Over 2,000 People On THE TERROR WATCH LIST Have Bought Guns Since 2004

Government is apparently so inefficient now that it’s allowing individuals on a terror watch list to buy guns.

Weasel Zippers reports via Daily Mail:

People on the U.S. government’s terrorist watch list can walk into a gun store and legally buy pistols and powerful military-style rifles.

More than 2,043 people supposedly under surveillance legally bought firearms between 2004 and 2014, according to a March analysis by the Government Accountability Office.

The FBI is notified when someone from the watch list buys a firearm or explosive, and agents often use that information to step up surveillance on terror suspects.

Under current federal law, however, association with a terrorist organization doesn’t prohibit a person from possessing firearms or explosives.

Doesn’t that make you feel safe?
