USEFUL IDIOTS: Dems Say Paris is Why We Need Tighter Gun Laws

A Democratic lawmaker says the Paris attacks should motivate Congress to pass tighter gun laws.

Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.) warned that the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) is encouraging sympathizers to purchase weapons in the U.S.

“Obviously it is frightening for every Western country, but I do want to remind you, before we killed a jihadist named [Anwar al-] Awlaki, he did a video that said to Americans, ‘join the Jihad and get guns, because it’s so easy in the United States of America to get a weapon,” Schakowsky told Sirius XM radio this week, as first reported by BuzzFeed Politics.

“And that ought to be a chilling reminder because, aside from blowing themselves up, which is, of course, not about small weapons, these people used the kinds of weapons that are still available in the United States of America,” she continued.

“I think it ought to cause us to have another consideration of sensible gun-safety laws.”

According to reports, terrorists in the Paris attack used fully automatic weapons.

Schakowsky was pressed on how the terrorists had guns in France, which has much tougher restrictions on firearms.
