Rick Warren: Son Bought Unregistered Gun Online

Megachurch pastor's 27-year-old son committed suicide last week


Matthew Warren, the son of evangelical megachurch pastor Rick Warren who committed suicide last week, killed himself with an unregistered gun he had bought online, the pastor said on Thursday.

"Someone on the Internet sold Matthew an unregistered gun. I pray he seeks God's forgiveness. I forgive him. #MATTHEW 6:15," the pastor tweeted, referencing a Biblical passage about the forgiveness of sins.
