This week on Armed Lutheran Radio Lloyd and Pastor Bennett fisk a video from the Faith and Firearms Project, an interview with an ELCA pastor who thinks people own guns because it's the American thing to do and thinks that those who own guns ascribe to a “theology of scarcity.” Plus an uplifting message from Mia, a self-defense tip from Aaron, and a follow-up to a story from episode 52.
