Terror Group ISIS Declares Guns Illegal in Parts of Iraq They Control
If you’re a terror group attempting a coup of an unstable country what’s the last thing you want to see? Probably citizens gathering and taking up arms against you. You may be able to scare some uniformed members of Iraq’s military who may not believe in their cause anyway, but eventually enough people are going to get fed up, organize, and fight back.
ISIS (The Islamic State in Iraq and Syria) looks like they are attempting to nip that in the bud early on. According to The Telegraph, this is one of ISIS’ new laws for the parts of Iraq it now controls [emphasis mine],
Any one of its members who breach this promise will have their hands cut off.
“No drugs, no alcohol and no cigarettes allowed,” it added.
No public gathering other than those organised by ISIS will be allowed at any stage. No guns will be allowed outside of its ranks.
All tribal leaders and sheikhs in the area have been warned not to co-operate with the state.
Isn’t that exactly the type of laws that gun control extremists such as Dianne Feinstein and Chuck Schumer want to see passed in the United States.
ISIS continues to make gains in Iraq as the group has seized abandoned military equipment as well as tens if not hundreds of millions of dollars from regional banks. The group says their goal is to establish an Islamic Caliphate in the area that is currently Iraq and Syria.
