“Guns have no rights. People do . . . Catholics, other Christians, and other people of good will, should watch our words. What we should protect and discuss is the Right to Self Defense and the Defense of others. One of the means we may choose to use in doing this involves the ownership of a gun . . .
“The Right to Self Defense is vested in us – not in those objects or instruments we use. That right can be exercised, and those objects and instruments may be used, only if and when it may be proper and necessary.” – Deacon Keith Fournier in Gun Rights? Guns Have No Rights, People Do! Self Defense is a Human Right [via catholic.org]
