ALR075 – A Grown-Up Conversation about Guns

This week on Armed Lutheran Radio, Lloyd responds to shares some thoughts from James 3:1 in response to the Alexandria shooting, responds to some listener feedback, reviews the Canik TP9SF Elite (pronouncing it correctly in the process) and takes on an arrogant, elitist PhD in Clinging to God and Guns. Plus a Ballistic Minute tip from Sgt. Bill, and a self-defense tip from Aaron Israel.

Commentary: We Need Emotion Control

Mia was unable to join us this week but we hope to have her back next episode.

Clinging to God and Guns
Pastor Bennett was unable to join us this week so Lloyd is flying solo, tackling a segment from the Things Not Seen podcast, featuring a PhD named David J. Dunn. Dr. Dunn thinks you are childish for not wanting to give up your “dangerous toys” in order to save the lives of children and he tries to convince you that Jesus told his disciples to buy swords, because he wanted to “look like a rebel” by hanging out with armed troublemakers.

Prayer of the Week
O God, the Strength of all those who put their trust in You, mercifully accept our prayers; and because through the weakness of our mortal nature we can do no good thing, grant us the help of Your grace that in keeping Your commandments we may please You both in will and deed; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord. Amen.
