Earlier I mentioned a debate on citizen disarmament between the late Dr. Bahnsen and Dr. Atwood, both clergymen. MP3 files of the debate are available here, going for about two dollars for each half. I think that for a Christian wanting to look at the citizen disarmament debate from a Biblical perspective, this debate is well worth the four dollars it costs. It is not a thorough exposition of all biblical teaching on the matter, but rather a debate between two ministers on the question, “Is the civil regulation of firearms the Scriptural norm for civil government?”
In summary, I would like to quote Dr. Atwood, who said that we “owe it to God” to study the subject of citizen disarmament from a Biblical perspective. I completely agree. After listening to the debate, I would say that Dr. Bahnsen has done so, and in great detail. I would say that Dr. Atwood has not at all proven his case, and has taken a tragedy, along with certain presuppositions, and used vague notions of a “vision” from scripture to advocate that the government should do what explicitly violates the Word of God.
