Just Like the Movies: Gun Sales Profit From Both Sides of the Battle

        Like the denouement in the recent movie––’Sherlock Holmes:  A Game of Shadows’––the villain, Professor Moriarty, had purchased gun manufacturing companies around the world, so that he would profit from both sides of any war.

This sounds like the same plan U.S. gun companies are following as they oppose any type of gun control regulation.  It’s just more gun sales to them when violent criminals and the insane killers have as many guns as they want.

In fact, gun manufacturers and their gun toting supporters insist, it is ‘a second amendment right’ for known felons to gun down sheriffs and prosecutors, because the Constitution empowers individual citizens to withstand legally elected and appointed law officials who may come to confiscate their guns.

How convenient for profiteers!  Killing people is acceptable as long as gun makers receive profits from killers and victims alike.

As D. T. Pollard writes in ‘Second Amendment Misused By Gun Rights Advocates:‘  “Gun rights advocates have long distorted the meaning of the 2nd Amendment of the Constitution to justify their version of guns rights. . .  All of the noise against gun legislation is a smoke screen for the makers and takers. The manufacturers and gun lobby make money and politicians take money.”

At the end of the movie, Moriarty and Holmes supposedly go over the cliff of death together.  But Holmes has a stolen oxygen mask to breath from that brings him back up from the waters’ depths.  But of course, this is all fiction!

In the desired reality of gun makers against government and law enforcement, as well as against over 90% of the American people who want sensible gun legislation, ‘gun manufacturing Moriarties’ may win the battle.

Unlike Holmes, and his sidekick, Dr. Watson, there are few heroes in the U.S. Congress and Senate to stand up against the ‘gun goliaths’ who wave around their political donations as if they were 100-round ammunition-filled war rifles.

That ‘cliff of death’ could well be the end of the United States as we know it. Through armed revolution between law enforcement and gun rights advocates––which seems to be the ultimate aim of those claiming Constitutional language arising from the Revolutionary War––our nation’s identity would be over.

It would also be over during the control of organized criminals and drug dealers, as in much of Mexico today, and the open machine gun battles on our city streets during the 1920s.  It would be over as well when Americans are too fearful of gun assaults to go out of doors––which is the case in some U.S. cities today!

As any anti-Christian book attests, evil sometimes has a way of winning.  But victory comes to believers who resist, and pray against, such hellish influences. 1 John 5: 4 promises:  “For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.”
