In a stunning display of amazement, Mayor Bloomberg is headed to Capitol Hill to rip Congress a new one for endangering New York City and the rest of America by creating a “Terror Gap” which allows suspected terrorists on the FBI watch list to purchase firearms, explosives, etc.
Hot on the heels of a thwarted terrorist attempt in NYC, you probably thought that it took a diabolical genius just to get the equipment necessary. You thought wrong.
Current federal law specifies only a limited number of reasons the government can cite to block the purchase of guns or explosives — and being in the FBI’s database of those “known or reasonably suspected of being involved in terrorist activity” isn’t one of them.
Can’t believe it? Take a gander.
