Thanks to the NRA, Al-Qaeda can scoop up all the weapons they need here in America.
An American-born senior Al Qaeda spokesman has urged terrorists to seek out guns shows in America to buy arms with no questions asked: In a video, Adam Gadahn delivered this advice:
“America is absolutely awash with easily obtainable firearms. You can go down to a gun show at the local convention center and come away with a fully automatic assault rifle, without a background check, and most likely without having to show an identification card.
“So what are you waiting for?”
Private sellers at gun shows are not required to perform background checks on gun buyers. A City of New York probe found that even buyers who identified themselves as “probably” unable to pass a background check were able to buy guns at gun shows.
As you’ll remember, the NRA fought hard and paid a lot of money to get the gun show loophole inserted into the law, and they prevented the assault weapons ban from being renewed.
I’m actually surprised that it took Al-Qaeda this long to pick up on this loophole. The domestic terrorists, like the folks who shoot up abortion clinics or threaten liberal think tanks, have known about it for years and have been taking advantage of it.
