A member of the Duck Dynasty clan plopped a video on his Facebook page Monday night, showing off an assault rifle before claiming that the Bible is the greatest defense against murder.
In the video, the patriarch of the reality show that featured camouflaged duck call manufacturing millionaires dispensing down-home homilies about Jesus and hunting, the camera slow-pans over Phil Robertson’s AR-15 being setting on the TV star sitting in a camouflage easy chair holding in a Bible.
“So I have here an earthly weapon. It’s a firearm. I would never want to use that against another man,” Robertson explains as the camera focuses on the weapon.
“This is also a weapon. It’s called a sword — the sword of the spirit. You want to stop murder worldwide? You’re focusing on the wrong weapon, he continues as he picks up a Bible held together with duct tape.”
“This, this will stop human beings from murdering one another,” he adds as he ends the lesson on bringing gun violence to an end.
You want to stop murder worldwide? You’re focusing on the wrong weapon. [Picks up Bible] This, this will stop human beings from murdering one another.”

‘It’s all distractions’: CNN panel obliterates GOP for totally refusing to discuss Trump’s conduct
A CNN panel on Thursday obliterated House Republicans for once again completely ignoring the substance of allegations against President Donald Trump and instead throwing out numerous distractions intended to deflect attention from the president's actions.
"It's been distractions about the Bidens, it's been distractions about conspiracy theories about Ukraine's involvement in the election," said CNN legal analyst Carrie Cordero. "Yesterday, it was distractions about FISA and FISA so-called abuse. It was distractions from Congressman Gohmert reading calls from 1943! It's been all distractions and they won't wrestle with the actual conduct."
Fox News’ Chris Wallace calls Trump out for promulgating ‘the most direct sustained assault on freedom of the press in our history’
Even though Fox News hosts like Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, Tucker Carlson and Jeanine Pirro aggressively support President Donald Trump more often than not, he often takes to Twitter to complain when the right-wing cable news channel gives him a hard time. His main targets at Fox News include Judge Andrew Napolitano and Chris Wallace, both of whom have been highly critical of Trump at times. And when Wallace spoke at the Newseum in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday night, he didn’t hesitate to call out Trump’s bitterly anti-media rhetoric.
Jersey City shooting a potential act of domestic terrorism: US prosecutor
A recent shooting at a kosher deli in a New York suburb was fueled by "anti-Semitism" and a hatred of police, New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal said Thursday.
"We believe the suspects held views that reflected hatred of Jewish people as well as hatred of law enforcement officers," he told journalists.
Authorities had previously stopped short of characterizing Tuesday's firefight, which left six people including two suspects dead, in Jersey City as motivated by anti-Semitism.
On Thursday Grewal also said authorities had evidence that the suspects had expressed interest in the fringe Black Hebrew Israelite movement, which has voiced hostility toward Jewish people.
