SELLING GUNS TO TERRORISTS: REPUBLICANS SAY YES!! (People on Terrorist watch List can buy guns because of the vote)

A proposal to ban the sale of firearms to individuals on the FBI’s terrorist watch list was defeated by House Republicans on Wednesday. 

Reps. Nita Lowey (D-NY) and David Price (D-NC) offered an amendment to the Commerce, Justice, Science (CJS) Appropriations bill that would have given the U.S. Department of Justice authority to block suspected terrorists from purchasing firearms and explosives. 

“Terrorists are knowingly exploiting our laws,” Lowey said, citing American-born al Qaeda spokesman Adam Gadahn. 

The amendment was defeated in the House Appropriations Committee by a 19-29 vote.
