Okay, so if you are on a terrorist watch list in the United States of America, you can still legally buy a semi-automatic weapon identical to the one that the shooter in Orlando used. A bill to stop terrorists or suspected terrorists from legally buying these weapons was defeated in the Republican controlled US Senate in 2015 because of concerns that someone might mistakenly be on the terrorist watch list.
Donald Trump earlier today Tweeted that "Appreciate the congrats for being right on radical Islamic terrorism, I don't want congrats, I want toughness & vigilance. We must be smart!"
Say what? Not so smart Trump also wants to build a wall to keep out illegal immigrants and not allow any Muslims into the country, because some might be terrorists. Using the same logic, would it not have been " smart" to err on the side of caution by not allowing anyone on the terrorist watch list to legally purchase these assault rifles on the chance that they may be used in a terrorist attack?
Still waiting for how precisely how Trump will prevent these tragic shootings if elected.
