Tennessee Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey (R) posted a status update on Facebook last week about how he thinks Christians should buy guns to show how serious they are about their faith.
“I would encourage my fellow Christians who are serious about their faith to think about getting a handgun carry permit,” he wrote in response to the Oregon shooting. “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.”
Ramsey is pumping the GOP fear-machine handle hard.
