Skip to comments.Lt. Gov: ‘Fellow Christians’ Should Consider Handgun Permits
Posted on 10/03/2015 7:25:28 PM PDT by lbryce
Tennessee Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey said in a Facebook posting Friday that fellow Christians should consider getting a handgun carry permit after the mass shooting in Oregon.
Survivors told authorities the gunman demanded at least some of the victims state their religion before shooting them at a community college.
In his posting, Ramsey, also the Tennessee state Senate speaker, called recent U.S. mass shootings truly troubling.
I would encourage my fellow Christians who are serious about their faith to think about getting a handgun carry permit, Ramsey wrote. I have always believed that it is better to have a gun and not need it than to need a gun and not have it. Our enemies are armed. We must do likewise.
At least one lawmaker joined those rejecting the posting.

Let some Muslim determined to make claim on his 72 virgins meet up with some armed Christians and you'll see how fast these religious killings are going to stop.
Was certainly some f@g liberal lawmaker against guns even if it would protect his own life.
Christians are not allowed to arm themselves in islamic societies
Another lesson from Oregon is, gun-free zones attract mass murderers.
The Lt. Governor of Tennessee was certainly referring to Americans in regards to those Christians killed in Oregon. I don’t see why the Lt. Governor would be addressing Christians of other countries regarding guns and don’t see your point unless you have some agenda going on.
If this lawmaker is really offended by armed citizens and it is an important issue for him/her, they should announce they are unarmed 24/7 and dismiss the armed guards in the state house and replace them with hall monitors. They should lead by example.
Or ride horses.
I voted for Ron in the primary for TN Gov
Funny how almost every mass shooting happens in a gun free zone. I’ve never heard of a mass shooting in a gun store. Strange.
You should have your speech regulated and the people you associate with should be considered suspect....
Fracking Ass Hat...
And He said to them, “But now, whoever has a money belt is to take it along, likewise also a bag, and whoever has no sword is to sell his coat and buy one.
Would you please explain what your problem is?
Well, speak up, sir. You've expressed some intense opinions. Don't tell me you're going mute,now.
There was a shooting last year in a gun store in Texas. One of the owners was killed and two or three of the bad guys also. From what I understand not much talking just whole lot of shooting. I don’t go into any gun free zones unless they are giving out free guns.
Are you feeling all right? Should we contact 911 and inform the local health authorities that you may require
immediate care? Please let us know.
Praise the lord and pass the ammo.
That was directed to the idiot Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey.
I don’t need a permit...
That is why I carry, even in establishments with gun free signs. Went and saw “The Martian” tonight. Yes, I was carrying in the theater, eff their sign.
Ramsey should have been the Conservative governor, the other losing conservative would not back down, thus he drew enough votes to get the RINO halsam elected. We need to change our Primaries.
Ramsey rammed through more pro gun laws as Senator than many another has.
