    NRA, Republicans block proposed law to stop suspected terrorists from buying guns in U.S.

    "The Government Accountability Office’s report found that 91% of all suspected terrorists who tried to buy guns in America walked away with the weapon they wanted between 2004 and 2014."

    "While the bill remained a nonstarter, more than 2,000 suspects on the FBI’s Terrorist Watchlist bought weapons in the U.S. over the last 11 years, according to the federal Government Accountability Office."

    It seems to me that "suspected terrorists" should be taken into custody long before they get around to buying a gun.

    Demagogue in chief metta, NO LAW would stop terrorists.

    Leadership and strong resolve do.

    The president who first stated ISIS was JV, then contained, then said the attacks were a "set back" will be judged by history as the 21st century Neville Chamberlain.

    Based on suspicion alone? How long do you think they can legally be kept in custody?

    GW Bush managed to do it for years in Guantanamo.

    This reminds me of the time my tea party, christian sister, at my sick moms house back in the late 90's, went toe to toe with one of those door to door other religious people, the Jehovah's Witnesses. Boy, these christians, don't take too kindly to other religions who compete for the same brainwashed fools icon_rolleyes.gif

    It was like watching Ronda Rousey v Holly Holm, Words icon_lol.gif

    Democrat Majority Leader Harry Reid blocked a vote on the law when he was in charge. He has also recently blocked Kate's Law from being voted on because he believes illegal alien felons have the right to stay in the US.

    Reid is blocking the vote because it would pass with Democratic support.

    Nelson Mandela and Ted Kennedy have been included on the Watchlist.
