You can't be against abortion
without being for gun control.

If you are against gun control
you are for killing children 
of all ages
(An 80 year-old man is somebody's child).

Being against gun control
is being for killing children,
or anybody else the gun owner
deems worthy and deserving of death.

A gun license and a concealed weapon permit
grant the owner the right 
to kill whomever she/he thinks needs killing.

The people who elect people
who vote against gun control--
or against even having a gun control measure
come up for a vote--
are complicit in the murders
of children in classrooms
and people in churches, etc.,
all across the land,
and are accessories in the crimes
gun owners commit.

Voters against gun control 
are guilty of providing owners/possessors 
with the weapons they use
to carry out their missions
of murder and mayhem.

Every child's death by gun shot
is on the conscience of those
who vote to keep guns in the hands
of those do the shooting.

You can't be thinking you are doing
anyone a favor 
by making it easy to put guns
in the hands of everyone who wants one.

Responsible gun ownership
begins with being for gun control,
including adequate background checks
and a long-enough time between gun purchase
and gun possession
for the back-ground check to be completed.

No military-style weapons sold or possessed/owned.
No high capacity magazines sold or possessed/owned.
No bump stocks sold or possessed/owned.

If you are against these things,
you are for anything a gun owner does
irresponsibly in the service
of killing whomever she/he pleases--
and guilty of being complicit
or not caring,
and of being an accessory to whatever
they do with the guns they possess/own.

Wake up to what you are doing
in allowing what is done to be done
and to continue being done.

And stop doing it!

I'm retired, and still finding my way--but now, I don't have to pretend that I know what I'm doing. I retired after 40.5 years as a minister in the Presbyterian Church USA, serving churches in Louisiana, Mississippi and North Carolina. I graduated from Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary, in Austin, Texas, and Northwestern State University in Natchitoches, Louisiana. My wife, Judy, and I have three daughters and five granddaughters within about twenty minutes from where we live--and are enjoying our retirement as much as we have ever enjoyed anything.
