Black gun rights advocate challenges Obama’s call after church shooting for fewer firearms – Washington Times
Kenn Blanchard nails it in the Washington Times.
A former Marine and a Christian pastor, Kenn Blanchard wants more black people to protect themselves by embracing the Second Amendment and learning to use firearms, instead of reflexively siding with the gun control movement.
“It hit too close to home, being a former pastor of a church, knowing that you’re almost a sitting duck because you open up your church. You don’t question people, and you don’t have adequate security.
“Biblically, it’s kind of out of context, too. If you’re going to be the shepherd of a flock — the shepherd had a really big stick. And the shepherd protected the sheep from the wolf and the bear. And the sheep felt safe because the shepherd was armed.
“Somehow, we’ve gotten away from that. We make it seem as if the gun is an evil talisman when it’s not. It’s just another tool.”
