Adam Gadahn aka "Azzam the American" sent out a message for al Qaeda supporters in the U.S. to buy guns at gunshows. What do the Republicans do? They make it easier for the terrorist to have access to guns. Now I thought the Republicans were so gungho about stopping terrorism. Well what the N.R.A. wants comes first. As we know the Republicans main duty is to get the President, that whole protecting the people stuff comes later.

Republicans on the House Judiciary panel shot down a proposal Thursday to prevent weapon sales to suspected terrorists.
In a party-line vote of 21-11, the committee Republicans killed an amendment from Rep. Mike Quigley (D-Ill.) that would have blocked firearm purchases by those on the FBI's terrorist watch list.
Appearance on the FBI's terrorist watch list, however, does not alone disqualify people from buying guns [under the Quigley amendment]. That database is designed to track those "known or appropriately suspected to be or have been engaged in conduct constituting, in preparation for, in aid of, or related to terrorism."
Quigley's amendment would have empowered the U.S. attorney general to deny firearm sales to individuals on the FBI's list when surveillance obtained using the Patriot Act led the attorney general to believe those people would use the weapons for acts of terror.
Judiciary Republicans who spoke against the Quigley amendment Thursday ” including Reps. James Sensenbrenner Jr. [R- Wis.] and Louie Gohmert [R- Tx.] ” argued that restricting sales to people on the watch list would violate the Second Amendment rights of those placed on the list by mistake.
Louie Gohmert is the same guy that sponsored a bill on the President's birth certificate and "terror babies", children born to al Qaeda and Mexican women who give birth in the U.S.
James Sensenbrenner is the idiot that voted against $50 Billion for Katrina and tried to shut the House meetings down by taking the gavel and cutting off the microphones and lights.
We are dealing with idiots people. They are worried if al Qaeda 2nd Amendment rights are violated. There are no adults left in the Republican Party.
