A Christian response to gun violence in the U.S.

Bernard Howard in Mere Orthodoxy:

When God says, in the Book of Genesis, From each man … I will demand an accounting for the life of his fellow man,” he also gives this reason: For in the image of God has God made man” (9:5-6). This is the gravity of preventable murder. The weight of each murder victim is the weight of God’s own image.
