Could recent ISIS attacks in Paris, Brussels, California and Orlando be just the beginning of the final battle mentioned in scripture as Armageddon (the battle between good and evil)? If so, then should we clarify that this final battle is between the world and ISIS(L) and all Islamic Extremists — NOT against Islam.
Executive Vice President and CEO of the National Rifle Association (NRA), Wayne LaPeirre mentioned on Face the Nation Sunday June 19, 2016 that “they are coming” and “they want to kill us”. I suspect “they” means Islamic Extremists. On that same program, Dianne Feinstein said “they are coming through immigration, illegal immigration, crossing borders, and any way they can get here” to kill. Again, I suspect “they” means Islamic Extremists.
This does not sound like something we can ignore and certainly, it does not sound like the Obama Administration should be bringing plane loads of Muslim immigrants into the United States until we know exactly what they want from America. Neither does it sound like this is a good time to be restricting weapons to good, law-abiding citizens who need to protect themselves against the growing threat of domestic terrorism.
On September 11th 2001, Al-Qaeda killed over 3,000 people on America soil. Now that Al-Qaeda is not the threat it used to be, many Americans have slipped back into their safe cocoons and no longer think about another terrorist attack on the homeland. And yet, that belief is in direct contradiction to the plans ISIS(L) and other Islamic Extremists have for the future of Western Nations.
With recent shootings in Orlando, San Bernadino, Brussels, and Paris, the world is again reminded that there is still risk of another attack from a radical Muslim group (currently named ISIS or ISISL). Whether it be a mass shooting or a full-on attack, we are paying greater attention to that risk we still face.
When Face the Nation host, John Dickerson, asked why people want to see something done about assault weapons that shoot so many rounds at a time, the CEO of National Rifle Association Wayne LaPierre said: “… I think we need to look right in the face of what these people are that we’re facing. They don’t care about the law. Laws didn’t stop them in Boston, laws didn’t stop them in San Bernadino (where they had every type of gun control law you could have), and they didn’t stop them in Paris where people can’t even own guns. They had fully automatic guns, they had ICD’s, they had explosives. These bad guys we’re facing don’t say, ‘Oh gosh, they passed a law. Gosh, I don’t think I can do it.’ So what should we do? The answer is to take them off the street, confront them directly, attack them. That’s what we gotta do.”
LaPierre continued saying: The fact is, “We need to face what’s coming. They’re trying to kill us. They’re not going to attack hard targets, all our targets are protected by the government with guns. They’re gonna go for vulnerabilities…they’re gonna go for shopping malls …they’re gonna go for churches. What every place needs is a security plan that protects it. The fact is we need vigilance, we need preparedness, we need a full-court-press on personal protection. We need to protect ourselves… I don’t think you should have firearms where people are drinking, but I’ll tell ya this: everybody, every American needs to start having a security plan, we need to be able to protect ourselves because they’re comingand they’re gonna go for vulnerable spots and this country needs to realize it.”
These comments bring us to questions about gun control and profiling because of race and ethnicity. Donald Trump said that we need people to report suspicious activity, adding that we should use common sense in profiling Muslims to catch those at risk before they can buy weapons and commit a horrific act. Knowing the radical faction of Islam is a risk to our safety should be a reason to scrutinize a person more closely.
Senator Dianne Feinstein’s interview on Face the Nation should give us all a reason to be VERY concerned about terrorism in America and our safety. See the video below.

Donald Trump on Sunday said the U.S. needs to start looking into the use of profiling to stop terrorism. “I think profiling is something we’re going to have to start thinking about as a country,” Trump said on CBS’s “Face The Nation.”The candidate said he doesn’t like the concept, but it may be necessary. “Other countries do it,” he said. “I hate the concept of profiling but we have to start using common sense.”
