This really is a sad story. In the East London suburb of Ilford, a woman, eight months pregnant by her second husband, is innocently washing dishes while her crazy first husband sneaks into the backyard toolshed with a–a crossbow! And with it he shoots her dead (https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/7746015/man-appears-in-court-accused-of-shooting-heavily-pregnant-ex-wife-dead-with-a-crossbow/). They’re now trying to save the baby.
London, where having a gun for self-defense is against the law, recently overtook New York City in the murder rate sweepstakes. A lot of people getting stabbed, these days: they’re seriously pondering knife control.
Are they gonna need crossbow control, too?
Here is what humanists and other leftids simply refuse to understand. The will to murder comes not from the outside, but from within. Gun control, knife control, yatta-yatta–when it comes to murder, where there’s a will, there’s a way. If they can’t shoot you, they’ll stab you, and if they can’t stab you, there’s strangulation, poison, the old blunt instrument a la “Mrs. Peacock in the Conservatory with the Lead Pipe”… or a crossbow.
The problem is not insufficient government, improperly written laws, or Science that just hasn’t found The Answer yet (but surely will, someday soon). The problem is sin; and the only solution is personal regeneration through belief in Jesus Christ.
They can pass laws till they’re blue in the face; but as long as they demand a culture that rejects salvation, there will be no salvation available. Only more murders.
