Guns aren't designed to kill they are designed to protect. Big difference.

One more thought. Before Jesus sent out His disciples the second time, he told them this.

Luke 22:36
Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one.

Interesting to say the least.

Particularly when you read verses 49 -51, it becomes apparent that Jesus told his disciples to buy swords to teach them to not use them.

Quote:
49 When Jesus’ followers saw what was going to happen, they said, “Lord, should we strike with our swords?” 50 And one of them struck the servant of the high priest, cutting off his right ear.

51 But Jesus answered, “No more of this!” And he touched the man’s ear and healed him.

That is one interpretation.

Back on topic...I like the OP

Evil brings forth evil for such will not ring true with those who are good and only those with evil in their heart will be stirred to action.
The point was addressing whether or not words kill.

Words do not kill.

Are you trying to point out a contradiction in the Bible?... After all, it is not in the nature of Jesus to use a sword.
Jesus said to turn the other cheek.

That's not what the libs say when it comes to school bullying. They blame suicides on bullying.

Words can incite people to kill... I have already stated that in this thread.

Further, instead of predicting what the so called libs say, why not tell us what you think about the subject you brought up?

I think the 1st amendment is ultimately secured by the second, as is every other one of our rights. Human beings have the inalienable right to life, and that right means nothing if you're not able to defend it.

You brought up the subject of bullying.
That's what I asked you to address.

I didn't bring it up to derail the thread with a discussion on bullying, just to counter a point you made, by accurately citing what libs think about bullying. They blame suicides on bullying.
