Everytown to Air Misleading Ad on Terrorists and Guns During GOP Debate has the story here.  Here is he ad:

As you just saw, this ad repeats the completely false claim that suspected terrorists can walk into a gun store and buy a gun.  Nothing could be further from the truth.  According to Amy Hunter, NRA-ILA Media liaison noted on NRANews' Cam and Company last week, if a background check shows that the applicant's name appears on such a list, there is a delay and an investigation by the FBI. If there is a legal reason to stop the purchase, it is stopped. If the FBI cannot show there is a reason to stop the purchase, it goes forward. 
As Amy noted, we should all be concerned about secret lists that some mid-level bureaucrat can add people to and there is no ability to know who or how a name is added.

But that doesn't stop the gun ban lobby from putting out this tripe.
