Response to Sen. McConnell’s telling response to AU ad “Bad Company”
April 12, 2013
Notice that Senator Mitch McConnell’s camp makes no attempt to defend his public-safety-undermining position against expanding background checks for gun sales; that’s because it indefensible. To be very clear: nothing in the ad says Sen. McConnell pals around with terrorists – but we are saying the reckless policy he espouses benefits criminals and terrorists looking to get their hands on guns in America no questions asked, a point made straight from the horse’s mouth in that Al Qaeda recruitment video. It is hard to imagine a more frightening example why the gun show loophole needs to be closed than that video – and it makes it even harder to understand why politicians like Sen. McConnell would not be willing to do everything possible to keep guns out of the hands of criminals - including would-be terrorists - and the dangerously mentally ill, as 90% of the American people want Congress to do.
