Increasing Threat from Terrorist Organizations

From a broad perspective, it can be said that the world woke up to terrorism in 2001, when Al-Qaeda carried out its attack on the World Trade Center in New York City. Terrorist activities have been on the rise ever since, and have become the most pressing issue for decision-makers dealing with diplomatic and military operations. On a global scale, Africa emerged as the most vulnerable region to terrorist attacks in 2010, with 879 attacks and 2,137 fatalities.

Terrorism is a growing concern worldwide. In the recent past, the world has witnessed an increase in the number of attacks by terrorist organizations. Western and Central Africa is the most vulnerable region when it comes to terrorist attacks.

As per the current scenario, Australia has been facing imminent threats by terrorist organizations. In the US, the AR-15 assault rifle has become the most favored rifle for mass killings. The assault rifle, which had been designed for “maximum wound effect” has become one of the most popular rifles, because the bullets of an AR-15 assault rifle leads to rupturing of the vital organs inside a person, leading to instant death. Various versions of the AR-15 rifle have been the standard issued weapons in the US army. On the other hand, in the present scenario, this gun has been used as a mass killing machine by terrorist organizations. For example, the AR-15 rifle was used during the Texas church shooting, which wounded many people.  

Therefore, the increasing threat from people who are using rifles for carrying out mass shootings has led to growing concerns among common people, thereby driving investment against the ammunition industry.
