NRA Tries to Block Bill Designed to Stop Terrorists from Getting Guns

Congress is trying to cobble together a law to block gun sales to people on the FBI watch list. The National Rifle Association is already opposing it, but disturbing news has been brought to light.

According to new government figures, more than 2,000 terror suspects found on the FBI's watch list have been able to purchase firearms over the last 10 years. Many in favor of stricter gun control laws argue that terrorists are taking advantage of America's Second Amendment rights so they can arm themselves.

Congress is in the process of deciding whether or not a move is in order to put a stop to this, but the NRA claims it will stand against any legislation that would limit the availability of firearms.

"It’s sort of a knee-jerk reaction. The National Rifle Association is strongly opposed to it and the fact is we have only a handful of Republican co-sponsors," said an NRA spokesperson. "It is not surprising that anti-gun politicians and publications are distorting the facts to push a gun control agenda."

According to the NRA, law-abiding citizens might be denied firearms if laws try to block potential terrorists from obtaining them. The U.S. Attorney General would be able to ban people from getting guns if there is 'reasonable suspicion' that they are a terrorist. Facts or proof would not be necessary.

In the wake of the deadly ISIS attacks in Paris, it’s an opportunistic moment for gun control legislation to be rushed through.
