    Is the NRA policy of no gun control ever a benefit to terrorists who may wish to own automatic or semi-automatic weapons?
    [don't panic gun advocates, it is a legitimate question given the history of mass murder in our nation].

    It seems that terrorists are more interested in planes, trains, and automobiles.

    All of which have some controls. Nice effort to change the subject though.
    I suppose we need to wait until a foreign national decides to pull off a Texas Tower, McDonalds style, or Virginia Tech statement.

    PS, silly of me, I forgot to mention that little incident in India awhile ago, seems military style assault weapons are a choice of some discriminating terrorists.

    And you think Stricter Gun Control on Assault Weapons is going to help reduce crime?

    Surely you can't be serious..

    They tracked this Times Square bomber through a VIN number on the Nissan. Standardized VIN numbers to identify vehicles and their owners are a government regulation. Gun nuts don't want guns registered.

    The right is concerned about terrorism up to the point where some of their own skin might be required in the game.

    Right now the No fly list prevents potential terrorists from getting on planes. The NRA will block the No Fly List from being used to prevent terrorists from buying guns

    Simple question....should potential terrorists be blocked from buying guns? Yes or No?

    You can't buy a gun with a Felony Record, unless Pardoned.

    No Fly List.........How do you justify banning him from flying but not banning him from buying a gun?
