Video: 4-year-old ‘martyr’-in-training fires AK-47

Video: 4-year-old ‘martyr’-in-training fires AK-47

Adult shouts “Allahu akbar!” after each shot.

The video is going viral around the web.

It’s worth taking a moment to contrast this video with one that takes exactly the opposite approach to firearms for 4-year-olds.  That video is the National Rifle Association’s Eddie Eagle video on gun safety for children.

Is Eddie Eagle corny?  Sure.  The cornball starts with his priority of safety for children.  He’s not encouraging them to aspire to martyrdom and an early ticket to “paradise.”

Here’s Eddie Eagle on what to do if you see a gun:


Don’t touch.

Leave the area.

Tell an adult.

It’s like the Eddie Eagle character and his message come from a whole different culture or something.
