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.”

Democratic prosecutors wrap up case against Trump
Democratic prosecutors on Friday wrapped up three days of arguments for seeking Donald Trump's removal from office, as the US president's lawyers prepared to take their turn presenting his defense in the Senate's historic impeachment trial.
For a final eight-hour stretch, the 100 senators listened as Democrats argued that Trump abused the power of the presidency in pressuring Ukraine to launch investigations that would help him politically and then sought to block efforts by Congress to investigate.
Democrats said they had met the burden of proof as they warned Republicans that Trump would remain a grave danger to the nation if left in office.
