Can Gunloons be Religious?

Consider the "enemies" of the NRA:

U.S. Catholic Conference, Dept. of Social Development
Union of American Hebrew Congregations
Unitarian Universalist Association
United States Catholic Conference
United Methodist Church, General Board & Church Society
United Church of Christ, Office for Church in Society
American Jewish Committee
American Jewish Congress
B`nai B`rith
Central Conference of American Rabbis
Church of the Brethren
Congress of National Black Churches, Inc.
Episcopal Church-Washington Office
Friends Committee on National Legislation
Interfaith Neighbors
Lutheran Office for Governmental Affairs, Evangelical Lutheran Church in America
Mennonite Central Committee-Washington Office
National Council of the Churches of Christ in the USA
National Council of Jewish Women
World Spiritual Assembly, Inc
I'd  add this list is somewhat incomplete; many churches (e.g., Presbyterian Church) are very much in support of gun control:

In 1998, the General Assembly added to its policy by calling on all Presbyterians to:
intentionally work toward removing handguns and assault weapons from our homes and our communities;



  1. This may amaze you, but there are religious organizations that aren't composed of professional victims.

    The majority of churches don't care one way or another about guns. A few churches even welcome guns.

    You'll find that those organizations on the NRA's list tend to be less religious and more political. Much like anti-gay rights groups and anti-abortion groups, they feign religiosity as a cover for their political activities.

  2. You won't see our local community church listed. But if it makes you feel better, I'll ask them their views on the matter the next time I teach a Concealed Carry class for them.

  3. I'd bet you're a good teacher, FWM, at least about the practical stuff. I'm not so sure about your theory and ideas on the laws.
