Here is exactly why Obama’s ‘plan’ to prevent terrorism would never work – especially with him trying to import thousands of refugees.
The problem with Obama’s push for the inclusion of the no-fly list into background checks is that the San Bernardino attackers—Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik—were not on the no-fly list, according to CNN. In fact, they were not on “any list” tied to potential terrorists in the U.S.
Rep. Michael McCaul (R-TX-10th) made this clear on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace, when he referenced Farook and Malik and said, “There were no flags [or] warning signs in this particular case.”
In other words, Farook would have still been able to pass a background check for a gun purchase even if the no-fly list were included in background checks. Yet many law-abiding Americans might actually be denied gun purchases if the no-fly list were added, and that is the reason the NRA opposes adding the no-fly list to background checks.
