Gun Ban Lobby Uses Al Qaeda Video to Push "Gun Show Loophole" Closure

A video recently spotted on jihadist forums shows American-born Al Qaeda fighter Adam Gadahn urging followers go buy guns at gun shows for use in terrorist activities.
"America is absolutely awash with easily obtainable firearms. You can go down to a gun show at the local convention center and come away with a fully automatic assault rifle without a background check and most likely without having to show an identification card. So what are you waiting for?"
Now gun ban lobby supporters like State Senator Don McEachin are using it in the hope of successfully pushing their agenda to close down Virginia's gun shows. The only problem is, there is a completely different set of regulations dealing with automatic firearms so one cannot just go and buy one from a private seller at a gun show. CBS TV6's Catie Beck covered the story here in Richmond and contacted VSSA for comment.

 

Catie has covered other firearm related stories and did a great job again of presenting the story fairly. VSSA will be addressing the issue again this afternoon on NRANews' Daily News with Ginny Simone.
