U.S. must keep arms

 

On Thursday, Nov. 10, I served as a substitute teacher in second grade at Valley public school in Valley, Wash. At a very excellent Veterans Day assembly program, Principal Smith and many others did an outstanding job presenting a tribute to veterans. Veterans’ names were read, and they were asked to stand. Since I am a veteran, I stood when my name was read.

The second-grade class that I taught sang “This Land is Your Land.” Essay award winners read their essays.

As I reflected on this assembly, the verse of Scripture, Mark 3:27, came to mind: “No man can enter into a strong man’s house, and spoil his goods, except he will first bind the strong man, and then he will spoil his house.” Yes, you must first render the strong man defenseless (take away his guns, or his right to use his guns). Then the wicked person can do the evil he wishes to do because that strong man will be helpless to protect his house.

Also, on a national level, if the United States would surrender its weapons, then the Islamic terrorists, or any other evil people, would be able to conquer our country.
