As a matter of fact I do.  Are you sitting down? The following is
from Jewish Law, from a Jewish website, concerning that very Bible
verse.  But first, please don't tell me Jewish Law has nothing to do
with Christianity because this has to do with the sanctity of life
in the eyes of God.  It also has much to do with your Constitution
and Christian rights under our current form of government.  

>From a JPFO website FAQ sheet (which I'll send you in it's entirity
following this post)...

"From the sanctity of Life comes an imperative to safeguard Life.
Thus, it is written in the Talmud -- the 70-volume Code of Jewish
Law -in at least three places, "And the Torah says, 'If someone
comes to kill you, arise quickly and kill him.'" The Torah is the
Five Books of Moses; this injunction is rooted in Exodus, Chapter
22, Verse 1. This injunction occurs twice in the section of the
Talmud dealing with Blessings (TractateB'rachos), on pages 58A and
62B. It also is found in the section of theTalmud dealing with
Administration of Justice (Tractate Sanhedrin) page 72A. The
contexts are all different, but the message is consistent: forJews,
self-defense is an individual duty. As nothing in the Five Books of
Moses, or the Talmud, is ever repeated without a reason, that this
injunction is three times repeated suggests it is a powerful
injunction, indeed. "

Here I must interject that the verse numbers in the Jewish English
translation of Hebrew scriptures (Torah) do not match the verse
numbers of the KJV.  I made this discovery myself while in a verse
by verse debate with Orthodox Jews over the events that occured at
Mt. Sinai when Moses received the 10 commandments.  The reason I
said that is because Exodus 22:1 KJV says...

Exodus 22:1  If a man shall steal an ox, or a sheep, and kill it, or
sell it; he shall restore five oxen for an ox, and four sheep for a
sheep.

...and I'm sure the Jewish version of sanctity of life (self
defense, gun ownership) isn't tied to a property law. It's tied to a
moral law whereby a man can shoot first and ask questions later if
his life is immediatly at stake. Such is the case in verse 2 of the
KJV...

Exodus 22:2	If a thief be found breaking up, and be smitten that
he die, there shall no blood be shed for him.

That's what I thought. You know nothing concerning Rabinics or the
Orthodoxy.

Then you're ok with guns and killing in self defense?
