    Jihad at Home: Al Qaeda wants US Muslims to buy guns?

    Mods, maybe move this to the "off topic" thread" for me? Not sure if this is a good fit here...

    The clip linked in the article uses video from a local gun shop in Chantilly. Don't know if its stock video or what, but was thrown off to see their storefront in this propaganda garbage...

    Al Qaeda Urges American Muslims to Buy Guns for Terror Attack

    Al Qaeda has released a video urging Muslims who live in the U.S. to take advantage of the easy access to firearms and buy guns to kill Americans.

    In the two-hour video released Friday, Adam Gadahn, an American-born spokesman for the terror network, cited America as an example where Muslims in the West have tools at their disposal for a holy war against "the enemies of Islam."

    "America is absolutely awash with easily obtainable firearms," said Gadahn, who is known as Azzam al-Amriki. "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?" he asked in a matter-of-fact tone.

    The extended video reportedly shows the logos of Exxon, Merrily Lynch and Bank of America. Gadahn seeks to assure would-be terrorists that striking these targets isn't difficult.

    "Getting to these criminals isn't as hard as you might think," he said. "I mean, we've seen how a woman knocked the Pope to the floor during Christmas mass, and how Italian leader Berlusconi's face was smashed during a public appearance. So it's just a matter of entrusting the matter to Allah and choosing the right place, the right time and the right method."

    The video comes one month after Navy SEALs shot and killed Usama bin Laden in Pakistan.

    I sure would like to know which gun show you can just go to and pick up a fully automatic gun from?

    Obviously I haven't been to any of the gun shows he's been to. Fully automatic weapons are highly regulated, and unless your making a face to face private sale of semi automatic weapons a background check is required.

    I didn't think to look, was the video produced by the Brady Campaign to Prevent Violence? Sounds just like their rhetoric.

    The larger point is that an active shooter attack is probably the easiest to pull off - certainly easier than getting explosives. Get a few like minded zealots together with a modicum of training, and we could have Mumbai here - or worse, Belsan.

    Immediately after 9/11, I anticipated such attacks. They've been a long time coming - but they are coming, and have indeed happened already to some degree (such as the Ft Hood mass shooting).

    Stay alert, especially in crowded public places.

    Stay armed at church, at the mall, and at all other public functions...we can do that in FL.

    I think if/when they come, they{shootings} will come in Gun Unfriendly states, such as NY, Ill and Cali.

    Fully agree!!! In most churches the preacher is about the only one that faces the back door as he delivers a sermon.

    Of all people he should be armed to protect himself and flock.

    So we have the easily accessible firearms and all their videos show them shooting full auto AK's into the air. I understand the obvious point, the active shooter.

    Anybody want to make a guess as to whether this is aimed at politicians who are anti? What a great excuse for more gun control! See, see he even said they would use our guns against us. We must get rid of them before they get that chance!

    All the time not understanding that disarming makes us less safe. And I am still convinced that all those firearms are what have prevented more active shooters from trying. Imagine the negative PR if a CC civilian takes out a jihadist.
    I prefer to live dangerously free than safely caged!

    What better way to get so called conservatives to beg for background checks and more gun control than to scare them with the word "terrorist". This "threat" is way overblown and negligible to the point of absurdity. We are much more likely to be victims of common American born criminals.

    Our preacher is armed. So is his wife and her 88 year old father. We have two gun dealers in the congregation. We have held two CCW permit classes at Church with a total of 62 graduates. Any attack on our little Church would be short lived.
