How the Kenyan Mall Massacre Can Easily Happen in the US…Thanks Gun Control

kenyashooting

Last week Islamic Terrorists stormed the Westgate shopping mall in Nairobi, Kenya killing at least 68 people.  Four days later, the armed men have continued to hold off police attempts to retake the mall.

These terrorists executed anyone who wasn’t a muslim or couldn’t answer questions about Islam such as what Muhammed’s mother’s name was or couldn’t recite passages from the Koran.

The first thing I could think of is how easily that could happen here.  The second was how did it happened in Kenya in the first place?

The answer is the fallacy of gun control.

A quick run down of gun control measures in Kenya:

  • The Washington DC National Commission on the Causes and Prevention of Violence categorizes the regulation of guns in Kenya as restrictive.
  • The right to private gun ownership is not guaranteed by law
  • Civilians are not allowed to possess semi-automatic self-loading military assault rifles of 7.62mm or 5.56mm calibre, or of any other calibre from time to time specified by the Minister, or firearms fitted with sound suppressors
  • Private possession of fully automatic weapons is prohibited
  • Carrying a handgun either openly or concealed while in a public place is prohibited.

With all these gun control laws, how is it that the terrorists were able to enter the “Gun Free Zone” that is Westgate Mall and execute the non-believers?

Because the ones executed were the only ones who were following the law.

The terrorist didn’t care about gun bans or not carrying in public or pretty much any of the nonsense that gun control fosters.

Could a group of armed citizens have stopped the attack completely and saved everyone’s life?  Doubtful, but they could have saved some lives by at least making it difficult for the terrorists or at the very least have died on their feet rather than on their knees.

Could this happen in America?  Absolutely. And rather easily too.

A great number of shopping malls fall under the fallacy of “Gun Free Zones” so the terrorists can target high trafficked areas with little resistance.  This incident also showed how effective a nationwide “assault” weapons ban is, so even if they couldn’t buy their AK-47’s legally here, they could always just swing by Mexico and pick up some that the Obama administration smuggled down.

Speaking of Mexico, the country where money talks and blind eyes are turned, it would be a simple matter for terrorists to arm up with all the automatic weapons they want and simply sneak across the border unchallenged.

Once slipping through our unsecured southern border they would simply stroll over to California (the nearest gun control utopia) and rain bloody murder down upon the disarmed innocent people going about their shopping.

Malls are also great places to hole up in too.  An abundance of food and supplies to wait out a siege, take hostages, defend against assault etc.

Of course, if 20 or 30 terrorists storm a mall in Texas or Arizona they may quickly find themselves outnumbered.  And the great thing about malls that appeal to the terrorists would benefit the US citizens.  Places to hide for an ambush, to bide their time, avenues for escape etc.

When you have to go store to store looking for someone the effectiveness of your rifle is mitigated and the law abiding citizen with the pistol has the advantage at close range.

That is, of course, if he is ALLOWED to have his weapon in the mall.

After all, Colorado used to be a pretty pro gun spot, yet the Aurora movie theater was a “Gun Free” zone and that only stopped the people who didn’t want to murder everyone from carrying a gun.

As gun control is want to do, it is the mass shooters and terrorists best friend.  Either here or abroad the song remains the same.

Gun Control and Gun Free Zones should be as vilified as those they empower to commit these heinous crimes.

    I never leave the house without my gun. The worst a “gun free” business can do is ask me to leave. I will gladly leave them defenseless, but I will not be. I will never die cowering in a corner begging fo my life or the lives of my family.

  • Anyone looking the Second Amendment to protect us or our weapons is going to be sadly disappointed. Think about it: The Amendment with the wording “shall not be infringed” is the most infringed, licensed, and limited Amendment of all twenty seven. Furthermore, a future generation of our posterity are likely to see the Second Amendment repealed. This is the inherent nature and danger of optional “rights” versus non-optional God-expected responsibilities, such as the following one depicted by the Apostle Paul:

    “But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house [including spiritual and physical protection], he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.” (1 Timothy 5:8)

    At the same location, you will also find a radio interview Larry Pratt (Executive Director of Gun Owners of America) conducted with regarding the superiority of God-expected responsibilities over optional rights.

  • bullitsfirst,

    Your points about “Gun Free Zones” and carrying protection, etc., are well taken, but this mall thing in Kenya (like all you other examples) were all staged events. You, however, talk of them as tho they were done by “Terrorists”.

    Yeah, they were terrorists alright, but were they really “home grown” or did this administration put them there and orchestrate this ??

    And you payed for their weapons and ammunition, as well as their mercenary fees, via the administration (not limited to the current one), its controllers and their agenda (although the funds for this may have come from the CIA operated drug trade, that “our” troops guard in Afghanistan, for “covert operations”).

    Let’s see, how many were from America ? How many from the U.K. ?

    And now the F.B.I. is over there investigating ????

    Would you expect the same F.B.I. investigation to take place if this happened in Germany ? How about in Poland or Spain ?

    “Hello, F.B.I. headquarters. What ? A terrorist attack in your mall in France ?? We’ll be right here. Let’s roll boys.”
