Are we a country whose democracy is active, or are we at a point where our democracy is approaching a state of inaction?

Buy American

In a new video,  American-born Al Qaeda spokesman Adam Gadahn urges would-be jihadists in the U.S. to stock up on guns through the gun-show loophole:  "America is absolutely awash with easily obtainable firearms," Gadahn says. "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?"

Weak gun control laws. A Congressional investigation found that 47 of 58 terror suspects were allowed to purchase guns during a nine month investigation.  The terror suspects passed their criminal background checks even though, "The gun buyers came up as positive matches on a classified internal FBI watch list that includes thousands of terrorist suspects...". Those suspects belong to Islamic fundamentalist and "militia" style terrorists groups.  Senator Frank Lautenberg blamed what he called, "the Bush administration's 'twisted allegiances' to the National Rifle Association for the situation.  The N.R.A. and gun-rights supporters in Congress have fought successfully, for the most part, to limit the use of the F.B.I.'s national gun-buying database as a tool for law enforcement investigators, saying the database would amount to an illegal registry of gun owners nationwide."

American culture of violence.

Culture of violence.

Terrorists are using our oil mainly to buy our guns to kill us...a Win-Win situation for terrorists and oil and military industrial complexes.  Loose-loose for America.  Remember that multi-national corporations do not have alliances with any country...they deal with anybody who pays.  "Federal background checks on prospective gun buyers do not use 'terrorist watch lists' used at border crossings and airports."
