Californian-turned-Al-Qaeda-spokesman Adam Gadahn just published a new video, where he “calls on Muslims living in America to carry out deadly one-man terrorist acts using fully automatic weapons purchased at gun shows, and to target major institutions and public figures.”

While we should take his threat seriously, we should also note his lack of intelligence.

If you should get lucky and find a “fully automatic weapon” at a gun show, plan to invest months in getting it home. Sales were severely curtailed in 1934, via the National Firearms Act, and restricted further by the Firearm Owners Protection Act of 1986.

Here’s a few of the ATF requirements:

  • You have to apply to the ATF to transfer the firearm.
  • You have to pay a $200 tax.
  • Guns made after May 20, 1986 are banned from civilian sale.
  • Your application must be approved by the “local chief of police, sheriff of the county, head of the State police, or State or local district attorney or prosecutor.”

Because of these restrictions, “fully automatic weapons” cost about as much as a late model used car.

What do you call somebody who remains thousands of miles away and exhorts others to die for his agenda?

Former civilian disarmament supporter and medical researcher Howard Nemerov investigates the civil liberty of self-defense and examines the issue of gun control, resulting in his book Four Hundred Years of Gun Control: Why Isn’t It Working? He appears frequently on NRA News as their “unofficial” analyst and was published in the Texas Review of Law and Politics with David Kopel and Carlisle Moody.
