Seems that Pope Francis is getting into the gun banning arena and obviously supports the abolishing of all guns.
The Pope was in Turin Italy for a rally and made guns a topic of it.
TURIN, Italy (Reuters) - People who manufacture weapons or invest in weapons industries are hypocrites if they call themselves Christian, Pope Francis said on Sunday.
"It makes me think of ... people, managers, businessmen who call themselves Christian and they manufacture weapons. That leads to a bit a distrust, doesn't it?" he said to applause.
He also criticized those who invest in weapons industries, saying "duplicity is the currency of today ... they say one thing and do another."
Since the Pope even implied "investing" in weapons makes you a non-Christian too.... I would then say this.
I will look forward to the Pope now having everyone of his security guards and Police at the Vatican get rid of their guns. I will look forward to the Vatican not investing anymore money buying guns for their Police and security.
So the Pope has now implied and said that every government in the world is a non-Christian government as they buy guns for their military.
I want to see the Vatican and all world governments get rid of their guns to prove how Christian they are!
So.... before the push comes to take away our guns, due to having them is not "Christian" now, lets see how Christian the Pope is.
Oh, you wonder what weapons the Pope and the Vatican are protected by? Here is the information.
The Gendarmerie is equipped with the Glock 17 semi-automatic pistol in 9 mm Parabellum as the standard issue weapon.They also have more powerful weapons, such as the Beretta M12 and the Heckler & Koch MP5 sub-machine gun, a weapon also used by the Italian police. Against possible riots, they are supplied with batons, pepper sprays and tear gas. For the elite-unit Rapid Intervention Group (GIR), members are equipped with the Carbon 15 carbine and Heckler & Koch FABARM FP6 shotguns.
So, it seems that the Pope may believe that guns are only for the Elite and to protect the Elite and we simple people are non-Christians if we too have guns to protect ourselves....
Interesting that Karl Rove has now come out against guns and has implied the 2nd amendment should be repealed.
Now maybe there’s some magic law that will keep us from having more of these. I mean basically the only way to guarantee that we will dramatically reduce acts of violence involving guns is to basically remove guns from society, and until somebody gets enough “oomph” to repeal the Second Amendment, that’s not going to happen
All I can say is, the Pope, the government and who ever else can call me all the names they want and they can accuse everyone who has a gun a non-Christian, good citizen, etc......... I will always stand by my Freedoms and Rights. If those at the top want to keep up the B.S. rhetoric about Guns, lets see them be the first to get rid of their guns. All of them need to Start walking the talk or otherwise Shut Up!
