In the wake of the massive Supreme Court case that removed federal protections on abortion, the Vatican came out in a statement to address the issue of gun ownership. Yes, you read that right.

Following the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, the Vatican hailed the Justices for their efforts in stopping the practice of abortion and immediately started talking about the plague that is the American gun owner.

“Being for life always means defending it against the threat of firearms, which unfortunately have become a leading cause of death of children and adolescents in the U.S.,” wrote the Vatican’s editorial director, Andrea Tornielli.

The Vatican would also suggest that being pro-life means concerning oneself with things like poverty and rising maternity mortality rates.

Essentially the Vatican wants you, if you are pro-life, to oppose the 2nd Amendment. From the perspective of the Vatican, one might say that it is hypocritical to support someone’s right to own a firearm and keep the lives of the unborn. That is, of course, the implication of the Vatican’s comments.

Of course, not everyone who is pro-life is Catholic, and not every gun owner is concerned with what the Catholic church has to say.

The Vatican’s messaging here is off-putting for gun owners; ultimately, the Vatican makes no effort to distinguish law-abiding citizens from degenerate criminals. As a result, you can take the Vatican’s comments to mean that simply owning a gun is wrong.

There are an awful lot of Americans who would be inclined to disagree with this messaging from the Vatican. The CDC found almost 2.5 million uses of firearms for self-defense over a 12-month span. That is, of course, the high-end of the spectrum, the actual number is probably closer to 1,750,00, and the lowest estimated are over 100,000. The point here is that some people might disagree with the Vatican’s position on firearm ownership on the same grounds the Vatican uses to support its position.

Over at Bearing Arms, Tom Knighton points out that the Vatican has predicated its position on the idea that criminals are, more often than not, obtaining firearms through lawful means.

The timing of these comments would also imply that the Vatican takes issue with the recent Supreme Court ruling in New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. Bruen. This would be non-sensical given that all that court case impacted was carry rights, not one’s ability to obtain a firearm. The recent Supreme Court ruling will not affect anyone’s ability to buy a gun. The only impact this case will have is in allowing those who are already legally eligible to obtain a firearm to conceal carry said firearm.

He who is surrounded by the heavily armed Swiss Guards. Just another globalist who has been funding caravans headed north to invade our borders. He should concentrate on getting his Christian views straight. He hails the Supreme Court decision on abortion and then lets Pelosi receive communion. Such hypocrisy.

Took the words right out of my mouth. The church has lost all credibility, now more so when the pope says Biden is a good boy and can continue receiving communion and now he gives Pelosi communion after Pelosi has been barred from communion by her Archbishop. I guess the pope is okay with their public support of abortion.

It would appear as if the Pope is suffering from the same dementia that Joe Bidet obviously has. Maybe he and Slow Joe can get together and remedy our energy shortages here too. If the Pope deems it correct to allow Baby Killer Piglosi communion then I’m not really concerned with his views on “gun ownership.

Going on about the Gun as being the “threat” and ignoring the individual that pulls the trigger.
As a practicing Catholic and a sinner, I’m extremely disappointed in our Church leadership. They’re a Bureaucracy without a clue.

One wonders if the Pope’s Swiss Guards and the Vatican police force use firearms to protect the Pope. If so they should have them taken away and given baseball bats. Why should the Pope be protected with guns if I cannot defend myself and my family with one. He is no more important than I am.
