    his followers to protect him with swords, this debate is the antithesis of his philosophy.  He would ask that gun owners to sacrifice their perceived rights to the benefit and protection of their fellow citizens.  He would ask them to trust in his protection and justice and not try to implement their own.  You might call this naive but if you call yourself a follower of Christ then you have to look at what he said and apply it to your self and his call would be for you to give up your guns(like he told Peter to lay down his sword in the garden before he was taken into custody).   Don't call yourself a follower of Christ while waving your gun rights in the faces of your brother and his murdered child, you are a fool and a liar.
