    Forgetting the constitution for a moment, what do you personally believe? Although I am not personally a gun owner I believe in the right to defend ourselves and property.

    I believe in trusting in the living God of the Bible to protect me and mine. I don't have to kill anyone, like Satan's children do.

    Acts 16:31 Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and you'll be saved, you and your household.

    If rights are abused, they may rightly be withdrawn.
    (I'm not American, so I don't have a "right" to bear arms anyway. And the sky hasn't fallen in on us)

    @Deborah_ I'm not in the US, either; it has to be admitted that such debates are part of the US political scene and many ppl from other countries find it hard to participate.

    I do indeed see the relevance of your header verse: "Resist the devil, standing firm in the faith." (I Peter 5:9) Our principal weapons are those of Ephesians 6.

    So just because we want to defend ourselves, our families, our country, homes, and property that makes us the children of Satan? Do you even realize how ridiculous you sound right now?

    maybe bear arms appeal to some although I don't know why...... me personally, I'm happy with the human type; a lot easier to pick my nose.

    Life is good here in Australia without the 2nd amendment.

    And if things got bad, the original Apostles did not defend themselves by killing other humans with weapons to protect themselves from persecution and even martyrdom.

    Just look at the Middle Eastern Christians and Christians living in other persecuted nations in Africa, in Asia, the majority of them are living without weapons, and they are probably the strongest Christians in the world.

    @Josho Good point....

    "(For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)

    5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ" (2 Corinthians 10.4-5)

    The right to bear arms was put into the constitution so that the people could rise up and overthrow the government if the government got out of control as it is. This has already been determined, and this right is already removed as the government restricts all the guns that they want for themselves to overthrow the people.

    As for me, got hollow points loaded

    Bare arms are fine so long as they don't have a bunch of tattoos.

    I do believe in the right to bear arms. However, the "well armed militia" of the constitution has been made into a sham. To fulfill the constitution we would need jet planes, armored vehicles, antiaircraft weapons, naval vessels, etc. The right wing has failed the citizens by focusing on handguns, which are trivial if we have to battle the U.S. military forces. The current gun lobby focuses on hunters rights and the self-defense of households - this is not the purpose of the 2nd amendment. The militia should have weaponry equivalent to the U.S. military, according to the terms "well armed". Pistols and rifles do not constitute "well armed".

    Though I believe in 'your' right to bear arms, I personally do not believe in the use of violence to combat violence or to protect my rights. God is my protector.

    I also believe that queers have the right to be queer. Similar to being a queer, using violence is a sin according to our lord and savior, Jesus Christ. Nevertheless, the sins of both queers and killers can be cleansed through Jesus.

    Well they make them less ugly.

    Tattoos never turn out well...they fade, stretch and do all kinds of things that nobody wants them to.

    Everyone I know that has gotten them has eventually regretted getting them at some point.
