Guns, Ammunition & Bible

Have you got your gun yet? Millions of your neighbors have. Americans have always loved their guns, but lately they are loading up more than ever.

U.S. civilians lead the world in private gun ownership: “They own an estimated 270 million guns—nine privately owned firearms for every 10 people.”

Precise gun sales figures don’t exist, but firearm manufacturers know the score. Because of exploding demand, they simply can’t keep the shelves stocked. Sturm, Ruger and Co. received more orders in the first quarter of this year than the number of guns it made in all of 2011. Smith & Wesson said its backlog at the end of the second quarter was worth nearly $400 million, more than double the same time last year.

The firearms industry grew 66 percent in economic impact (job creation and tax payments) between 2008 and 2011. And the number of background checks linked to buying firearms is soaring: 1.7 million in March—up 20 percent from March last year. It was the 22nd month in a row that this number rose. Numbers are still well over a million a month.

Clearly, people are concerned. Many are anxious over economic instability and the potential for societal breakdown. As local, state and federal budgets are cut back, public services, including law enforcement, are being trimmed. A growing number of people just don’t think the government will protect them. Also, more and more believe the world is coming to an end and are bracing themselves to survive doomsday.

Added to these fears is growing nervousness that politicians are about to enact stricter gun control. It’s a showdown:

“On one side are people who say that keeping guns out of people’s hands makes everyone safer. On the other are those who believe that taking guns away only leaves law-abiding people vulnerable to criminals who will get them illegally.”

As society grows more dangerous, they argue, the only source of protection they can really have confidence in is themselves. Are you one of these people? What is your source of protection? This is an important question, because those who lack protection are about to find themselves in a world of trouble.

Given current trends, it’s not difficult to see why people are concerned about breakdowns in social order. All around we see clues that it is unraveling. In an economically depressive atmosphere, it seems anger and hostility are always simmering, ready to boil over. Stories are numbering in the hundreds of gangs of young people committing random acts of “terror, stealing, vandalizing, intimidating, assaulting, even raping and killing.”

Racial provocations and violence have grown routine. Soaring welfare dependency means that any disruption in benefits—whether from budget cuts, a government shutdown or default—could mobilize an army of discontents overnight. A currency meltdown—made increasingly likely by reckless government monetary policy—would transform the country.

On top of these dangers are the possibilities of unforeseen disaster—a terrorist attack, weather catastrophe, major earthquake or disease pandemic. All have the potential to not only bring a high body count, but also to upset the infrastructure and technology our society depends on—the systems that enable food distribution, electricity production and delivery, communication, waste management and so on. The resulting tribulations could spark significant unrest.

Little wonder that people are seeking out ways to protect themselves.

Attorney Lin Wood, who has filed multiple lawsuits to overturn the United States presidential elections, is calling on Republicans to stock up on guns and ammo. “Better to be safe than sorry,” he posted to Twitter on December 13.

“Make sure you have plenty of water, food, flashlights & batteries, candles, radio, 2nd Amendment supplies, and a plan to meet with leaders of your communities. Remember we only have 1 President at a time. Our leader is @realDonaldTrump, not Biden.”

This message came two days after the Supreme Court “refused” to hear a Texas lawsuit that could have overturned the election, and one day before the Electoral College voted to elect Joe Biden to the presidency.

President Donald Trump and his legal team have had more than 50 lawsuits dismissed by America’s courts over the past month, yet he continues to press on in his quest to expose widespread voter fraud. In addition to the Supreme Court refusing to hear Texas’s lawsuit, a Georgia court dismissed a joint lawsuit from Wood and former federal prosecutor Sidney Powell earlier this month. This lawsuit asked that Dominion voting machines be examined for evidence that they were used to tamper with vote tallies.

Both President Trump and his lawyer Rudy Giuliani are optimistic they can expose enough voter fraud to keep President Trump and his administration in office. But about half of Republicans believe the U.S. election was stolen by widespread voter fraud, and many are growing concerned there will never be another free and fair election in America again.

These fears—along with concerns about covid-19—are prompting Americans to stockpile toilet paper, groceries, guns, ammunition and other supplies.

Even before the November 3 presidential election, USA Today polls indicated that half of all Americans were stockpiling food and other supplies. And Smith & Wesson’s CEO said in a September call with investors that approximately 40 percent of its gun sales this year were going to first-time buyers.

That indicates the people buying guns in 2020 are not doing so because they want to take up skeet shooting. They are concerned about pandemics, race riots, and the specter of civil war. Like Lin Wood, they feel it is better to be safe than sorry.

So they stock up on water, food, flashlights, batteries and Second Amendment supplies. Yet these stockpilers underestimate the potential severity of America’s situation.

God has placed President Trump in office to give Americans an unmerited amount of time to repent of the sins that are bringing down the nation. But if Americans do not repent, the nation will descend into civil war.

In Ezekiel 5, God reveals that one third of the nation’s population will die from the pestilence, famine and violence that result from civil war. That equals 110 million people. Such devastation has never occurred in a nation from the time of Ezekiel until now, and it is not the type of calamity a gun can save you from.

Only divine protection can ensure we will not fall prey to the destruction described in these scriptures!
