You really have to read between the lines to figure out who the herdsmen are, or who all the victims are.

But you all saw this last week in the news,didn’t you?

I’ll look into Nigeria’s gun laws, but we already know don’t we.

Yeah, they can’t legally own guns. Here in this article the Nigerian Medical Association suggests relaxing the gun laws to curb the violence.

CNN has a story.

If you read the first story, it mentions the reverend and his family were hacked to death. So maybe gun laws do work.

Why do you call it terrorism? It sounds like warring tribes. Nothing new in Africa. Nothing new in human history either.
When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men in a society,
over the course of time they create for themselves a legal system that authorizes it
and a moral code that glorifies it. - Frédéric Bastiat

Ok then Christians are a tribe and Muslims are a tribe. 911 was tribal warfare. Nothing new in human history.

I’m sure the Muslim tribe wasn’t trying to terrorize the Christian tribe, maybe genocide would be a better adjective to use.

In either case terrorism, tribal warfare or genocide, strict gun laws encouraged it to occur.

I know the Bible says blessed are ye when persecuted for my names sake. But come on. This makes me angry.
Do what you say you're gonna do.
