Do Background Checks So We Can Legally Give The Terrorists Guns Anyway.....

Right now Conservatives are hyperventilating over the idea that Syrian Refugees might soon be in the United States. Oh my heavens…..
They are concerned that the refugees will not have proper back ground checks and might be terrorists. Oh my heavens…..
These are the same conservatives that make sure if there are terrorists…… and if they are on the terrorist watch list….. And they do make it into the United States they can legally purchase guns once they get here.
That is right….Conservatives who hate background checks for guns suddenly want background checks for refugees……Ironic isn’t it.
But regardless of what those checks find (Terrorist or not) guns will still be legally available them…..Thanks to the Conservatives.
Any attempt to stop terrorists from getting guns is prevented by those same conservatives. Conservatives will have none of it.
Terrorists are welcome to buy all the guns they want. Big guns, little guns, whatever they like Conservatives will be there to cheer them on. Yay guns.
Conservatives….Keeping your family safe by ensuring terrorists can get all the guns they want. Make sure you call them and say thank you!
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 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.
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.y purchase handguns or assault-style rifles.
Lawmakers have tried to stop this 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 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 watchlist 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."
