While President Obama points to guns as a problem, those who want more guns in more places are using the Charleston tragedy to push their agenda.

Kenneth Blackwell, a Second Amendment advocate and former Ohio secretary of state, said houses of worship could take themselves out of the line of fire by taking down the “gun-free zone” signs and letting it be known that law-abiding concealed-carry permit holders — and their guns — are welcome.

“At a time when religion is under attack and we have the government every day running God out of the public square, churches have become the targets of opportunity for deranged people,” Mr. Blackwell said. “Particularly if they assume that folks are not armed.”

…Erich Pratt, spokesman for the Gun Owners of America, fired off a statement countering the president’s argument by pointing to recent mass shootings in Europe, such as January’s Charlie Hebdo massacre in Paris.

Mr. Pratt also said that the Rev. Clementa Pinckney, the Emanuel AME Church’s pastor who died in the shooting, was “an anti-gun activist” who had voted against concealed-carry legislation in his capacity as a Democratic state senator.

“One of the biggest problems at South Carolina church is that the potential victims were disarmed by law,” said Mr. Pratt. “But the president completely misses all of this. He ignores the fact that this was yet another example where a massacre took place in a Gun Free Zone.”

    Roof wanted to start a race war, so that makes their ‘point’ moot. It would have happened regardless.

      But, but, but…
      It’s Christians/Faith/Religion who are under attack..

        I’m a Christian and wish y’all would stop persecuting me even though you aren’t. Stop it y’all!

    Before you strap up on your way to church make sure your weapon is loaded.

    When I first saw the title, I wrongly assumed this was something that was being discussed before the latest instance of hate that occurred in South Carolina. I keep trying not to give these types credit for any shred of decency, but it is hard when they are this horrible.

    Let’s see, a bad man walks into a church and pulls out a gun, and shoots nine people dead. This is really BAD. The Right Wings answer is, Give everyone in a church a gun and start an all out war at services. Question, how many people would be dead in such a hail of bullets ? Well, it is God’s church so I guess only God knows.

    “Religion is under attack.” This was not a religious attack, idiot. When will people stop saying that?

      It’s the lead balloon the white racist want to float.

        They say crap like this instead of addressing the actual issues.

    If only everyone had a gun…
    Think how safe we would all be…(not)

    • granpa.usthai June 21st, 2015 at 3:14 am

      Nuclear Arms (your 2nd Amendment right that shall not be infringed upon) is a lot safer than guns.

    Land of the guns and home of the grave.

    This is the gun lobby’s answer for every mass shooting, every time. Guns guns and more guns. The more the better. According to the gun lobby everyone should be packing. This policy has no good ending and never will! Total insanity!!

      One way to eliminate boring sermons.

    “Jesus said to is apostles, ‘love others as I have loved you’. That concludes today’s sermon and don’t forget, next week is our monthly ‘Shootin’ Hoot’n Nanny’. Don’t forget to bring the kids, grandma and your favorite handgun or rifle and we’ll have a rippin’ good time! Free bullets will be available for those who can’t afford to purchase them”

    Be wary of anyone posting the following meme(?) and then smack them silly with the fact that she’s a retired cop that was serving as a volunteer security guard.
