Lt. Governor Says Christians Should Consider Arming Themselves
By Jenn Jacques
In response to the Umpqua Community College shooting that claimed the lives of 9 innocent and injured 7 people in Oregon, one Lieutenant Governor issued a bold suggestion to citizens.
Unlike President Obama, Tennessee Lt. Governor Ron Ramsey pointed out the fact that the shooter’s rampage targeted Christians. “Whether the perpetrators are motivated by aggressive secularism, jihadist extremism or racial supremacy, their targets remain the same: Christians and defenders of the West,” Ramsey said.
“[The shooter] started asking people one by one what their religion was. ‘Are you a Christian?’ he would ask them, and if you’re a Christian stand up. And they would stand up and he said, ‘Good, because you’re a Christian, you are going to see God in just about one second.’ And then he shot and killed them,” said Stacy Boylen, whose daughter was wounded at UCC in Roseburg, Ore., told CNN.
