Gun control: Church firmly, quietly opposes firearms for civilians

Editor: once again, the USCCB is showing its color, RED.  Interesting in light of neo-Con George Weigel's admission of a few days ago that Communists had indeed infiltrated the Church.

VATICAN CITY (CNS) -- The Catholic Church's position on gun control is not easy to find; there are dozens of speeches and talks and a few documents that call for much tighter regulation of the global arms trade, but what about private gun ownership?

The answer is resoundingly clear: Firearms in the hands of civilians should be strictly limited and eventually completely eliminated.

But you won't find that statement in a headline or a document subheading. It's almost hidden in a footnote in a document on crime by the U.S. bishops' conference and it's mentioned in passing in dozens of official Vatican texts on the global arms trade.
