"... Americans today possess about 300 million firearms. No one can be under the illusion that limiting their number and use would be enough to impede horrendous massacres ... But it would be much worse if we were to satisfy ourselves with only words. And if the massacres are carried out by people with mental illness or distorted by hate, there is no doubt that they are carried out with arms. Forty-seven religious leaders of various confessions and religions have issued a call to American politicians to limit firearms ... I’m with them. ... Therefore, it is necessary to repeat tirelessly our calls for disarmament, to oppose the production, trade and smuggling of arms of all types, fueled by dishonourable interests for power of financial gain… Peace is born from the heart, but it will be easier to achieve if we have fewer weapons in hand.” - Vatican Radio, 1/19/2013
