Larry Pratt: 'If We Have Gun Control In This Country, Then We Will Know We Are Under God's Judgment'
At a prayer breakfast in Tulsa earlier this month – which was also attended by Pratt ally Sen. Ted Cruz’s father, Rafael – Pratt went through his argument that the Bible is against gun control. We’ll spare you the bulk Pratt’s biblical scholarship, most of which can be found in this convoluted essay, and leave you with the conclusion.
“I would submit that if we have gun control in this country, then we will know we are under God’s judgment,” Pratt told the audience.
One way to know whether God’s judgment is upon us, Pratt contended, is to look at whether people are walking around armed. “We should be praying that we will all be able to go around armed, because that will be one outward indicator that we have God’s blessing,” Pratt said. “If we’re walking around like they are in New York City and San Francisco, we’re under his judgment.”
Pratt seems to get a little confused when he attempts to back up this theory with a story from the Book of Samuel about the Israelites going into battle against the Philistines armed with only two swords. He, of course, inserts an anachronistic gun into the Old Testament tale: “That must have been one nasty battle to have gone into battle with only two guys with a gun, everybody else empty-handed.”
