Why ISIS Loves The NRA

May 9, 2017

The Islamic State has urged its adherents to buy weapons from gun shows in the United States to take advantage of gun control laws.  That should not be a shocking news item.  After all the lax and often meaningless gun laws in this nation has long been a source for those who seek to do damage to individuals.

“The acquisition of firearms can be very simple depending on one’s geographical location,” says a new piece in Rumiyah, ISIS’s propaganda magazine, the Washington Post reports. “In most U.S. states, anything from a single-shot shotgun all the way up to a semi-automatic AR-15 rifle can be purchased at showrooms or through online sales — by way of private dealers — with no background checks, and without requiring either an ID or a gun license.  With approximately 5,000 gun shows taking place annually within the United States, the acquisition of firearms becomes a very easy matter,” the article continues. A photo caption says, “Gun conventions represent an easier means of arming oneself for an attack.”

With that as a starting point the questions I ask is much clearer for readers to grasp.

What do gun lobby lapdogs in Congress and ISIS have in common? They love permissive gun laws that allow absolutely anyone, no matter how dangerous, to buy guns.

As reported this week ISIS’ top propaganda magazine is once again encouraging recruits to buy their guns in the U.S. Why you ask?  Well I respond with “why not”?

Because in most states you can buy a gun at a gun show or online with no background check and no questions asked — even if you’re an ISIS  terrorist. And Congress is letting them get away with it.  I might add to make my point more clear.  Gleefully letting them get away with it!

FBI Director James Comey has said finishing the job by expanding Brady background checks to every gun sale would keep guns out of dangerous hands.   I know we all are aware that Trump and and his followers are not about to close the loopholes that make America an easy place for terrorists to shop for guns.

But at least you, dear reader, are now more aware of what is happening.
