Matthew 26:52

How does one reconcile this picture (or the pastor's comment in the caption section, which read, "Ken Pagano, pastor of New Bethel Church in Louisville, Ky., says America wouldn't exist without God and firearms.") with Matthew 26:52:

Then Jesus said to him, "Put your sword back into its place; for all those who take up the sword shall perish by the sword.
But perhaps the bigger question is, How does one reconcile speaking from the pulpit on matters such as politics and America in light of 2 Timothy 2:4?
No soldier in active service entangles himself in the affairs of everyday life, so that he may please the one who enlisted him as a soldier.
