times a day.”

“Whatever that number is, they are used to defend human life,” he explained. “They are used to defend our property and our families and our faith and our freedom, and they are absolutely essential to living the way God intended for us to live.”

Donnelly also, claims, “The purpose of the Second Amendment is to defend freedom against tyranny.”

The Second Amendment reads:

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

Nowhere does it say or suggest, “to defend freedom against tyranny.”

Annie-Rose Strasser at Think Progress notes:

Donnelly’s logic might be disputed by other religious Christians, who would rather point to biblical quotes against guns — Isaiah 2:4, for example, which says “They shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning-hooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more” — as an argument that life should focus on family, not firearms.

This is offensive on so many levels…I hardly know where to begin. This man is not sane or rational. He is deluded and possibly under the influence of a cult. He is a danger to society.

The only danger to society is you Bolshevik Nazis.

In the New Testament, it is plainly written:

Luke 22:36 reads:

36 [Jesus] said to [the disciples], "But now the one who has a purse must take it, and likewise a bag; and the one who has no sword must sell his cloak and buy one."

Alex, why not lock him up and send him to death and re-education camps. You sound like a g'damned NAZI

Funny…. I don't recall in the Bible where Jesus needed an AR-15 to defend his faith against the Romans and Jews.
