The federal government currently can't block firearm sales to suspected terrorists, and I'm begging you to close this deadly loophole in our gun laws immediately. The bottom line is this: Lax gun laws allow suspected terrorists to buy guns on our soil. Organizations like al Qaeda are well aware of this, and even instruct would-be terrorists to exploit them in the U.
If you're a suspected terrorist, you shouldn't be able to buy a gun, and I hope you will address this glaring national security issue. Background checks are supported by over 90 percent of all Americans and are a commonsense tool for keeping guns out of the hands of criminals, terrorists and the dangerously mentally ill.
It's time to end the epidemic of gun violence in our country. Thank you for doing what is right for the people of [your state] and the United States.
