Watch An Al-Qaeda Operative Talk About America's Lax Gun Laws [Video]

Submitted by: bliznik 1 year ago in News & Politics

Adam Yahiye Gadahn, also known as "Azzam the American," was a homegrown, American senior operative, cultural interpreter, spokesman and media advisor for Al-Qaeda. American intelligence officials allege that his viral videos inspired Osama Bin Laden to create his own videos. On January 19, 2015, Gadahn was killed in Waziristan, Pakistan, but his words and advice live on via terrorist propaganda Deep Web channels.

It'd be impossible to take all the guns away from Americans. BUT why can't there be a much more strict set of steps to obtain a gun? Right now, it seems, all you need to get a gun is a pulse and the money.

He's got a point. The NRA logic is the 'good guy with a gun' will swoop in like a superhero and kill a shooter before he can act... Yeah right. We are dealing with people who actually want to die, who have the advantage of surprise, who can coordinate multiple attackers with whatever firepower is obtainable. You cannot stop them all. You just have to live with the threat.

So we should intentionally reduce any chance for defense to zero? What are you, European?

That was a reply to Draculya, I don't know how it got flung down here.

I've never seen the NRA say anything about anyone "swooping in like a superhero", you made that up, in you own mind, and no, I don't have to "just live with the threat". What kind of weak-ass bullshit is that?

A Spetznaz once told me that Russia lost the war because they couldn't compete against a righteous believer sitting in a tree for a week eating dried goats meat and a flagon of water. He and his men couldn't die for a loon cause unlike that fanatic.

What cause is really worth it? To murder the innocent because they are safe? Usury and lunacy asks for it.

You are absolutely correct. I don't think that in general, CCW would have helped in Orlando or would significantly reduce the body count of another similar event. Do You think even an outright weapons ban would have deterred him?

@Woodyville06 See why do you go to the extreme of outright weapons ban? How many of these events have been completed with Fully auto machine guns? 0 why? There's a ban. Bans work. I'll grant you this, will we see semi automatic large capacity tragedies after a ban is in place? You are damn right we will, we can't remove every gun in the streets, but you can be sure in 50 years a lot of them will have been taken off the streets. We have to start SOMEWHERE.

@normalfreak2I think you misunderstood what I was trying to say: I don't think this was a crime that gun control of any level or measure would have averted. I believe that he was bent on hurting the people in this club And would have used what whatever means available. He was able to get a gun and he used it. No guns? No problem, make a bomb, he was determined and he wasn't stupid.

@woodyville06 Let's cross that bridge when we get there. Honestly. That's a piss poor excuse to not do anything. If not guns then bombs, if not bombs the cars. It'll never end with that line of reasoning.
