    ‘Deadliest massacre’ in Boko Haram history facilitated by restrictive gun laws

    If you told a Boko Haram “leader” Abubakar Shekau that he wasn't a Muslim, he’d try to kill you, and if you obeyed Nigerian gun laws, he’d probably be able to.

    With body numbers described as “too many to count,” but with estimates ranging from “hundreds” to “2,000,” mass murders in Nigeria are being described by Amnesty International as “the deadliest massacre” in the history of the Boko Haram terror group.

    “Most victims are children, women and elderly people who could not run fast enough when insurgents drove into Baga, firing rocket-propelled grenades and assault rifles on town residents,” the Associated Press reported a government official claiming.

    How they got their weapons is yet another example of the futility of “gun control” as this column reported back when the Nigerian government embraced the UN Arms Trade Treaty amidst murder, chaos and terror.

    Per GunPolicy.org, a project of the Sydney School of Public Health, which while anti-gun, nonetheless, provides a valuable resource in terms of gun laws around the globe, “In Nigeria, the right to private gun ownership is not guaranteed by law.”

    “[C]ivilians are not allowed to possess machine-guns, military rifles and handguns … private possession of semi-automatic assault weapons [and] private possession of handguns (pistols and revolvers) is prohibited,” the site advises. Add to that licensing, background checks and registration for what they are allowed to own, a prohibition on concealed carry and stiff criminal penalties for gun law violations, and Nigeria appears to be a land where the results of such “progressive” policies should be evident for all to see and emulate.

    In a follow-up report, this column provided an analysis of what happened when citizens ignored the gun laws and took responsibility for protecting themselves. Doing what the government cannot or will not do, people whom anti-gunners would brand “vigilantes” with “illegal guns” repelled Boko Haram attacks, killing 200 “insurgents.”

    With the lead established by Barack Obama and Howard Dean in the wake of the Charlie Hebdo killings, a smaller scale mass murder that nonetheless was facilitated by gun bans that only the “law-abiding” observed, and out of a sense of inclusion and tolerance, this column declines referring to “Boko Haram (‘Western education is forbidden’), officially called Jama'atu Ahlis Sunna Lidda'Awati Wal-Jihad (‘People Committed to the Prophet's Teachings for Propagation and Jihad’)” as either “Islamist” or “Muslim.”
    That’s despite the fact that if you told Boko Haram “leader” Abubakar Shekau (pictured) that he wasn’t a Muslim, he’d try to kill you, and if you obeyed Nigerian gun laws, he’d probably be able to.

    We can never let gun laws get ahead of us here. If we do we die. it is just that Simple.
    The vultures sit in wait. Apathy is your serious enemy in preventing them from winning.
    These people live here with the blessing of the left like vultures awaiting a corps to feed on.
