In a post I wrote a couple of weeks ago, I made the call for Christians to turn in their guns. Of course, it was not my blog post that brought the following about, but I must say that I was glad to see that this week, in L.A., the police department offered citizens grocery store gift cards for turning in their guns. I did some looking and found that other states, such as Illinois and Maryland, have done this in the past too. I would love to be a part of helping organize something like this in Kentucky. Even more, I would love to see churches helping set up these types of events all over the country (and world for that matter). Pastors, elders, deacons, and congregants, why not take the lead in your place of worship and try to get something like this in the works? It is Christians, those who claim to be sons and daughters of the Prince of Peace, those who claim to align themselves with and follow the Prince of Peace, who should be leading the way on these sorts of initiatives. Christians do not need to own guns. Plain and simple. Get rid of them. And help others get rid of them.
