Breitbart: While Obama Says No Guns For Those On No-Fly List, CNN Reports San Bernardino Attackers Not On ‘Any List’

By Awr Hawkins, Dec. 6, 2015, Breitbart

During his December 6 terrorism address, President Obama urged Congress to act to be sure “no one on a no-fly list is able to buy a gun.”

He was speaking in light of the San Bernardino attack and the threat that Americans face going forward. His words came in light of reports that all the guns used in the attack were acquired “legally.”

Obama’s not-so-subtle suggestion was that those guns might not have been acquired if the no-fly list was part of the background check process.

Obama’s said:

Here at home we have to work together to address the challenge. There are several steps that Congress should take right away. To begin with, Congress should act to make sure no one on a no-fly list is able to buy a gun. What could possibly be the argument for allowing a terrorist suspect to buy a semiautomatic weapon? This is a matter of national security.

The problem with Obama’s push for the inclusion of the no-fly list into background checks is that the San Bernardino attackers—Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik—were not on the no-fly list, according to CNN. In fact, they were not on “any list” tied to potential terrorists in the U.S.
