    How did you confuse that with Christianity.

    Jesus Christ is Jehovah. God is the same today as he was yesterday and forever. He gave a new commandment but did not get rid of the 10 commandments and others such as thou shalt NOT lay down with someone of the same sex and perform homosexual acts.

    Just remember that at the time the Bible was being written there were no guns and so the word does not appear in the Bible.
    Though shalt not steal. We have a God-given right to our personal property.

    Nowhere does Jesus say let your enemy kill you.

    A couple of issues. First, the Second Amendment specifically states "...the right of the people to keep and bear arms...". Meaning the arms must be carried by the individual. That would certainly include bazookas, grenades, and even surface to air missiles, but not include aircraft, artillery (except for mortars), naval combat vessels, or ICBMs.

    Second, as to being a "god-given" right I presume that is a reference from the Declaration of Independence where it states: "We hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness."
