ISIS Plot: Now Australians Wish They Were Armed

September 18th, 2014 | by Nick Adams

ISIS the best advertisement for the 2nd Amendment

Never before have I felt so naked.

Now more than ever, I wish I was armed.

And I’m not alone.

Any and all home-grown Islamic terrorism should be able, if need be, to be met by a well-armed civilian militia. The United Kingdom has had two beheadings of members of the public in the last two years, with neither Police nor civilians able to prevent it. It has prohibitive gun laws.

With news of the ISIS plot to randomly abduct members of the Australian public and behead them, Australian sentiment on guns is dramatically shifting. It appears Australians are finally understanding the importance of gun ownership, and craving it at a time when the world is increasingly unsafe.

“I’ll tell you this point blank: I’d feel safer in a country where I was legally allowed to carry around a firearm,” says J Coughran, 30, a businessman.

According to Coughran, media coverage of Islamic State is fueling the change in heart: “This ISIS stuff is seeing quite a few people changing their opinions.. one of my mates told me today- he’s coming around on the gun issue. He’s 68 years old, been against guns his whole life- now he’s turning around because of these savages.”

With Islamic supremacism a mainstream interpretation of Islam, deeply rooted in Islamic scripture and endorsed by many of Islam’s most influential scholars, Australians are beginning to understand the nature of the Islamic threat, and studying their own weaknesses in its wake.

Australians are looking to America, and not the UK for guidance.

With this sort of threat, the normal calculus of a civilized society with a small, armed (or unarmed) police force upon which the citizens are forced to rely, no longer adds up.

Kyle, 33, believes that Australian gun control is only making Islamic terrorists in Australia safer, and their objectives easier to achieve.

“Our lack of self-defense makes us a prime target. It is no surprise to me that home grown terrorism is most rampant in nations with strict gun control.

These guys want to snatch random people in Australia off the street, drape them in the ISIS flag and behead them on camera with an Arabic-emblazoned sword. If I had a gun, I’ll tell you what I’d do with those swords.”

It is times like these that Americans should thank God they have the Second Amendment, and crush any effort or force seeking to weaken or remove it.

Right now, they are the envy of a growing number of Australians that wish they were armed.

Nick Adams is the author of the new book The American Boomerang: How The World’s Greatest Turnaround Nation Will Do It Again. The foreword is written by Colonel Allen West.

    AMEN! And if they try to immigrate to the US, because they believe they’ll get killed where they live…… NEVER HAPPEN!

    My name is Andrew Williams and I am an Australian citizen and resident here in Adelaide South Australia. Altough I am a fan of fire arms and have enjoyed them in the past, including duing my vsit to the United States, I must disagree, albeit only within my own peronal exsperience and understanding, with the above as an interpretation of the general curent cosensus here in Australia. The reaction from the Autralian govenment has been to utilise state power and to limit the liberties of citizens not exspand them as geater gun rights would do. Morever, it is my understanding that the goverrnment wold promote, and popular opion would accept, the idea that an expansion of gun rights would allow terrorist greater access to weapons rather than work as a deterent or defence. Just a view from the inside.

    We have a saying here in the United States of America on the subject of being at liberty to own a firearm: When seconds count, the police are only minutes away. There was a terrible crime that occurred several months ago in Oklahoma, but it would have been worse had we not had the liberty to arm ourselves. A disgruntled former employee who was an Islamist Muslim returned to his former place of employment where he had been fired. He had a long knife and attacked the first person he found, a woman who worked in an office. He beheaded her and began an attack upon a second female employee when a man who was one of the managers and who was an off-duty reserve law enforcement member and was armed shot the attacker, wounding him and stopping his attack. The second woman survived with a few scars. The murder-attempted murder trial begins soon. Jihadis can look forward to encountering more armed Americans should they try any more such attacks.

    I feel sorry for you not being able to have the means to defend yourself or your family. I cannot understand a government who will take their citizens means of self defense and then import thousands of people who are sworn to kill them. I’ve been to Oz three times on business and enjoyed every day I was there.
    I own many guns and have permits to carry in almost 80% of the states. Recently I began taking “level 2” or advanced classes. The most recent one was called an “active shooter” class. These classes are put on by our local County Sheriff’s Department instructors. The last class was a great learning experience in which we were taught the correct way to protect ourselves and those around us if an active shooter was present.
    I doubt your government will do anything until it is unsafe everywhere. Then it may be too late because it takes thousands of cartridges and hours of dry firing to get to a level of accuracy under pressure that is required to be competent enough to reasonably defend yourself against another shooter who is trying to kill you and everybody else around you.
    The most recent attack near my home was in San Bernardino. It woke up a lot of people here and most people I know who don’t have their licenses to carry yet, have their handgun and maybe a rifle legally with them in their car. At this point in the US everyone I know either has a permit to carry or is in the process of obtaining one. Our government has no choice anymore about carrying since the NRA got the Heller and McDonald decisions from the Supreme Court of the United States. We now have 6 states that have gone to “Constitutional Carry” which means if you can legally own a firearm you can carry it concealed (no license required). The rest of the states are either “shall issue” meaning unless you are disqualified by a criminal or psychological background the state must issue you a permit or license. There are some states that still illegally demand you have “cause” to get a permit, they are called “may” issue states. Unfortunately “cause” is like a parachute; if you need one (have cause) and don’t have one chances you will never need one again.
    We are all rooting for Trump because he wants our state licenses to be good in all states like our drivers license. Many citizens of foreign countries avail themselves of the states that issue non-resident permits. If they have the non-resident permit they can borrow or rent a handgun while they are here on vacation or business.
