Marco Rubio, aka “The Water Boy” aka “Cottonmouth Snake” wants to make it easier to get a gun without the hassle of proving you’re not insane, a criminal or a terrorist. Yesterday AATTP reported that Al-Qaeda was happy about the ease of obtaining weapons in the United States thanks to loopholes and lax laws regarding background checks.
The Al-Qaeda Spokesman said,
“Let’s take America as an example. America is absolutely awash with easily obtainable firearms. 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. So what are you waiting for?”
One would think that given this obvious threat to American security, the right-wingers who constantly harp on about how they’re the only ones to protect us would want to do something about it. One would think that especially a TEApublican presidential hopeful like Marco Rubio would want to assure the American people that he wants to keep us safe.
But you’d be wrong if you thought that. Despite the fact that 90% of the American people want universal background checks and Al-Qaeda doesn’t, Marco Rubio, great hope of the TEApublican party ain’t listening.
Appearing on Fox News Sunday, Rubio said he’d like to use new legislation to weaken existing laws by eliminating background checks for people – wait for it – who want to carry concealed weapons!!
“If someone goes to another state to buy a gun, do I have to undergo another background check or will my concealed weapons permit be de facto proof that I am not a criminal? These are the sorts of things that I hope we’ll talk about,”
