Morality and Gun Violence

So-called “straw purchasers” are people who legally buy guns with the intention of reselling them on the street to people who cannot legally purchase firearms.  An ecumenical clergy movement in Philadelphia seeks to pressure gun store owners to sign a pledge to refuse to make “straw purchase” sales, believing that it allows guns to get into the hands of those who will end up killing someone. Opposition clergy believe guns will be necessary for self-protection and neighbor protection as long as the world remains in a “fallen” condition, and they worry that any modification of the Second Amendment would create a foothold for the government to ban all gun ownership. In this eight-minute video news story, Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly correspondent Lucky Severson allows clergy and lay Christians to express their divergent and nuanced perspectives.
