Everyone wants to go to heaven but no one wants to die to get there

See How Quickly "Stand Your Ground" Spread Nationwide | Mother Jones

While we certainly have a right to defend ourselves, doing so is completely incompatible with Christianity if you define Christianity as following the teachings of Jesus Christ who told us to bless our enemies, turn the other cheek, and give up our cloak if demanded.  Arming ourselves betrays our lack of faith as we are placing our trust in ourselves, guns and "stand your ground laws" instead of God Almighty.

God alone is our protector, avenger, and, should we be killed,  has arranged an eternity better than anything this life has to offer.
