A member of the local clergy wrote that our society is facing the same violent crisis as pass societies have and that we have a choice, reason or faith. He wrote of the increase in mass shootings. We also have an increase in gun ownership in our society.
Our society has an organization that every time there is a mass shooting step forward and tells us we need more guns and gun owners. Our society even has Christian Evangelicals who support this view as well. More guns to fight against mass shootings. They will even tell you that Jesus supports that effort to arm yourself.
So the answer is not faith but faith backed with a weapon of violence to combat violence in our society. There is no repeating of history just a rewrite.
