NRA (Not Really American) Their Latest Rant: Arming Terrorist Suspects is OK

At first glance that headline is startling, digging deeper proves to be true. The NRA says it’s just trying to protect the rights of law-abiding citizens to buy guns — even if their names appear on a terror watch list.

They fired back (no pun intended) at critics of its opposition to a proposed law banning terror suspects from buying guns in the United States, saying in part:

It is not surprising that anti-gun politicians and publications are distorting the facts to push a gun control agenda.” [Statement from NRA spokeswoman Jennifer Baker to the Daily News].

There was no direct word from the group’s executive vice president, Wayne LaPierre.
The News reported the federal Denying Firearms and Explosives to Dangerous Terrorists Act (click here) has been stalled for eight years — with proponents blaming the NRA and GOP lawmakers for its failure to pass.
Impact: A legal loophole allowed more than 2,000 suspects on the FBI’s Terror Watch list to legally purchase weapons from 2004 and 2014.
Bill sponsor Rep. Pete King (R-NY) remained pessimistic the bill would pass this year, despite last week’s carnage in Paris.
