Wow. It is really pretty remarkable when the world’s best known terrorist organization tells its recruits to purchase their guns in the United States due to easy access through gun shows and online sales.
Check out the latest article about this at the Washington Post.
Perhaps it’s time to re-examine gun sales loopholes? In PA, you can purchase a long gun without a background check by engaging in a private sale at a gun show. Long guns include AR-15 semi-automatic rifles. A pre-purchase background check, which most often is completed within minutes, gives law enforcement officials the opportunity to flag, and stop, illegal purchases. See our “PA Bills” page for more information about the Universal Background Check legislation that has been filed. Agree it’s time to close the loophole? Let your PA Rep or Senator know.
