Terror suspects legally purchased guns

Terror suspects legally purchased guns in the United States from 2004 to 2014 says FBI

This statement was taken from a new FBI study that was recently released. Now when hearing something like this, your immediate reaction might be to scream “WHAT THE F*#&$?” and take your computer screen and throw it at the TV while Nancy Pelosi is squawking about gun violence and global warming on CSPAN, but lets think about this for a minute……

Ask you self, how many of these so called “terrorists” used these legally purchased guns in any kind of attack against anyone let alone US citizens. The answer is ZERO. None of these guns have and will ever be used in any terrorist attack, because these bullshit statistics are nothing more then a scare tactic to make you and everyone else so terrified of guns that it forces you to side with the anti-gunners and make a quick and rash decision to pass some kind of pointless gun legislation that will restrict law abiding gun owners from practicing their 2nd amendment right to bear arms.

Read this bullshit article below and remember that “terrorists”, criminals or anyone with the intent to do harm to someone, can get firearms, knifes, cars, baseball bats, or anything else that be used as a weapon anywhere. New legislation regarding legal gun purchases and ownership will not stop evil from obtaining anything ever, let alone firearms.

Last time I checked drugs were illegal, but drug abuse is one of the largest problems facing our country today. We have harsh penalties for the possession and distribution of these illegal drugs, but don’t have the same vigorous attitude toward rehabilitation and treatment for our own people who have fallen into the trap of this deadly disease. America is quick to punish people for breaking the law, but then gives no solution to combating the problem and helping its citizens to avoid repeating the same mistake over and over and keeping them out of jail or worse, death.

This is the same concept they are trying to push on us with gun control. Lets ban all guns now! which translates to this: Once law abiding citizens are banned from purchasing or possessing firearms, then what will happen? Will crime automatically drop? will murders decrease? will school shooting be a thing of the past?

Unfortunately NO!

because these politicians forgot one major thing….

CRIMINALS DON’T FOLLOW LAWS!

Given France’s strict gun laws, the terrorists who attacked Paris on Friday may have turned to black market sources for the weapons they used. But in the United States, known and suspected terrorists are allowed to purchase firearms under federal law.

“Membership in a terrorist organization does not prohibit a person from possessing firearms or explosives under current federal law,” the Government Accountability Office concluded in 2010. The law prohibits felons, fugitives, drug addicts and domestic abusers from purchasing a firearm in the United States. But people on the FBI’s consolidated terrorist watchlist — typically placed there when there is “reasonable suspicion” that they are a known or suspected terrorist — can freely purchase handguns or assault-style rifles. Terror suspects legally purchased guns.

And, as the GAO found, a number of them do: Terror suspects legally purchased guns. Between 2004 and 2014, suspected terrorists attempted to purchase guns from American dealers at least 2,233 times. And in 2,043 of those cases — 91 percent of the time — they succeeded. There are about 700,000 people on the watch-list — a point that civil libertarians have made to underscore that many on the list may be family members or acquaintances of people with potential terrorist connections.

That total number is a floor, since the 2011 and 2012 numbers include only partial data because of a programming error that the FBI subsequently fixed, according to the GAO. Overall, looking back toward 2007, the annual number of attempted gun purchases by terror suspects has generally held steady and may be declining slightly year-over-year.

Lawmakers have tried to stop Terror suspects legally purchased guns from happening. Bills have been introduced in Congress to do just that, going as far back as 2007 at the behest of then-Attorney General Alberto Gonzales.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) and Rep. Peter T. King (R-N.Y.) introduced a bill to do that earlier this year. The “Denying Firearms and Explosives to Dangerous Terrorists Act of 2015” would prevent Terror suspects legally purchased guns several hundred gun purchases by suspected terrorists each year, and it includes provisions to let people challenge a denial if they believe they were placed on the watch list in error.

But these bills have rarely made it out of committee, in part due to vehement opposition from the National Rifle Association and its allies in Congress. The NRA objected to earlier versions of the bill, saying they were “aimed primarily at law-abiding American gun owners,” that “prohibiting the possession of firearms doesn’t stop criminals from illegally acquiring them,” and that the bills were “sponsored by gun control extremists.”

I reached out to the NRA to find out if they were similarly opposed to this year’s Feinstein/King bill but they have not yet responded. This piece will be updated if they do.  A 2012 survey conducted by conservative pollster Frank Luntz, for pro-gun-control group Everytown USA, found that 76 percent of American gun owners, including 71 percent of NRA members, supported prohibiting people on the terror watch list from buying guns.

The biggest knock against the proposed legislation is perhaps that the FBI’s watch list is an imperfect tool for assessing an individual’s terror threat. Civil libertarians warn that the watch list has ballooned in size to nearly 700,000 individuals in recent years. Many of those people may simply be family members, acquaintances or people only marginally acquainted with individuals who actually belong to terror groups. The NRA and its allies are worried that perfectly law-abiding people may end up on a watch list and be unable to purchase a gun.

No one is against Terrorists purchasing firearms, but show me one incident where these so called Terror suspects legally purchased guns and used them against american citizens in a terror attack. IT DOESN’T EXIST. Criminals don’t purchase guns legally, just like drugs they turn to the black market to get these weapons to kill.
