One of the great things about the internet is the powerful reach people can have when trying to get their message out.
Unfortunately this provides an easy outlet for extremely evil people to get their message out, as well. This is one way ISIS has been able to encourage their followers to murder thousands of people around the world. They actually publish information that gives tips on different things their supporters can do to murder as many people as possible.
New Idea. ISIS’s latest idea, published in one of their online sites, explains how Islamic terrorists can acquire firearms in the United States and Europe. They go into great detail on places to target and where to try and get firearms. From PJ Media:
Jihadists are told that Europeans should try to acquire guns in conflict zones or from underground dealers, and “much like its Crusader European counterparts, the UK faces a gun control dilemma as it feebly attempts to fend off the influx of weapons, but to no avail” so attackers are advised to find guns “readily available for purchase on the streets of Britain.”
In the United 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,” ISIS states. “And with approximately 5,000 gun shows taking place annually within the United States, the acquisition of firearms becomes a very easy matter.”
They include a picture of an unidentified gun show with the caption, “Gun conventions represent an easier means of arming oneself for an attack.”
Of course, ISIS is getting bad advice about purchasing firearms from the left, no doubt. They’re going to have a hard time legally purchasing firearms if they follow the above advice. But they take it even further, which is more horrifying.
Gun shops. Gun shops are now considered a target. Even though gun shop owners would certainly be armed, being ambushed by an Islamic terrorist is not something one would expect. From PJ Media:
Alternatively, after some simple reconnaissance, one could follow the shop owner after he’s closed for the day, ambush him or run him over with a vehicle, and then take his keys in order to gain access to the store’s arsenal and any other location where he might be storing firearms and ammunition,” the advice continues. “Such targets, though potentially offering a considerable gain in terms of ghanimah [booty], are ambitious in nature and should be pursued while keeping in mind that tactical and gun shop owners are normally the type who arm and train themselves and would not be as averse to engaging in a firefight when attacked.”
Why this matters? It matters because ISIS is never going to stop. They are now targeting new places and explaining to their psychotic followers just how they should go about gaining guns illegally and getting more by attempting to kill gun shop owners. Unfortunately there are psychotic followers of this extremism that could actually carry these types of attacks out.
Gun shop owners have probably been targets for years and are certainly trained for all sorts of different scenarios, but it’s still disturbing to know that even more innocent people are being specifically targeted.
