Republican’s Advice to Christians – “think about getting a handgun permit”

The Republican Lt. Governor from Tennessee, Ron Ramsey, went on his Facebook page with a message for all his “fellow Christians who are serious about their faith.” According to Mr. Ramsey, his fellow Christians should “think about getting a handgun permit.”

Ron Ramsey was referencing the recent mass shooting in Oregon, where a crazed gunman asked students at the Umpqua Community College if they were Christians, then shot the ones who answered yes. On the post, Ramsey wrote;

While this is not the time for widespread panic, it is a time to prepare. I would encourage my fellow Christians who are serious about their faith to think about getting a handgun carry permit. I have always believed that it is better to have a gun and not need it than to need a gun and not have it.

Our enemies are armed. We must do likewise.

But Ramsey didn’t stop there. He also included a link to a state government Web site that showed residents the steps in getting a gun permit.

Good work Mr. Ramsey. Jesus would be so proud!


I'm just tired of the lies and nonsense coming from the GOP, so this is my little contribution to combat the nonsense!

    Have pity on us!! We folks here in KNoxville also have to put up with the likes of Marsha Blackburn (“I will not believe the evidence of evolution or global warming, just ’cause….”), Scott DeJarlais ( on the PP witch hunt committee, after asking his mistress and wife to get abortions….), Stacy Campbell (asked to leave the Bistro downtown because of his remarks on LGBTs), Jim Duncan (dumber that a box of rocks, but a rich daddy), and Bill Haslam ( of the PILOT gas station dynasty/scandal and brother of the Browns’ football team owner…).
    Then, five minutes away is Blount County: wanted a resolution asking GOD to bypass them with his wrath…’cause they were FORCED to accept gay marriage.

    It’s very trying.
