"America’s love affair with guns, and the profound legal and
ethical issues surrounding a common sense approach to managing the role we want
fire arms to have in our culture, has been a societal preoccupation for many
years in the United States. With the murder
of so many innocent children at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in
Connecticut, many Americans have awakened to the moral implications of this
complex situation and have come to realize that this is an ethical issue of
great urgency. A host of religious
traditions are issuing statements and doing what they can to nudge American
society to finally deal with guns in a way that makes sense. Many of the Christian communities of faith in
partnership with Seattle University’s School of Theology and Ministry have
issued statements, and local religious leaders have gathered together to try to
engage the media around this issue. The School's faculty are among those actively engaging this issue, as a part of their active work in the local, national and global community surrounding relevant issues.
