I Did NOT Shoot The Sheriff

***News FLASH***

This just in…

Brevard County Sheriff Wayne Ivey in Brevard County, Florida made headlines today telling face book to “Arm yourselves against the terrorists!”  He quoted a standard NRA line saying, “The ONLY thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.”  This may not be the biggest news item of the day, but in Brevard County, I feel sure it makes the front page.

I would like to point you to Jesus for an alternative opinion, but he never faced down a maniac with a gun.  (Somehow his crucifixion just seems irrelevant, I guess.)

But if you read here, I urge you to familiarize yourself with the 1993 story of Nurse Joan Black, who disarmed a wild-eyed mass shooter in her hospital with a hug!

That’s right…  with a HUG!

So, when a person in authority, like say a sheriff, says, “The ONLY thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun!” he really means that is the ONLY thing is tiny imagination can dream up.  But I hope your imagination expands to a far bigger reality after you read about Nurse Joan Black, and then hopefully Jesus as well.
