The sole purpose of guns

So I recognize that the mass shooting is a complex breakdown at many levels of society and that blaming a single factor is simplistic. But I am tired of seeing justifications for the right to firearms and for support based on the argument that anything can be used as a weapon if in the wrong hands.

Guns have one purpose: to kill.

The weapon industry is a booming and lucrative industry. Throughout history, nations have supplied opposing nations with weapons and then wonder why there are so many dead victims.

Guns have no other purpose but to kill.

Isaiah 2:4 – They will beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks.

Micah 4:3 – They will beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks.

THIS is the day I look forward to
