Yeah, the right to bear arms and self-defense are huge here in the US. I own a gun. It was given to me by an elderly Navy veteran. By our laws Kyle did nothing wrong that would constitute punishment in anyway (as proven by the defense and supported by the judge and jury). He was in legal possession of a fire arm at the time, and only used it when he felt his life was in danger. And he did so wisely showing remarkable restraint for a boy fighting for his life.Bare in mind I’m in the UK where he would of been shot by the police
There is nothing in the Bible that says we have to let people kill us without a fight. In fact, there are instances when God even helped His people fight by wiping out whole armies. So if there's a criminal coming after me looking to harm me, I will use the gun that veteran gave me. Do I ever want to use it like that? Absolutely not. But if it comes down to choosing between myself and a rapist? There is no choosing.
