AL-SHABAAB WANTS TO ATTACK THE MALL? TAKE YOUR FIREARMS SHOPPING 2ND AMENDMENT ADVOCATE: Larry Pratt, is the Executive Director of Gun Owners of America “Over the weekend, the Somalia terror group al-Shabaab released a video calling for attacks that included targeting Minnesotaâ??s Mall of America (MOA). In response, MOA reminded shoppers that law-abiding citizens with concealed carry handgun permits are barred from carrying guns on their premises for self-defense. MOA issued this reminder in response to a citizen named Sarah, who reacted to al-Shabaabâ??s threat by suggesting shoppers should â??bust out the concealed carry permitsâ?? and go about their day as usual. MOA then tweeted: â??Hi Sarah. The mall bans all guns from the premises, youâ??ll note this clearly at each entrance door.â?? Does MOA think terroristsâ??s intent on killing innocents will leave their guns in the car because a sign at the door says no guns allowed? Did MOA fail to note that the attacks at Fort Hood (2009), the Aurora movie theater, Sandy Hook Elementary, DC Navy Yard, LAX, Purdue University, and Fort Hood (2014), all had one thing in commonâ??they took place in locations where law-abiding citizens were barred from carrying guns for self-defense.” READ: http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2015/02/23/mall-reacts-to-terror-threat-by-demanding-shoppers-remain-unarmed/ BIO: Pratt has been Executive Director of Gun Owners of America for over 30 years.
