He didn't give me the right and he can't take it...GOD DID!

LiveLeak.com - Ex Secret Service Agent Gives Powerful Gun Control Speech (comments)

Just to play Devil’s advocate, where in the Bible is the freedom to bear arms?

He said to them, “But now if you have a purse, take it, and also a bag; and if you don’t have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one.”

Luke 22:36

Does that also give us the right to purses and bags? It sounds like an instruction to buy a sword, not a declaration of a right to own one.

Not that I’m saying that it shouldn’t be a right to own a gun. Owning a gun is insurance against a tyrannical state. However, there’s no evidence in the Bible or the Christian marriage of a God-given right to owning guns.
