Fight Gun Control -- Help Al Qaeda

Well, yes.... that's what I said.

You see, even terrorists in the Middle East have heard about the US lack of gun control.  They have heard of our gun "shows" which are nothing more than traveling caravans of death.  Show up, buy a Glock and all the ammo you want... don't worry about anything silly like background checks or anything... just buy your semi-automatic and enough bullets to perforate your average high school football stadium and drive away.

American-born al-Qaeda spokesmen Adam Yahiye Gadahn has spoken about this:  here is a direct quote:

"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?"

That's right folks.  Fight gun control -- help Al Qaeda re-arm.

Largest illegal arms dealer in the world is the US government.
Who is your first responder?

The quote about being able to obtain a fully automatic assault rifle at a gun show with no background check and no ID is the biggest bunch of bull manure I've ever read. Even if someone actually said that, they be completely out of their minds. I'm sure after the arms dealer happily sells an M4 to the Al-Qaeda terrorist, and throws in10,000 rounds of ammo for free, our well armed terrorist rode off on his flying unicorn to commit jihad on the infidel. Seriously? Do you actually believe this?

Been to several gun shows but no on the sly automatic weapons to be had. And I did have to provide id and do a background check to but a gun. Maybe I'm going to the wrong gun shows???

Yeah, never been to a gun show that didn't require ID or background checks. Apparently, we need to find those gun shows featuring Al-Qaeda terrorists on flying unicorns...

The effects of gun control

In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control. >From 1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
In 1911, Turkey established gun control. From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend
themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
Germany established gun control in 1938 and from 1939 to 1945, a total of 13 million Jews and others who were unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.
During WWII the Japanese decided not to invade America because they knew most Americans were
China established gun control in 1935. From 1948 to 1952, 20 million political dissidents, unable to
defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
Guatemala established gun control in 1964. From 1964 to 1981, 100,000 Mayan Indians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
Uganda established gun control in 1970. From 1971 to 1979, 300,000 Christians, unable to defend
themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
Cambodia established gun control in 1956. From 1975 to 1977, one million educated' people, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
Defenseless people rounded up and exterminated in the 20th Century because of gun control: 56
It has now been 12 months since gun owners in Australia were forced by new law to surrender 640,381
personal firearms to be destroyed by their own government, a program costing Australia taxpayers more than $500 million dollars. The first year results are now in:
List of 7 items:
Australia-wide, homicides are up 3.2 percent.
Australia-wide, assaults are up 8.6 percent.
Australia-wide, armed robberies are up 44 percent (yes, 44 percent)!
In the state of Victoria alone, homicides with firearms are now up 300 percent. Note that while the law-abiding citizens turned them in, the criminals did not, and criminals still possess their guns!
While figures over the previous 25 years showed a steady decrease in armed robbery with firearms, this has changed drastically upward in the past 12 months, since criminals now are guaranteed that their prey is unarmed.
There has also been a dramatic increase in break-ins and assaults of the ELDERLY.
Australian politicians are at a loss to explain how public safety has decreased, after such monumental effort and expense was expended in successfully ridding Australian society of guns. The Australian experience and the other historical facts above prove it.
Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws adversely affect "only the law-abiding citizens."
With guns, we are 'citizens', without them, we are 'subjects'.
You won't see this data on the US evening news, or hear politicians disseminating this information.
A government that has total control over the public is an extremely dangerous thing.

Quit listening to the Anti-Gun crowd, who don't know a thing about what they're talking about! Go do your own research! They've done it too, they just twist the words.

Wow if gun shows are so dangerous how does anybody survive them? Oh yeah they are not dangerous. Just listening and believing you is dangerous. Been to many gun shows and look I'm still alive.
Hey you know what they call peace through submission.
Slavery !
People like you were not born this dumb . You learned to be stupid as a rock. If other people (like the military) were not so generous in risking their life and giving there lives for you , you would not have the friedom to spout off your useless tripe.
So shut up while your behind.
Oh and thank a teacher and a military service man that you don't speak German .

Thank you for writing this.

If it is that easy to get a gun,
most americans are playing with fire.

Social welfare and education
can help to solve this problem.

Because there are more good people
than bad ones.

The bad ones know that
and fear it.

