The Republican Party is making us less safe in America. One organization has taken notice of the relentless defense of gun-rights by the Republican Party that has stripped away nearly every single effective gun control law over the last few decades – turning America into the wild west of gun ownership. And that organization is Al Qaeda. That’s right – in a recently released video – an Al Qaeda spokesman encourages jihadists to purchase firearms at American gun shows and launch Mumbai style attacks around the country.
“America is absolutely awash with easily obtainable firearms,” says Al Qaeda. “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?” AP reported that more than 200 suspected terrorist were able to buy guns with ease last year thanks to lax gun restrictions.
So given how our nation has revamped nearly every aspect of our life – from flying in airports to letting the Government spy on us – just to keep America safe from terrorists – Republicans will immediately close the gaping security threat of the terrorist gun loophole – right? I’d guess no. That’s because the gun lobby will see to it that enough of our lawmakers are bought off to ignore the threat just like lobbyists like Michael Chertoff saw to it that enough lawmakers were scared silly to hand out millions in contracts for Chertoff X-ray porno scanners at our airports.
It’s not about security in America any more – it’s now just about corporate profits.
