During an appearance on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) said expanded background checks are “not enough,” and private gun sales cannot continue because they allow terrorists to buy guns in the United States.
“Can a terrorist currently buy a gun in this country? Yes. Can a felon? Yes. You go to a gun show and virtually no questions are asked,” Feinstein claimed.
Joe Scarborough chimed in later in the segment to echo Feinstein’s claim, asserting, “So now we have al Qaeda terrorists saying, ‘Kill Americans, it’s easy, just go to gun shows, get an assault weapon.'”
