    Here we have a MUSLIM who was known by the FBI to be talking with terrorists. How can we permit political correctness over gun rights to allow this man to buy a gun days before he goes on a shooting rampage.

    No, it has more to do with the gun laws in Texas, imo, and the federal gun laws.

    Not sure why there isn't a law that prevents people that contact radical groups from owning guns.

    I would say no, political correctness did not allow him to get a gun.

    It simply let him remain in the armed forces and and enabled him to kill over a dozen people like a good lil Jihadi.

    To accuse the FBI of being pc is laughable.

    Who's exploiting Fort Hood? - THE WEEK
    If there were "red flags" about Nidal Hasan, shouldn't they prevent him from buying a gun?

    I do not think that military records of current military personnel are privy to be viewed by other government organizations... I am unsure of this though...

    But information or 'red flags' set up by one government entity should be available to others... IMHO anything that is documented within our government like that needs to be available for all types of background checks conducted by all government entities

    Now as for political correctness... if there is some process/procedure in government that slows information sharing in situations like this because of fear of reprisal from BS groups like the ACLU, then that needs to be eliminated.
