    It is the same argument that everyone is entitled to protection with the constitution unless otherwise said so. Criminals, pedophiles, and other convicted criminals are entitled to the same legal rights in a court of law as every other citizen in the United States. The 2nd amendment doesn't have clause that says 'unless you are on a no-fly list, criminal, terrorist, etc, etc, etc". It says everyone and unless someone is going to amend the constitution to deny convicted criminals weapons then their is nothing you can do about it.

    whine about gun control, whine about EVERYBODY being able to buy an assault rifle.

    There is something people can do about it.

    STFU and stop whining.

    “What could possibly be the argument for allowing a terror suspect to buy a semi-automatic weapon?”


    Even if they did have the authority, the govt wouldn't be able to stop him from getting a gun. Just as it can't stop him (despite decades of trying) from getting cocaine or marijuana.

    But giving govt the authority to decide who can have a gun, will create far more danger for American citizens, than having a few nutcases around with guns. History is replete with tons of evidence of the consequences of giving government the power to disarm us.

    The people who wrote and ratified the Constitution knew that. Our current government-uber-alles liberals don't... but that doesn't make it any less true.

    Especially for our current government-uber-alles liberals. The 2nd amendment was enacted to protect us from exactly such liberals, who think it's OK to use government to "protect us from ourselves". And to let us protect ourselves from the terrorists and mass shooters, while keeping government in check.

    There is no reason to allow a terrorist to buy a semi-automatic weapon. It's a stupid question put forth by an idiot president.

    No one is saying a terrorist should be able to.

    What, exactly, would you do to stop him from buying one?

    Make it illegal? (snicker)
