Allow me to expand upon my last answer.
Abortion in and of itself is the act of ending an innocent life.
Owning a firearm is neither moral or immoral. It is an inanimate object. I would like to hear the argument for why owning a firearm is inherently immoral. My guess would be that it has to do with the purpose or potential use of a firearm to take a life. Which I would argue the same could be said about knives, or cars, or baseball bats, or hammers, and in the case of Cain and Able… a rock.
Under that logic, I think one could even make the argument that since a suction device is used in the procedure of most abortions one should not own a vacuum. Yes that sounds a bit tongue in cheek but I think it is faulty logic.
I would also assert that the purpose of owning a firearm is actually the opposite of an abortion. While abortion is used to end an innocent life. A firearm often is used to preserve and protect innocent life. Yes great harm and evil can be done with a firearm. But look at Drunk Driving. Drunk Driving has taken many innocent lives. But, drinking is still legal… owning a car is still legal. It is the act of driving while drunk that is illegal. And so the act of using a firearm to commit murder is illegal.
Also laws are different in each country when it comes to the private ownership of firearms. So I know we are called to follow the laws of the land. And if you live in a country where it is illegal for you to own a firearm… and you illegal purchase a firearm, then I think at that point you are potentially crossing a moral line.
I hope this helps. I love talking about this topic.
And for just a quick background. I am an American. I grew up using firearms. I own firearms. I am a hunter. I was in the Army. I know firearms well.
Grace and Peace,
