Is it time for churches and religious leaders to publicly weigh in on the gun control issue? The fierce debate over guns is as much a pro-life issue as abortion.
Anti-abortion advocates focus on legally protecting those who are subject to lethal violence that results in death. These pro-life advocates argue that the human fetus is a person with a right to life.
The same church leaders and pro-life advocates who spare no effort in trying to shut down abortion clinics should similarly be committed to supporting laws to restrict access to certain types of guns and ammunition.
