 Terrorists buying firearms in America

The NRA supports terrorists:
Dozens of terror suspects on federal watch lists were allowed to buy firearms legally in the United States last year, according to a Congressional investigation that points up major vulnerabilities in federal gun laws....

The [Government Accountability Office] study offers the first full-scale examination of the possible dangers posed by gaps in the law, Congressional officials said, and it concludes that the Federal Bureau of Investigation "could better manage" its gun-buying records in matching them against lists of suspected terrorists....

At least 44 times from February 2004 to June, people whom the F.B.I. regards as known or suspected members of terrorist groups sought permission to buy or carry a gun, the investigation found.

In all but nine cases, the F.B.I. or state authorities who handled the requests allowed the applications to proceed because a check of the would-be buyer found no automatic disqualification like being a felon, an illegal immigrant or someone deemed "mentally defective," the report found.

Ask yourself: why do the NRA and its Republican backers hate America?

It isn't so much that they hate America, it's just that they really, really, really, REALLY love guns.

If one of the main purposes of the 2nd amendment is to keep the government's power in check through an armed populace, then why do NRA members consistently undermine this by voting for politicians who strengthen the military? Don't they see that as even slightly counterproductive?

The day Heston dies, every paper needs to run the headline, "Charleton Heston's Gun Stolen." I know that I, for one, have been waiting years to pry that sucker away.

It is interesting to me that this is an issue. Can you tell me one case of a terrorist, and I guess I mean an Arab one who has used a gun to terrorize the U.S. I know they used airplanes and Ryder trucks.
