Anti-Gun Meltdown After Kansas Politician Rides in Parade with Gun Replica
Kansas gubernatorial hopeful calls out ‘snowflake meltdown’ after riding jeep with replica gun at parade!
For the love of John Moses Browning! Really?
The anti-gun bile that is emanating from every corner of our once great Nation is getting ridiculous! I would expect the sort of anti-gun fear and rhetoric in this series of events from a progressive atheist liberal, but from a Pastor? That one caught me off guard.
Republican Kansas governor hopeful Kris Kobach said he won’t “back down in the face of a snowflake meltdown and outrage culture” after being criticized for riding in a jeep mounted with a replica of a large gun at a parade on Saturday according to Fox News.
“Koback, the state’s secretary of state, raised eyebrows on social media over the weekend after he attended the Old Shawnee Days parade, named after the Kansas City-suburb.
But many criticized the politician for riding a vehicle equipped with a large replica gun at the event attended by young children.
Pastor Johnny Lewis of Shawnee Community Christian Church criticized the candidate in a Facebook post, saying his six-year-old child “worries constantly about school shootings.”
“Why was that necessary, sir? My child didn’t need that today. Don’t care what your position is on second amendment that is completely unnecessary,” he said.” (Read More)
As a man of God and a Seminary Student, it is so very hard to not call out this Pastor on his words, behavior and complete ignorance of scripture. But I’m also a Father and I get where he is coming from. As a Pistol Packing Preacher, I have brought my son up around firearms and taught him how to properly use, respect and fear them. As a preachers kid, he also knows to trust in God and the fact/truth that God is always looking out for us. To worry and fear about anything else betrays God’s promise to us.
My suggestion to this Pastor Lewis, would be to stop encouraging the fear of what “could be” and “could happen” and to strengthen the belief that all Christians have and what the Bible tells us to believe which is to trust in God. If we worry about what might happen every single moment of ever single day, then maybe we as Christians should reevaluate our faith and get back into the scripture.
The town where this occurred even pandered to the sparse cries of displeasure with a public apology.
“Please know that the safety of our residents is always our highest priority and we apologize if this made anyone feel unsafe or unsettled. We will be taking steps in the future to try to ensure something similar does not happen again,” the statement said.
