Should We Arm American Terrorists?
90% of Americans say of course not!
Yet, even a bill with ample due process, like Republican Senator Susan Collins’ bill, was voted down by Republicans.
Collins’ bill would allow any American citizen or non-citizen resident(!) to appeal a denial of a gun purchase. It put the burden of proof on the government to show the individual is suspected of terrorism. And it even allowed people who win their appeals to recover their costs and attorney’s fees(!)
Yet while every Democrat voted for it, the vast majority of Republicans voted it down.
It seems the vast majority of Republicans would rather arm terrorists in America than risk losing the millions in donations they get from the NRA.
They would murder ISIS members by drone (with no due process) if they are on the other side of the globe.
But if ISIS is right here and living among us, the GOP would make sure they are massively armed with AR-15s, explosives, and thousands of rounds of bullets. They do everything but show ISIS the address of the nearest church or nightclub.
How can they possibly defend this?
