The Rt. Rev. Edward J. Konieczny, Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Oklahoma, also brings his wisdom as a former police officer to the current gun debate in the latest CNN Belief Blog:
There is no one wise enough to imagine every circumstance in which an individual might need a gun for protection or when a gun in the right hands might save innocent lives. But I would like my grandchildren to live in a world less violent than the one I have navigated, and it would be a moral failing if I refused to play my part in creating this world because I was too proud to change my mind or too mistrustful to work with people whose experiences may be different but who grieve as I grieve and share my prayers for peace.
We must proceed with humility. But we must proceed.
