If you answer "No" to the 1st question, you will get a gun.
I nominate Shakazulu to use his/her great insight to vet all gun registrations, then for sure the killing will stop.
OK, fairly easy - Over the ages, non-Religious people have killed many as well as individuals not recognizing any government or individuals not liking the government. Though I don't have any numbers, I'll bet they are pretty equal.
Jimbo - How would the background check determined that the son was mentally unbalanced? You think she or he would have admitted to it on one of their forms?
Pack - "Sadly both government and religion are responsible for the murders of millions throughout our existence on Earth, and will continue with our faith in them" Sadly, the same can be said about lack of governemt and lack of religion. I believe the individuals were responsible for most those murders.
JimHeim - I'm sleeping in bed, I'm woken by a breaking window in another room. Now I supposed to creep thru the house in the dark, open a safe in the dark, retrieve my gun and maybe have to load it and then yell "Halt, who goes there, friend or foe!" Methinks that will all be too late.
I'm not a gambling man, but I'm hedging by bet with Christ. Once we die, we'll find out whose right or wrong. Statistically, you're odds are better to roll with Christ.
jamjam - "Can you on a personal level stop the lie?"
What lie are you referring to and can you prove it's a lie?
jamjam - "How can you sit next to someone in pew knowing that each of you are faking a belief you question daily?"
Answer: Because we are human & fallible.
This reminds me of Bill Engvall's "Here's Your Sign":
One day I locked my keys in my car and as I was standing there with a coat hangar halfway thru the top of my window, a guy walks up and says," Lock yer keys in the car?" Without missin a beat I said, "Nope, Just washed it and was hanging it up to dry."...Here's your sign.
