Guns and Personal Responsibility
Augustine of Hippo was a 4th century theologian and philosopher. He is regarded as one of the greatest in his field of all time. In his book, “On Free Choice of the Will” Augustine discusses the issue of responsibility with his friend Evodius. His friend states, “Clearly we must not blame the things themselves but the people that use them wrongly”.
To which Augustine later replies, “And it has become clear that we should not blame anything when someone uses it wrongly; we should blame the one who uses it wrongly.”
Nothing has changed in the over 1,600 years since Augustine wrote that. People kill, guns don’t.
It’s a sin problem people. Sin occurs when God is removed from the picture.
