As U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry entered into a United Nations treaty that supports anti-gun rights, the Chief of the International Criminal Police Organization, also known as Interpol, has openly stated that he believes people can be protected from deadly shootings and terror attacks by allowing citizens the right to bear arms and defend themselves.
Republicans have vowed that the treaty will be voted down when it arrives in the U.S. Senate for a vote.
In fact, Interpol’s Secretary, General Ronald Noble, believes the deadly terror attack in Nairobi, Kenya, at the Westgate Shopping Mall, could have been averted had citizens been able to defend themselves with open carry laws. Sixty-one civilians and five Kenya military personnel were victims of this tragic attack.
General Noble discussed how terrorism is evolving. Instead of high profile targets like 9/11’s Pentagon attack, terrorists are using this opportunity to focus on civilian sites that offer little security, yet attract large crowds, such as shopping centers, gatherings, fundraisers, etc.
General Noble also said that countries are going to have to rethink addressing these issues, which requires a new approach to fighting the war on terrorism. This leaves two options: locations that once had minimal security will be forced to implement high-security, at costly measures, or citizens should have the right to conceal carry, giving terrorists second thought before attacking soft targets.
For advocates of higher security enforcement, this means having theaters, malls, town squares, supermarkets and even churches under high alert. If these areas are subject to intense security, it will ultimately prevent people from visiting.
General Noble, commenting on the Somali Islamist group Al-Shababb’s shopping mall killing spree, even went so far as to say, “If that was Colorado, if that was Texas, would those guys have been able to spend hours, days, shooting people randomly? What I’m saying is it makes police around the world question their views on gun control.”
With gun control being at the forefront of American politics, this leads many to wonder if General Noble has a considerable point: limiting American’s guns will have a tragic effect, ultimately increasing terrorism on American soil.
