“It’s a picture of spiritual warfare,” Robertson told the crowd. “A gun is going to prevent someone from robbing my household and raping my wife and there’s five of them, and if I have a weapon, I have a chance.”

“It’s like San Bernardino — if someone just had a weapon. Or Paris. And it would have helped [if the Jews were armed in Nazi Germany].”

“It took Bibles and guns in order to found America,” Robertson added. “It did take guns to send the Brits back to where they came from.” (RELATED: Singer Who Was Performing During Paris Attack Believes It Was An Inside Job)

“What did it take when we went up against the Nazis? Faith in God. Hitler didn’t have any faith in God. There was no Jesus with him. No Jesus with Joseph Stalin or the Shintoists who attacked us in Pearl Harbor. And now we have the current crop. No Jesus with them either. No Jesus with the communists. And no Jesus with the Muslims.”
