I would like to say that the only ones posting negative things about Bob Owens and how he died at his own hand were the gun prohibitionists. Don’t get me wrong, CSGV and their followers are spewing their nonsense as Miguel makes clear. However, I can’t say that.
A splinter group called California Right to Carry which advocates for open carry posted a nasty and vicious take on Bob’s suicide.
The ignorance and viciousness shown in this post just disgusts me. That’s all that needs to be said.
The position of the Catholic Church that the author posits is one from another time. Actually, the Catechism of the Catholic Church, while acknowledging that suicide is contrary to the love of self and to the love of God, states that allowances are made for “psychological disturbances” and “anguish”. Moreover, it goes on to state that we should not “despair of the eternal salvation of persons who have taken their own lives. By ways known to him alone, God can provide the opportunity for salutary repentance. the Church prays for persons who have taken their own lives.” (Sections 2280 through 2283)
