Tennessee Lt. Governor Urges Christians To Arm Themselves Against Enemies

On October 2, Republican Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey of Tennessee urged his "fellow Christians" to stay armed after the mass shooting at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Oregon that took nine lives on October 1.

Ramsey linked to a New York Post story sharing second-hand accounts that Christians were targeted by the shooter.

On his Facebook page, Ramsey wrote, "The recent spike in mass shootings across the nation is truly troubling. Whether the perpetrators are motivated by aggressive secularism, jihadist extremism or racial supremacy, their targets remain the same: Christians and defenders of the West."

Ramsey also wrote, "While this is not the time for widespread panic, it is a time to prepare. I would encourage my fellow Christians who are serious about their faith to think about getting a handgun carry permit. I have always believed that it is better to have a gun and not need it than to need a gun and not have it."

He concluded "Our enemies are armed. We must do likewise."
