The Second Amendment is the Antidote to Lone Wolf Terrorism

Dear NRA, JPFO, SAF, and all other Second Amendment advocacy groups,

You are missing the biggest PR opportunity in history if you do not band together and seize this moment when we face the threat of lone wolf terrorism. Here is the context in which we must teach the truth:

From Canada.com: “ISIS to Canadians: ‘You will not feel secure in your bedrooms’”

The spokesman for the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham called for attacks on Canadians on Sunday in an apparent attempt to deter members of the military alliance that has formed to challenge the terrorist group.

In a 42-minute audio speech, Abu Muhammad Al-Adnani urged ISIS supporters to kill Canadians, Americans, Australians, French and other Europeans, regardless of whether they were civilians or members of the military.

“Rely upon Allah, and kill him in any manner or way however it may be. Do not ask for anyone’s advice and do not seek anyone’s verdict. Kill the disbeliever whether he is civilian or military, for they have the same ruling,” he said.

“Both of them are disbelievers. Both of them are considered to be waging war. Both of their blood and wealth is legal for you to destroy, for blood does not become illegal or legal to spill by the clothes being worn.”

Canada is part of a U.S.-led alliance that has begun mobilizing to defeat ISIS, which has been committing widespread atrocities against Syrians and Iraqis in an attempt to impose its barbaric version of Islamic law in the region.

Here’s our message:

Islamists want you to tremble in fear at the threat of “lone wolf” attacks. This is a key example for why America’s Founders provided us with the Second Amendment. No State security agency can guarantee your protection from all potential harm—citizens are an integral part of the defense of the homeland.

While ISIS and others hope to flood YouTube with videos of more innocents being beheaded, it’s up to everyday Americans to take responsibility for their own safety, and the protection of our neighbors. The Second Amendment enables us to live in vigilant peace, knowing if enemies threaten, millions of faithful citizens are ready to respond, and to provide cameras with a very different scene.

Do not cower in fear, Americans—stand up and defend freedom.