This is the stupidest argument I ever heard about ownership of guns. So, I dont get it are you trying to say that Al Qaeda "knows about loose US arms control" that now what?... Are they going to fear armed US sitizens because they cannot terrorize them quite well and have to hit targets where people are NOT armed either in or out of US? Are you trying to say that "due to loose arms control in US" now Al Qaeda should just fly in, buy a bunch of guns and perform a terrorist act? As former military man who personally dealt with Al Qaeda and alike individuals let me aducate you quite a bit. First of all favorite weapon of all terrorist is not a gun. It is explosives, instilled terror, and propaganda. Number two I do not know what guns shows you went to in the past, you cannot buy a hand gun without 5 day weapons permit AND background check or in fact fully automatic weapon unless you have enough money to buy a brand new car. Why? Because assault weapons and machine gun bans do not allow you to have a fully automatic weapons since their enactment. Only fully automatic weapons allowed are the ones sold before those two went in effect. 3) Fully automatic mode is totally useless feature, unless you can design an automatic firearm with almost no recoil and kick. In combat most of soldiers never even switch their weapon from semi to auto unless laying down suppresive fire. Suppresive fire is not meant to be accurate at all, but rather to keep those fools on receiving end not to peak their heads out while you squad members move in closer for the kill. As former US Army soldier I have NEVER EVER fired my rifle in combat at full auto. Even as machine gunner for up armored humvee, I still fired in BURSTS not in Rambo style of bullet spray. 4) Guns are also tools for self defense, protection, sport, bringing food on the table if you are old fashioned like me, and protection of property. In fact by both national statistics and censures over 90% of all firearms are used by normal, non criminal sitizens in self defense rather than in crime. 5) Majority of violent crime is not even commited with a gun, but rather with other easily obtainable weapons or at the ones at the moment. 6) NRA had already discussed plenty of logical reasons to have a firearm. From inalienable 2nd Amendment that made this country free (apparently people like you forgetting that, unless you enjoy invader be they foreign or domestic come to your house, mutilate your family and friends and walk away scot free), to hunting game, to just for (within safe paramenters where no alcohol or drugs involved and everyone knows how dangerous guns are) fun to shoot paper targets on some local range is positive activity. 7) Ultimately crime rates at places where gun control is strict have THE HIGHEST rates of crime across US. From Chicago, Washington D.C, California state itself, to Hawaii and New York, violent crimes are a lot higher at times even in present day Arizona, Vermont or Alaska (three states with the most lax firearms rights).<br />

Live by the sword? Let me fix that for you. Those who turn their swords into plows, will plow for those who plow lives of others with their swords. I lived by the sword and yet I am still alive and breathing today just fine.

bringing food on the table

sorry, but a automatic assault rifle isn't needed for that.

most guns are designed to kill other humans.

But you may be right with your arguments against gun control.

I know it is hard in the U.S. to protect your own property
if the police shows up in 6 hours. That's true.

But you can't control every gun
ever made anywhere
who the future owner it is

That's a fact, too.

7) Ultimately crime rates at places
where gun control is strict
have THE HIGHEST rates of crime across US.

This is a problem
which social welfare could help a bit.

Also education.

But it won't solve, I think.

Because some people are just greedy
and it was always easier to take from other
than to work on your own.

Well, in the end God stand of the side
who have a heart of pureness,
who are really human beings
and not animals.

The animals know that
and they fear it.

First one is talking about hunting with fully automatic weapons...aka, assault rifles. Some people do use semi-automatic rifles for hunting, and that does include those firearms classified as assault weapons. Just because they look menacing, doesn't mean they are not legitimate tools for hunting in the proper caliber. Forget Andrew Cuomo's impassioned speech about not needing 10 rounds to kill a deer...gun grabbers love to play you emotionally, and will do thing like try to conjure images of Rambo turning sweet little Bambi into deer sausage. Gun crime is highest in the inner are on average, almost 10 times more likely to be shot in the inner city than anywhere else. 90% of gun homicides are gang and drug related. Social programs actually make the problem worse. Imagine the city of's had 50 years of social welfare and's that been working for them?

You must remember one thing,
"Criminals do not follow the laws !" That is why they are criminals...

No matter what law you make, you are only restricting the good people who deserve to have the guns.

The criminals will still get them no matter what.

The NRA has yet to say anything. Gotta wonder about people so in love with instruments of death, disfigurement and dismemberment that they won't even discuss logical controls put on the ownership.

Why should the NRA say anything. The statement is complete BS. Go to a gun show and try to get a fully automatic weapon. I double dog dare you. I'd pay for the gun myself if they agree to sell it to you.

Instruments of death is an interesting comment. Let's see, guns, screw drivers, hammers, your belt, your hands, your car, the curtain rod, your tweezers, a fork, a crescent wrench, and the list goes on. So let's all get into a bubble. Oh that won't even work,why, because someone somewhere would cut off our supply of oxygen. And, SaratogaGirl. I love you

I wouldn't expect you to know another's reasoning. Great post. I wish logic like this could actually penetrate the thinking of those so afraid of gun control.

Logic? You think this equates to logic? This is fantasy land material. I won't even bother reading the article...I don't care if this Al-Qaeda person really said that or ain't true. I'm looking at the date on these posts...3 years after the fact. If it was as simple as Mr. Al-Qaeda says, our country would be overflowing with terrorists running amock with machine guns killing every infidel in sight. It's unbelievable to me how anyone could possibly buy into this crap.

I guess... I don't know.

Is that supposed to be an argument against gun control or what?

Right... like Al Qaeda has never used guns and never will use guns. WHAT???

Al Qaeda has shown it doesn't need hand gun and automatic weapon to blow sheet up....just a few sturdy planes. How is it Timothy Mcveigh, infamous for detonating a truck bomb did all his damage?<br />
No guns need to blow sheet up thar missy.

Yeah... maybe in your home town.

The next Mumbai massacre.....coming to a town near you soon.

A bidding war for US arms... between rival criminal organizations... they and the NRA win... everyone else... loses.
