Why don't Obama and the United Nations just declare the Middle East a 'gun free zone'?

    I could just see the look on ISIS leaders faces when they see that little circle sign featuring a gun with a red slash through it posted throughout the Middle East.

    They would know that it is all over and immediately pledge their support of a Jeffersonian democracy and convert to Evangelical Christianity.

    I might be making a bold statement but I believe a gun free zone in the Middle East would be even more intimidating than a red line in the sand.

    Just don't make Michelle Obama break out the Twitter campaign.

    Western power structure create all terrorist group like Al Qaeda, Taliban and now Takfiries and Isis and they make lots of films and advertisment against Islam because they want to increase Islamophobia. Islamophobia (or anti-Muslim sentiment) is a term for prejudice against,hatred towards, or fear of the religion of Islam or Muslims.The term entered into common English usage in 1997 with the publication of a report by the Runnymede Trust condemning negative emotions such as fear, hatred, and dread directed at Islam or Muslims. While the term is now widely used, both the term itself and the underlying concept have been criticized.The causes and characteristics of Islamophobia are still debated.Some scholars have defined it as a type of racism. Some commentators have posited an increase in Islamophobia resulting from the September 11 attacks, while others have associated it with the increased presence of Muslims in secular nations

    I think the countries leaders would be the ones to determine that, not the United States. More deaths in America than Middle East.

    We don't care about that because it's a ludicrous point you people keep trying to make. And while we're at it, here are four more of your ludicrous points that you all use to try to convince us that your "right" to own guns because you're scared is more important than our right to stay alive:

    Actually, the former Iranian president said the Middle East should be a nuclear-free zone but he was including Israel, since only Israel has any nukes there.

    Gun Free Zones never have mass shootings, so your suggestion makes total sense.

    They can declare it the moon made of green cheese for all the dictators care. It won't change anything.

    they don't have the authiority to do that. Would you like it if North Korea said we had to disarm totally?

    That would not allow his ISIS member to take over the middle eastern oil producing nations.

    A better question is why do so many soldiers get killed on the battle field when a "good guy with a gun" is supposed to be the solution to the "bad guy with a gun".
