Terrorists Can Buy Guns Say Republicans

9
Anyone on the FBI terrorist watch list can be prevented from getting on an airplane, but he definitely can buy a gun, even an AK-47 assault weapon, without restraint say Congressional Republicans, according to a column by Gail Collins in today's New York Times, where she says "There seems to be a strong sentiment in Congress that the only constitutional right suspected terrorists have is the right to bear arms." She quotes  Senator Lindsey Graham (SC, R), who spoke in opposition to a bill offered by Senator Frank Lutenberg (NJ, D) which would allow the government to stop gun sales to people on the watch list, just as it can already do to people with felony convictions.
