God and Guns

Editorial comment: I grew up on a farm – I know that rifles are a necessary part of farm life. I also have friends who really enjoy the act of shooting at targets – they describe it as sort of “zen” – and I get that. But guns were designed to kill – whether that is why someone buys them or not – and it seems obvious to me that we need to have control over who has access to them, and what types of weapons are available to the general public. I also feel the need to address the “God and guns” meme – the notion that people who believe in God also must believe in everyone’s right to own assault rifles – there are people who believe in God who also support gun control. Just thought you should know.
