New Bill Gives the Attorney General the Power to Block Gun Sales
to ‘Suspected’ Terrorists
Democrats in the House and Senate want to give the U.S. attorney general – that would be Eric Holder – the power to block the sale of guns and explosives to known terrorists, and also to anyone who is “appropriately suspected” of being a terrorist.
From the Blaze:
Under the bill, the attorney general would be able to stop the transfer of a gun or explosive to a “known or suspected” terrorist if it’s possible the person might use the firearm in connection with terrorism. The bill language says the attorney general can stop the transfer if he or she “has a reasonable belief that the prospective transferee may use a firearm in connection with terrorism.”
I am 100% in support of fighting terror and keeping weapons out of the hands of “true terrorists.”
Just don’t let Holder do it. And don’t pass a new law.
So goes ammo under the current m855 controversy, so goes personal freedom under any legislation giving any more authority to the current administration.
