Another Victory for the Gun Lobby?

This doesn’t seem good:

Nearly three dozen suspected terrorists were allowed to purchase guns legally in the US over a five-month period last year because US laws do not specifically prohibit terrorists from buying firearms, a government report said yesterday…

US laws designed to protect the rights of gun owners currently make it impossible for authorities to deny guns to individuals on US terrorist watch lists unless they have been convicted of a crime or are in the country illegally.

Concentration is important!
