ALR085 – A Christian View of Home-Defense

There's a difference between what's legal and what's moral when it comes to defense of your home and family. Shoot first, ask questions later or defending property with lethal force are bad ideas both legally and morally. Lloyd and Pastor Bennett discuss the moral issues surrounding home defense in Clinging to God & Guns. Plus tips from Sgt. Bill, Mia, and Aaron.
