Al Qaeda spokesman urges terrorists to buy lots of guns at gun shows

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?

From Al Qaeda spokesman urges terrorists to buy lots of guns at gun shows

While lots of people are going to attack the NRA about this story, I think that’s the wrong take away. If only the ACLU were as strong at defending the other parts of the bill or rights as the NRA is at defending the 2nd amendment. In such a world, any politician proposing invasive screening, gag orders or limiting access to courts would face the same resistance as politician wanting to make it slightly harder for our enemies to turn our guns against us.
