Gun Control

Being married to an American and going to school in America has introduce a lot of new things into my life. Everything from gun control to having a president instead of a prime minister. Even the Constitution of United States was foreign to me until now.
One of the very hot topics in America today is gun control. If you ever want to start at hot conversation just mention gun control. The reason why I would be against gun control is because it goes against the Constitutional freedom that Americans and America have or were built upon. If the government continues to go against the Constitution of America when it comes to gun control, I believe there will be a civil war. You think I am crazy! But when something as foundational of being able to bear arms is under attack, people of America are not going to just sit by and watch the government take away a freedom, in which United States was founded. To me, I would not care about gun control if it was not in the Constitution, but it is.
The only thing gun control does, and has done in history, has taken or made it harder for the so called “law abiding” citizen, to use or have guns, for the use of good. It also has made the “non law abiding” citizen more capable of having guns and braver in using them. Braver because they know that the chances of the person, who they are thinking about stealing or attacking, is slim to none to having a gun because of gun control and the laws that would come with it.
Gun control goes way beyond just taking guns. It steps on the freedoms on which America was founded upon.
Should there be better background checks and mental health system? Absolutely! But you do not have to go against the Constitution to make that happen! And when your excuse for not providing better background checks is because you don’t have enough time or man power, it’s not going to be fixed by taking away guns. If you want a civil war, then go ahead and take guns away.
The whole underlying issue of this whole thing is the fact that we are a cursed people. We are cursed by the curse of sin. Everyone is capable of doing what Hitler did or what happened in Connecticut because we are cursed by sin. Sin makes us capable of doing anything. No matter how evil we think something is, you or I, are capable of doing worse. So, it does not matter if we have a gun in our hand or nothing at all, we are already capable of doing evil beyond what we can imagine. This sin curse was broken by Jesus Christ though, and what He did for us on the cross. Without Jesus Christ, all you can do is sin. With Jesus Christ, you don’t have to sin anymore.
Without understanding how sinful we really are, gun control will keep doing more damage than actually stopping the damage.
Understand we are all hopelessly lost in our sin without Christ. Understand that you are sinner, and believe that Jesus Christ died on the cross for your sin, and rose again, conquering death. Believe and be converted.
