ISIS Declares All Guns in Iraq Illegal…Except Those Used by ISIS

It’s the holy grail of gun control, as demanded by Michael Bloomberg and his minions as well as Dianne Feinstein and her associates in Congress: a total ban on firearms, other than those used by the government. And what government is embracing this “progressive” stance on ‘dangerous weapons, you might ask? The Al-Qaeda associated group known as ISIS has just made that declaration for all land under its control in Iraq . . .

From The Telegraph:

The Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham has set out a list of rules for residents of Mosul as it seeks to impose its Islamist rules on Iraq’s second city.

[...]

No public gathering other than those organised by ISIS will be allowed at any stage. No guns will be allowed outside of its ranks.

It has been said many times that power grows out of the barrel of a gun, and it looks like ISIS is embracing that idea.

Well of course they do. Conquerors always try to disarm the population.

I strongly suspect US troops had similar rules for Germany and Japan during their occupation.

They very well have a more difficult time enforcing it than the ‘0bama Civilian National Security Force, “as well equipped and as well funded as the military.”’ will when they come to collect ours.

Cool. A gun free zone country. A great place for the American anti-gunners to hang.

Have they banned all fun yet? Has anyone been keeping close tabs on Bloomberg since he left office?

"ISIS Declares All Guns in Iraq Illegal…Except Those Used by ISIS"

What more proof does anyone need to show that ISIS is an obama front gang.

ISIS and Democrats have very similar philosophies—not that it’s news to anybody here.

Actually, that is historically not really accurate.

Most Muslim cultures since the 19th century have used slave armies, with the Mamelukes and Jannisaries just the most famous. They tended to eventually take over the government, for obvious reasons.

There are many other examples down thru history of slaves being routinely armed, often by a noble or monarch to use against his “free” subjects.

Under Communist governments, in practice all are slaves of the State. Some of those slaves are issued arms to use against the rest of the slaves when necessary.

The direct association of freedom with bearing arms is more or less a western civ idea.

I’m not disputing the truth of your statement, merely pointing out that it is not universally true.

Right, but the history lesson is sort of unnecessary...

Everyone here gets the idea that ‘Free men are armed and _________ fill in the blank (slaves, serfs, oppressed people, etc.), are NOT’.

The parallel between ISIS and the Nazis is so obvious, but the MSM nor the WH will ever call these monsters out for what they are...

It sounds like ISIS has stumbled onto the Holy Grail for "peace". No doubt the territory now under their control will be inhabited by flowers, unicorns, dancing hippies smoking pot, Liberals helping the poor and teaching Esperanto as a Second Language, and no crime or violence worthy of mention.

Isn't there some way we can make our Liberals move there so they can fulfill their dreams too?

ISIS is populated with many former Iraqi Bathist party members. Trust they remember well shortly after the Iraq invasion of 2003 that many Bath party members were turning up shot dead on the street or some back alley -hundreds of them.

ISIS just executed thousands of young men. ISIS doesn’t want vandettas playing out constantly (even though it’s richly deserved).

Are ISIS and the Democrat Party joined at the hip? I would say they are, at least via the White House.

USA military did the same thing to the Iraqis. They kind of had to. Wonder if the Iraqis wish they had their guns as the latest batch of invaders were knocking down their doors?
