Re: The Great Gun Grab...not the how, but WHY?
All of the above reasons are valid, but for those of us who are religious, the reason has always been the same: Satan is real, and he is hard at work trying to destroy the agency of man (i.e. freedom) just as he always has. He is the master of deception and can make half truths and downright lies seem appealing. One of his most effective techniques is to get people to overlook consequences. Ignorance goes a long way toward blinding people to truth. When much of our society knows more about pop culture than they do about politics, he is clearly winning the battle. Ultimately he will lose the war, but not before a lot of potentially good souls are deceived. Our job is to help educate those who may be on the fence...
