Garrett votes to protect gun rights of possible terrorists on FBI No-Fly List
PARAMUS – In the wake of the worst mass shooting in our nation’s history and deadliest terrorist attack since 9/11, Josh Gottheimer today called on Congress to immediately close the gun loophole that allows potential terrorists on the FBI’s no-fly list to still purchase a firearm.
The call to action comes after yesterday's vote where Tea Party Scott Garrett blocked legislation that would have prevented anyone on the FBI’s no-fly list from purchasing firearms, including the assault weapon used in Orlando on Saturday. This vote comes after Garrett voted to keep the no-fly list loophole open a total of 11 times last year.
