The NRA’s Myth of Redemptive Violence [reblog]

From a friends blog: The NRA’s Myth of Redemptive Violence

I’ll try to be fair: the myth does make perfect sense when you assume that you have the right to judge everyone else. Once we say that we can decide who should be controlled by force and who shouldn’t, we are not only allowed but also obligated to use force in controlling them. And most people do assume that they – as individuals, as a group (including religious group), as a nation – have the right to judge everyone else.
