On July 25, 1993, Azanian Peoples' Liberation Army cadres attacked St. James Church in Cape Town, South Africa; a parishioner returned fire to protect innocent lives. He killed several of the would be attackers driving off the murders’.

This parishioner Charl van Wyk has been criticized for his stance, but the fact remains his having a gun and bravery saved many lives.
His argument is “That this is most definitely not my "personal theology" but is historically the theology of mainline Christianity. In fact, it is those who do not support the individuals' right and responsibility to self-defense who are neglecting the theology of the Bible”.

The Puritans, in 1630 crossed the Atlantic to the New World, bringing biblical principles, and Puritan morality along with them which had a great impact on the culture. When the War of Independence was followed by the Bill of Rights they influenced the Bill of Rights to read "A well-regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to bear arms shall not be infringed."

The Puritans believed disarmament of the citizen would bring about the judgment of God. And, so the Puritans believed that when the Israelites were oppressed by the Philistines (Book of Judges), that they received the judgment of God, because they had disarmed themselves.

According to author Charl van Wyk” Christians have historically taught that weapon ownership for the common man is an unalienable right. Charl van Wyk is the author of "Shooting Back: The Right and Duty of Self Defense".
