With terrorists and other shooters on the lookout for “soft targets,” former Los Angeles police detective Mark Fuhrman urged gun owners on Friday to ignore rules prohibiting firearms.
Fuhrman said on “The Laura Ingraham Show” that businesses and other locations that ban guns usually do not have metal detectors.
“Stop playing by the rules,” he said. “Do what you feel in your heart of hearts. You keep your gun. You take it with you.”
Fuhrman’s advice comes as the nation reels from the latest mass shooting, in which a California couple killed 14 people and injured 21 at an office Christmas party on Wednesday. The couple, Syed Rizwan Farook, and his wife, Tashfeen Malik, both died in a shootout with police after they opened fire on innocent Americans going about their day. Officials now say that Malik had pledged allegiance on Facebook to the leader of ISIS.
Fuhrman blasted the reluctance of the Obama administration and the media to acknowledge that radical Islamist beliefs almost certainly motivated the shooting.
“With the attitude in the White House, the only thing they probably should be doing is ordering up body bags,” said Fuhrman. “Because terrorists are seeing that a country is laying down and playing dead.”
