Letter: Our misplaced values and gun control debate

Once again, tragically, it is the day after another mass shooting, and all the Second Amendment fanatics care about are their guns. Never mind all the people who were killed. Making sure you have a device used to kill, that’s what’s important, and the best way to be of service to your fellow human.

Since a majority of North Dakotans say they are Christians, one must ask: What would Jesus Christ have to say about guns? Would he really tell you to arm yourself? Would he really be a member of the National Rifle Association? Or would he want love to be a person’s guiding principle?

Instead of clamoring for more guns, maybe all the good Christians in this state should be asking themselves “What would Jesus do?” and actually apply it to their lives.
