Chapter Forty-Seven of Keeping Score In America: The Right To Bear Arms
By Michael Moriarty
At this juncture, the beginning of my 48th chapter of Keeping Score, I’ve reached the mildly impressive age of 73. Considering how I spent a few of my years, I’m certainly blessed to be breathing at all.
Yet I am also “Keeping Score” of this Earth’s Battle Between Good and Evil. The No Man’s Land between Good and Evil is actually Humanity itself.
The Heroes and Villains of Life rise above us to dominate the world stage for the most melodramatic moments of Mankind’s Eternal Unfolding… I, despite appearances, am an optimist and therefore consider The Eternal Human Race a slam dunk.
What now gives me that certainty? America’s Second Amendment, the right to bear arms.
Despite the apparent conflict between Vladimir Putin’s Neo-Soviet ambitions for a Neo-Communist New World Order and the United Nations’ desires for their own version of a Progressive New World Order, both ends of this seeming disagreement are working for basically the same end.
To take away an individual’s right to bear arms.
So, as I’ve said before, both Putin and Obama are working together.
Tragically their agreed-upon objective, to disarm the human race, will necessitate a World War III.
Why? Their idea of “The Population Problem.”
That “Problem”, in their minds, can only be cured by a huge war.
A World War III.
When both leaders of both sides of this war have the objective of taking away humanity’s right to bear arms?
What is taking them so long to achieve that end? Too many individual human beings, particularly in America, have weapons in their homes legally.
The real enemy for both of these seeming opponents of a major world conflict, Putin’s New-Soviet Russia and America’s Obama Nation: individual freedom that is most emphatically supported by the American individual’s Second Amendment right, the individual American’s freedom to bear arms.
Numerous members of American law enforcement are coming out in favor of an American citizen’s right to bear arms.
As one law enforcement officer declared in support of The Second Amendment, “Folks are sick and tired of being victims!”
Americans who feel utterly justified in bearing arms begin to see their “own best friends”… seeming best friends… what some call “Neo-Conservatives”… aiding and abetting The Progressive New World Order.
Here’s the rub.
The so-called, favorite villain of the “True Conservatives”, Marco Rubio, has spoken unequivocally on behalf of the American right to bear arms.
No other country in the world has a constitutional right to bear arms like America’s Second Amendment.
God bless… and does bless… America’s Second Amendment, the individual American’s right to defend himself and his freedom.
So, as I’ve already said, I consider Eternity, the permanence of the human race and each individual’s worldwide right to bears arms… all are sacred and, at least in my God’s eyes, a “slam dunk”!
Why? Man has no other option for his own survival than protecting his individual right to bear arms.
I’ve never owned a firearm and never intend to.
That, however, should be my choice as a law-biding citizen.
Not the government’s.
