War and religion. Peace and arms. The mantra, the beliefs, and those willing to change. This will always confound me. It's sort of like a conflict of interest isn't it? Want peace......profess strict religious beliefs of not taking life....yet adapt to the world and it's ways? No more martyrs these days? How far does a firm belief go now? Society always adapted to religion.....now everything is backwards? I don't think we can have everything both ways or any way you want it. Maybe I'm mistaken. Should I seek a physician for some prescription drugs now?

Citizenship is not required for the right to bear arms... residency (Actually just "living in" the U.S.) is enough... (See below)*

Not required, but my personal preference would be for those not born here, to pledge their allegiance to the Flag, understand some of our laws, and become Americans before being armed. What religion they observe or ignore is none of my business.

Carrying a dagger for self-defense and defense of others is part of their religion. I think it is great that some of them are realizing they need more than a ceremonial dagger to do that, and are taking the appropriate course of action. Good for them.

In one of the atircles I read about this, some of th sihk's were having a hard time justitfying carry a gun. The religion mandates that they carry a sword. In a lot of areas, they have changed to carrying a small plastic sword to obey local laws. I don't see why they should have any problem (religiously) carrying a gun where legal.

The whole concept of carrying a sword was written into the religion when a sword was the most advanced/widely used weapon of the time. Now that the world is more advanced, and a sword just doesn't quite cut it when someone has a gun to your loved ones' heads ("bringing a 'knife' to a gunfight"). The point of having a sword was to make you equal to most any other man in defending yourself and others- now a sword isn't as much of an equalizer.

"Gun control should mean hitting your target every time."
Please try to remember- I have a very dry sense of humor. It usually sounds mean, but isn't meant to be.

That is exactly what I was thinking to. Kind of like how all of the anti's say the 2A only applies to muskets and muzzle loaders.
