SUMMARY: Despite the statistics being almost a decade old, this practical, informative 15-page preventative gun violence guide created by the Mennonite Central Committee U.S. Washington Office in 2010 features how to advocate for public policies to prevent gun violence, Christian views on violence and self-defense, and how to write to your government officials to lobby for change.

This guide would be an excellent starting point for a sermon series and/or small group discussion.

KEY QUOTE: “Because of our shared humanity, it is important to be honest about our own views concerning guns, and equally important to have the humility to listen to others’ views.”

ARTICLE: F*ck you, I like guns

No sugar coating or platitudes here as Army veteran Anastasia Bernoulli passionately lays out why civilians don’t need to own military grade rifles. A word of warning that this article contains some swearing.
