We Face Terrorist Threats – Don’t Even Think About Enacting Gun Control Laws

Despite France’s draconian gun laws, terrorists have once again proven that only good people obey bad laws, and they do so to their own detriment.

It is important to realize that the best security practices, people, and technology governments have to offer could not thwart the ISIS attacks in Paris. Nor will these practices, institutions, and technologies thwart the next attack.
Thankfully, the reality of these attacks is that they can be deterred, disrupted, and even defeated by properly trained and well-armed civilian populous. A handful of properly trained civilians carrying concealed weapons in the Bataclan Theatre could have dramatically reduced the body count, disrupted the terrorist’s plan, and purchased time for others to escape. Terrorists will not select as their primary targets businesses, churches, schools, and communities that can defend themselves from their attacks.

In other words, we need a decentralized (individual action) approach to security in order to meet the decentralized Islamic terrorist threat. Despite what many would have you believe, providing capable security isn’t rocket science, and that’s the good news.
Unfortunately, rather than seeking alternative and empowering solution that can work better than failed models, the natural reaction for some when confronted with terrorist threats is to call for more centralized security measures. This includes people clamoring for a declaring state of emergency, martial law, more surveillance, closing borders, and confiscating weapons from law-abiding citizens.
There are many U.S. and European citizens who believe placing “gun free zone” signs on businesses, churches, and schools will make them safer. As experience has demonstrated, this is a preposterous notion. As we have seen, terrorists and other sociopaths do not obey signs, and those putting up such imbecilic signs only identify themselves as soft-targets, thereby inviting an attack, not preventing one.

The author makes some good points – and you can easily wager that one response to terrorist attacks will be calls for even more people control.

It almost seems like Obama would like this to happen so he can take advantage of another “Serious Crisis”.

We need guns so we can kill terrorists.

 if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet, and the people are not warned, and the sword comes and takes any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood I will require at the watchman’s hand.
