Al Quaeda and Gun Checks
Al-Qaeda spokesman and possible successor to Osama Bin Laden, Adam Gadahn, just circulated a chilling new video calling on “lone wolves” in the U.S. to buy assault rifles and carry out a wave of shootings.
Gadahn informs his fellow terrorists that they have a “golden opportunity” to exploit gaps in our gun laws and kill innocent people:

“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.”
Watch the new al-Qaeda video and share it with your family and friends.Unfortunately, al-Qaeda is correct -- loopholes in our nation’s gun laws let dangerous people purchase firearms with no background checks and no questions asked.
It’s clear that our enemies are ready to exploit this gap in our national security. We need to take action right away to keep terrorists and other dangerous people from getting their hands on guns.
Share the new al-Qaeda video today and spread the word about fixing gun checks:

Let’s make sure terrorists lose this “golden opportunity” to claim more American lives.
Thanks for speaking out,
