The Bible says nothing to prohibit abortion. But it does say to turn the other cheek when attacked, meaning that you should not defend yourself.

Nonsense. That part is about being insulted, not attacked. There are plenty of examples of Jesus defending soldiers as well as advocating for self-defense (telling his disciples to sell their cloaks and buy swords if they didn't have swords... he wasn't telling them to buy them for their investment value!) If you're going to selectively quote the Bible (which is a foolish thing to do anyway) at least do it honestly.

I'm strongly in favor of gun ownership rights, though I do feel that gun safety education should be mandatory and there should be common sense limits on magazine capacity.

I agree with the education portion. Every kid in this country should have to go through a program like the Eddie Eagle Gun Safe program the NRA provides (which teaches that if they see a gun they should stop, not touch it, leave the area and tell an adult), as well as firearm safety as taught by the Cub Scouts (using the Four Safety Rules, as well as to NEVER touch a gun without adult supervision).

As for magazine capacity... I see no rational reason to bother with it from a safety nor even crime prevention standpoint. And crime prevention is a big part of my job. Banning red hats would be more effective but still just as ridiculous.
