Who would Jesus shoot?

Earlier this morning, I was out in my car doing errands. I stopped at a traffic light and started reading the bumper stickers on the pickup truck in front of me:

"NRA - Sportsmen for Santorum"

"Christians for Santorum"

"Protect your guns. Protect your bible. Vote Santorum."

And it occurred to me that I cannot picture Jesus shooting anything for sport -- especially those AK-47s and 50-caliber rifles that the NRA wants everyone (even terrorists) to be able to purchase without question.

Those things were NOT designed for harmless Sunday afternoon target shooting.

What's so Christian about an AK-47?
