Our thoughts and prayers are not enough…we need to ban assault rifles and here are 7 Christian reasons why:
Jesus invited disciples to take up the cross not an assault rifle.
Jesus told us to fear not so what exactly are we trying to protect ourselves from?

As he approached his darkest hour, he healed the soldier who was struck and said, “No more of this!”

Because we are sick of this.
