Larry Pratt, Executive Director of Gun Owners of America, wants his faithful to be sure to know that God loves you best of all with a well-stocked gun cabinet!
Earlier this month, Pratt explained to a small group of the devout that gun laws are a way people can know they are not in God’s favor, ‘and 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’s statements were made earlier this month at a Oklahoma Second Amendment Association breakfast sponsored by the Tulsa 912 Project, a group started by right-wing media mogul Glenn Beck to ‘bring us back to an [emotional] place where we were on September 12, 2001‘.
Pratt continued, saying that God would ‘repent‘ and take back ‘what He has done to the country, He will heal the land, restore it, and put His blessing upon it’– except for New York and San Francisco which, Pratt goes on to explain, are already under God’s judgement.

Pratt’s statements seem to be a part of a new concerted effort by gun proponents to achieve repealing gun laws passed in the last decade. Recently the NRA has announced they will be suing several American cities and states over local gun laws. First on their hit list is San Francisco because of its ban on high-capacity magazines.
