John Rosenthal Making Crap Up

John Rosenthal, founder of Stop Handgun Ownership and former founder/board member of the AHSA decides to fabricate 'facts' to blame the NRA for Ft. Hood. Not that this is really a surprise.
Maj. Nidal Hasan, the Ft. Hood shooter, was on a suspected terrorist watch list, and even the FBI's Joint Terrorism Task Force was prevented from knowing that Hasan had purchased his deadly arsenal from the Guns Galore gun store in Killeen, Texas.
Sounds reasonable right? The problem? It's not true.

Three senior investigative officials, who insisted they not be identified by name because of the sensitive nature of the ongoing federal investigation, told reporters in Washington that Hasan was never nominated to be on a watch list. He was able to purchase weapons legally and had done nothing to justify even a preliminary investigation, they said.

In addition, Hasan had a security clearance at the "secret" level and received good performance reviews, they said....

the JTTF concluded that Maj. Hasan was not involved in terrorist activities or terrorist planning," it said.

So Hasan got a gun because the NRA forced Congress to allow firearm purchases by people on a list Hasan wasn't even on?

That's the logic of gun control in a nutshell.

Rosenthal is a well-known liar. And he's lucky for that, for if he was telling the TRUTH about the "Gun Show Loophole" he'd likely be doing time in a federal prison.

But again he just made shit up, and hoped it would further his agenda.

Now is the time to attack harder, faster and smarter.
