The Democrats are using the terrorist attacks that took place this past weekend as their justification for gun control legislation.
Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) addressed the Senate floor on Monday where he blamed Republicans for stopping the Democrat’s proposed gun control legislation.
“In the aftermath of these attacks, our constituents are looking to us for help. They want to feel safe. They want to be safe. We can help provide that safety by closing the terror loophole. But Democrats can’t do it alone. We need Republicans’ help,” Reid said.
“Currently, there is a loophole in our law that allows potential FBI terror suspects to legally purchase guns and explosives. Stop and think about that for just a little bit: A person with suspected ties to terrorism can walk into a store now and buy all the explosives, all the guns and all the ammunition they want,” Reid argued.
See, terrorists stab people in a mall, and set bombs to kill us and Reid uses it to attack gun rights? It would see that Reid is far less interested in preventing terror attacks, the one in Minnesota was stopped by a man who is a firearms instructor by the way, than he is in preventing Americans from having firearms. Consider this nugget of idiocy from Reid
“We can argue from now on about whether this bill would have prevented this weekend’s attacks,” Reid said. “But one thing is for sure, it would prevent the next attack.”
Really? It would prevent a terrorist who broke multiple laws to commit Jihad? What type of fool would utter such nonsense. Senator Weasel Dick, that is who!
