Gun Shop Owner Helps Foil Terror Plot

posted on July 7, 2016

While Hillary Clinton and other gun-ban politicians like to make it sound like America’s gun shop owners are an enemy, the truth is actually much different. In fact, a gun shop owner in Virginia last week helped thwart an ISIS-inspired terror plot that easily could have resulted in the murder of many innocent citizens. 

Mohamed Bailor Jalloh, a former member of the National Guard, tried to purchase an AR-15 from Blue Ridge Arsenal in Chantilly, Va., last Friday, but was sent away because he wasn’t carrying proper identification. The FBI entered the store after he left and asked store owner Earl Curtis to allow him to return and buy a gun so the FBI could take him into custody. 

Jalloh—who, according to court documents, was planning a terror attack—returned with the proper identification and was sold an AR-15, which store employees disabled before he left the store. Shortly after, he was taken into custody. 

“Normally, if we have some inkling that something isn’t right, we would turn down a sale like that,” Curtis told the New York Daily News. “But with the FBI catching a terrorist, we’re happy to help.”
