NRA on the Defensive After Al Qaeda Spokesman Praises America’s Lack of Background Checks (VIDEO)

In a report from BuzzFeed this week, an American-born spokesman for Al Qaeda praised the fact that guns could be easily obtained in the United States without background checks.

In a video circulating the internet and jihadi forums, Adam Gadahn calls for Muslims living in the U.S. to carry out terrorist attacks, reminiscent of the Mumbai attacks in India from 2008.

“Let’s take America as an example,” Gadahn said. “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?”

Not surprisingly, this development has the NRA on the defensive in light of its unwavering opposition to background checks. On an airing of the show Cam & Company on NRA News, host Cam Edwards accused BuzzFeed reporter Andrew Kaczynski of “approvingly citing Al Qaeda to bolster gun control arguments,” and asked, “I wonder when Buzzfeed is going to start citing Al Qaeda’s pop culture criticism of the United States too?”

    I’m genuinely astonished that they (Al Qaeda) haven’t said something of this nature until now… It just goes to show everyone how idiotic they really are. This is however, an unsettling truth. I don’t see how the NRA can possibly defend “gun rights” against this… I’ve got ten dollars on the “If only everyone had a gun.” Defense -_- absolute… insanity……

    The post above^^ the guy can’t even spell his NAME CORRECTLY (not to mention the rest of the comment). Why don’t you go back and work with your ABCs a little more, work out how to spell YOUR OWN NAME, and THEN re-evaluate whether you should be commenting on news articles.

    The statements by this terrorist are incorrect. Fully Automatic firearms are not readily available. Get your facts straight. An AR-15 is NOT a machine gun. Educate yourselves.

    Figures an ignorant Islamist can’t even get simple facts right. No, you can’t buy a “fully automatic assault rifle” at a gun show. Not legally anyway.

    Second Amendment extremist nutbags (those who deem it an unconditional right without any possibility for limitation – even though Scalia explicitly stated there could be limitations in the main Supreme Court case) should realize that their insane rationale – that THEY are protecting our freedoms, is so much hokum. It never occurred to them that those fighting against “evil government” might have a theological and political perspective very different from theirs. OOOPPPPSSSSS!!!!!

    But the good folks at the NRA are fighting to ensure that we can.

    Sorry, but are you seriously advising al Qaeda to “educate itself”? If only!
