Tell Congress to Stop Letting Terror Suspects Buy Guns

On November 5, 2009, Major Nidal Hasan shot 43 people at Fort Hood - killing 13. Hasan was able to buy a handgun despite having been under investigation by the FBI for links to terrorism.

It's amazing but true: we can prevent terror suspects from boarding an airplane, but the FBI doesn't have the power to block them from buying dynamite or an AK-47.

It's past time for action. Join more than 500 mayors in Mayors Against Illegal Guns and support legislation to close the Terror Gap.

Tell Congress to fix the federal background check system and keep our country safe.

 


Letter to
U.S. House of Representatives
U.S. Senate
We can prevent terror suspects from boarding an airplane, but the FBI doesn't have the power to block them from buying dynamite or an AK-47. This gap has resulted in numerous shootings – including those at Ford Hood last November when Major Nidal Hasan shot 43 people with a gun he bought while being under investigation for links to terrorism.

We demand that Congress take action and close the Terror Gap today!
