The news is filled with a new Somali terror group threat against the Mall of America. With a large number of Somalis living in the twin city area, this threat carries real significance. Indeed, all three targets listed by the terrorists are gun-free zones. Does anyone really believe that the terrorists will see the above sign and thus decide not to take their guns inside.
The video purportedly shows 6 minutes of graphic images and the terrorists celebrating the 2013 Westgate Mall attack in Nairobi, Kenya, that killed more than 60 people.
The narrator, his face wrapped in a black-and-white kaffiyeh-type scarf and wearing a camouflage jacket, spoke with a British accent and appeared to be of Somali origin. He accused Kenyan troops in Somalia of committing abuses against Somali Muslims. . . .
A long list of mall shootings that had posted gun-free zone signs is available here.Note that all the mass public shootings at malls where at least four people have been killed that took place at a mall that banned permitted concealed handguns.
