The national debate about gun control and promises from Washington to legislate firearm sales has some in Louisiana in a buying frenzy.

People in the Baton Rouge area say they're worried legislation at the national level will soon take away their second amendment rights. Today Jim’s Firearms in Baton Rouge was packed with regular Christmas shoppers, hunters, and those who fear their gun rights may soon be taken away.

“I hope it doesn’t,” Donny Swaggart, first-time gun buyer, said. “I hope the President has more sense than that, but with everything that goes on, I think he’s looking for any excuse to take guns out of the hands of Americans.”

Louisiana voters just passed a constitutional amendment that makes local gun protection laws some of the most generous in the nation.

@twinkie1cat: You talk about Christian values, yet you are sitting here judging another person. Good job, way to be a true hypocrite!

I would also like to point out that no where in this article does it mention his religious beliefs, nor does it mention his intended purpose for his purchase. It very well may be a purchase for protection, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. Trusting God is one thing, trusting a mentally unstable stranger is another.

What a great example of Christian love Donny Swaggart is showing by publically going out and buying a gun and then talking about it! Isn't a Christian supposed to love his neighbor and trust God for protection??? Doesn't the Bible he says he believes say, "Turn the other cheek" and "Thou shalt now kill". The Swaggarts are such a bunch of hypocrites.
