In response to this post from Trent Horn:
I have no clue who Mr. Horn is. I think I've heard the name. But I saw multiple reactions against this, especially from leftwing Catholics all about gun control and government policy as our only hope.
In fairness to them, however, they are right in saying Mr. Horn is wrong. Those who have said gun violence is a pro-life issue are spot on correct. Even if they run with it to push political agendas and ignore the obvious social and spiritual ailments we are watching bear fruit in our society, they are right about that.
Anything that involves aiding, preserving and saving the lives of God's children is a pro-life issue. That doesn't mean, however, that it follows Gun Control is a pro-life issue. Nope. That is a vague term representing one possible solution. Or maybe it isn't a possible solution. Or maybe there are policies that fall under 'gun control' that are worth looking at, while others are not. But a given political solution is not necessarily pro-life. Something we need to understand. Politicians may enjoy equating their particular party with the Thrice-Holy, but we Christians should avoid such leaps. Thus:
|If you think the problem is with only one party, you're the problem.|
But gun violence as a pro-life issue? Oh yeah.
