As Gun Haters Push Bans, More Is Learned About Terrorist’s Violent Life

posted on June 18, 2016

As gun-ban groups and anti-gun politicians and media continue to push for more restrictive gun-control laws in the aftermath of the Orlando, Fla., terror attack, new reports about the killer’s past are proving that guns weren’t the problem—a violent terrorist was.

The killer, who pledged allegiance to ISIS on a 911 call during the rampage, has concerned many for years. He publicly cheered the 911 terror attacks, threatened to kill school classmates, told work colleagues that he had ties to al Qaeda, Hezbollah and the Boston Marathon bombers, and was even investigated by the FBI for terror ties. Recently, a Florida gun shop reported him to the FBI after refusing to sell him body armor and ammunition.

Yet gun-banners, politicians and the media blame the NRA? “We’ve had NRA members who have fought and died in this war on terror, so to suggest somehow that we want to cause a problem or want to have terrorists get access to firearms is not just wrong, but it really is offensive—no question about it,” NRA-ILA Executive Director Chris W. Cox said Thursday on Fox News’ “Hannity” program
