I can see how the actual 2A can be viewed from a religious and political perspective. And that is ok, because it’s a natural human response which we cannot control and should not want to, IMHO.
But I can see how anything can be viewed from a religious or political stance, as it’s so common. When I take a step back, I must respect it, even if I don’t agree with it. I see that as “opinion”. Still, I also admire the writers of the Constitution, supporting freedom of religion, for to not allow such freedom to me would be oppression.
Being interested in educating those to appreciate the value of firearms, I’m interested in including those who are not religious, non political, or who are even from a political party one might not associate with firearm freedoms.
To defend firearm rights, I tend to believe that our best supportive evidence is its value for self-defense (not the actual 2A), because the opposition’s fuel is the gun-violence and mass shootings of today.
I worry about invoking religion or politics with firearm freedoms, because we may alienate or isolate those who are not religious, not from our own religion, or if they are from a different political party per se.
And I want to appeal to the opposition and more of those in the general public or who are “on the fence” with this hot-button issue/emotionally laden but important subject of our time. Stay safe friends.
