With all do respect tjzwemer,
You failed to mention the man that ran back to his house to get his gun and fired two shots and then chased the man or men involved in this incident. New Zealand has very strict gun laws. Didn’t help in this case. I’m sure that they have strict laws on explosives. Didn’t help in this case.
I carry when I go to church and if the need ever arises I will use it to defend those that don’t carry. You can be a sheep and be slaughtered or you can use the brain that God gave you and defend yourself and others.
I have more respect for the Jews that defended themselves against Nazi troops in the ghettos instead of walking blindly into an oven.
