Here vs. Down Under II

Daily Photo Galleries

I read with amusement the column “A letter home — from Australia” (April 28 and about Australians wondering when America is going to catch up and ban guns like Australia has.

America is still mostly free because we retain our right to bear arms. The moment we lose that, we become slaves, as you are either free or a slave. You can't be both, and if you need permission to own a gun, you are not free.

The power elite are hellbent on making us slaves, one step at a time if necessary, which is the source of the so-called “gun debate” going on.

Yes, America has its problems. But it's not guns that are a problem. It's immorality, which stems from a lack of godliness. Moral decay has crept into our society and will be our downfall, like it was for ancient Rome, if we do not return to God.
