After eye-witness reports surfaced about the Oregon shooter’s targeting of Christians during his rampage, many Americans have started speaking out against the assault on Christianity by political figures and federal agencies. One lieutenant governor even went so far as to send some rather bold instructions to those who follow Christ.
Tennessee’s Lt. Governor Ron Ramsey posted a strong message on his Facebook page, and he directed it at all Christians across the Unites States. Ramsey also happens to be the speaker of the Tennessee senate, and the republican from Blountville said, “Whether the perpetrators are motivated by aggressive secularism, jihadist extremism, or racial supremacy, their targets remain the same: Christians and defenders of the West.”
But those aren’t Ramsey’s only words on the issues current plaguing faithful Christians, and what he added is a message meant to stick in the hearts of Christians. “I would encourage my fellow Christians who are serious about their faith to think about getting a handgun carry permit,” Ramsey wrote. “I have always believed that it is better to have a gun and not need it than to need a gun and not have it. Our enemies are armed. We must do likewise.”
Ramsey’s words come as Obama blames guns for these horrendous deaths, while saying no one should be targeted because of religion when a Muslim is murdered. The hypocrisy is apparent and the means to end these shootings will never hinge on more regulations to the Second Amendment. Ramsey even included a link in his Facebook post that shows those in Tennessee how to obtain a handgun permit.
Democrats have already started their attacks of Ramsey because of his Facebook post. Democrat and state Representative John Ray Clemmons of Nashville said that Mr. Ramsey’s comments “reek of fear mongering and religious crusading.” In Ramsey’s defense, he’s asking Christians to take matters into their own hands to protect themselves and that can hardly be “fear mongering.”
In fact, Barack Obama’s statements were nothing short of scare tactics and reeked of his obvious frustration due to his inability to kill the Second Amendment. All gun control finds its success because of the scared sheep willing to place their well-being in the hands of the government.
Laws didn’t save lives in Oregon. In fact, the one thing in common in every mass shooting is this: the killer shot people and not out of self-defense. That’s already illegal, and no amount of making more meaningless laws will stop these killers from attempting to harm others. Ramsey is correct and the only solution is for Americans to arm themselves against harm. Self preservation is a fruit that doesn’t grow in a liberals garden, and it is refreshing to finally hear a politician stand up for Christianity and the Second Amendment in one fell swoop.
