Adam Pearlman, aka Adam Gadahn, has called for Muslims to fall on U.S. gun stores and gun shows, stock up on weapons, and start killing Americans. Pearlman’s remarks are contained in a video released on Friday.
“America is absolutely awash with easily obtainable firearms,” said Gadahn, who is also known as Azzam al-Amriki, or Azzam the American.
“You can go down to a gun show at the local convention center and come away with a fully automatic assault rifle without a background check and most likely without having to show an identification card.”
In fact, the federal government controls who owns fully automatic weapons. The federal government has also outlawed a number of semi-automatic weapons, which are classified as “assault weapons.”
Azzam al-Amriki has a very poor understanding of gun laws in the United States.

Sale of a firearm by a federally licensed dealer must be documented by a federal form 4473, which identifies and includes other information about the purchaser, and records the make, model, and serial number of the firearm. Sales to an individual of multiple handguns within a five-day period require dealer notification to the Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms. Violations of dealer record keeping requirements are punishable by a penalty of up to $1,000 and a year in federal prison.
“Getting to these criminals [all Americans] isn’t as hard as you might think,” Pearlman said in his two hour video tape. “I mean, we’ve seen how a woman knocked the Pope to the floor during Christmas mass, and how Italian leader Berlusconi’s face was smashed during a public appearance. So it’s just a matter of entrusting the matter to Allah and choosing the right place, the right time and the right method.”
Gadahn’s call arrives as the Obama administration prepares to launch a concerted effort against gun ownership and the Second Amendment.
In April, Obama discussed his administration’s intentions concerning gun control with Jim and Sarah Brady, founders of the anti-gun group the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence. “I just want you to know that we are working on it (gun control). We have to go through a few processes, but under the radar,” Obama told them.
Gadahn’s hyped threat will add impetus to the call by the government to further roll back the Second Amendment. It will also act as fodder for the ongoing fake war on manufactured terror and its associated pro-war propaganda.
The fact Gadahn’s Jewish paternal grandfather, Carl Pearlman, was on the Board of Directors of the Anti-Defamation League has led more than a few people to believe there is something fishy about his conversion to radical Islam and joining al-Qaeda. According to the popular mythology, he is “translator, video producer, and cultural interpreter” to Osama bin Laden, who died before Pearlman joined the shadowy group named after a CIA database of Mujahideen warriors.
