Following the robbery and murder of a priest, the Diocese of Phoenix has made it clear that members of the clergy have the right to self-defense. Dave Kopel, research director for the Independence Institute, discusses the right to carry for all Americans, including the priesthood. He notes that mandatory pacifism is not contained in the Bible, and that gun control advocates are wrong when they use religion to promote their cause.
