Gun-Grabbers Off-Target on Threat of ISIS Call to Arms against Non-Muslim Americans
“The Islamic State militant group (ISIS) on Wednesday published a propaganda video that showed a one-legged fighter, purportedly American, ordering Muslims living in the United States to use the country’s flexible gun laws to carry out mass-casualty attacks,” Newsweek emphasized.
“Take advantage of the fact that you can easily obtain a rifle or a pistol in America,” the presumed traitor identified as Abu Salih al-Amriki urged. “Spray the kuffar [infidels] with bullets so that their fear of the Muslims rises, and they continue to reveal their hatred towards Islam.”
al-Amriki’s message is emphasized by a tactically-placed photo of semi-auto rifles for sale at a Las Vegas gun shop ( to evoke the Mandalay Bay shootings no doubt) and a confirming statement designed to spook the herd from Nicholas Rasmussen, outgoing director of the National Counterterrorism Center.
“We find ourselves in a more dangerous situation because our population of violent extremists has no difficulty gaining access to weapons that are quite lethal,” Rasmussen told The Washington Post.
Constitutionally-recognized freedom is the problem according to the Obama-appointed insider. It helps to consider that he’s a career policy wonk with a B.A. in social studies from private liberal arts college Wesleyan University, and a Masters in Public and International Affairs from the Woodrow Wilson School at Princeton.
This isn’t the first time gun-grabbers have exploited jihadi threats against Americans.
Writing for the “progressive” Huffington Post in 2008, gun-hater John Rosenthal of Stop Handgun Violence cited a “How Can I Train Myself for Jihad?” manual titled, “How Can I Train Myself for Jihad” that “singles out the US for its easy availability of firearms and states that al-Qaeda members in the US can ‘obtain an assault weapon legally, preferably AK-47 or variations’.”
And in 2011, Media Matters and others were making great hay out of an ignorant video-taped call for jihad by Al Qaeda spokesman Adam Gadahn:
“America is absolutely awash with easily obtainable firearms. You can go down to a gun show at the local convention center and come away with a fully automatic assault rifle, without a background check, and most likely without having to show an identification card. So what are you waiting for?”
No you can’t, but you don’t expect the truth to get in the way of the totalitarian lobby agenda, do you?
Left unsaid is what this country is doing welcoming in those who mean to destroy it. Suggest that maybe we ought to hold things up until we can come up with safeguards and not only get accused of being a racist, a xenophobe and an Islamophobe, get ready for Obama-appointed federal judges to rule that such precautions are “antithetical to American principles.”
Proving once more the truism that for “progressives,” every day is Opposite Day, what they don’t find antithetical are infringements on the right of the people to keep and bear arms. Their solution…? Forget about the mission statement articulated in the Preamble about “insur[ing] domestic Tranquility, provid[ing] for the common defence … and secur[in]g the Blessings of Liberty,” and focus instead on eviscerating the one thing the Framers considered “necessary to the security of a free State.”
Instead they want to let our enemies in and disarm their countrymen. There’s a plan.
