Rick Warren Blames Online Sale of Unregistered Gun for Son’s Suicide

Matthew Warren Bought Unregistered Gun Online To Use In Suicide, Rick Warren Says.

Warren’s statement seems to be designed, and timed, for political effect, and is consistent with his prior statement advocating gun control.

LSD, for example, is a dangerous drug with no beneficial use, whereas a pistol can be used for self-defense and training. Even “prohibited persons” (an ever-expanding list that includes certain misdemeanor convictions, certain people in divorce proceedings, people who renounce citizenship, non-immigrants, dishonorable discharge, medical marijuana users, etc.) may rightly want to defend themselves. Blaming the gun dealer here is really low, and opportunistic.
