Our gun-crazy congress
 You can't fly, but you can buy dynamite?


There seems to be a strong sentiment in Congress that suspected terrorists have the right to bear arms.

"I think youíre going too far here," said Senator Lindsey Graham (R-Fabulous) at a Homeland Security hearing.
He was speaking in opposition to a bill that would keep people on the F.B.I. terrorist watch list from buying guns and explosives.

Ther GOP says terrorists have a right to buy explosives in the US?

Yes, if you are on the terrorist watch list, the authorities can keep you from getting on a plane but not from purchasing an AK-47. 
This makes sense to Congress because, as Graham accurately pointed out, "the founders didnít consider flying."

The subject of guns turns Congress into a twilight zone. People who are perfectly happy to let the government wiretap phones 
go nuts when the government wants to keep track of weapons permits. A guy who stands up in the House and defends the torture 
of terror suspects will nearly faint with horror at the prospect of depriving someone on the watch list of the right to purchase a pistol.

"We make it so easy for dangerous people to get guns. If itís the Second Amendment, it doesnít matter if they're Osama bin Laden," 
said Paul Helmke, of the Brady Campaign.

Graham says just because he wantsterrorists to have guns doesnít mean heís not tough on terror.

Democrats do daily battle with anti-science, superstitious handjobs who have the consistency of warm baby shit.
They're tough on terror, but would you like to buy an AK-47 or some explosives, Mr. bin Laden?

How is it possible that we'd ever lose an election to these idiots?
