“And for those who are concerned about terrorism, some may be aware of the fact that we have a no-fly list where people can't get on planes, but those same people who we don't allow to fly could go into a store right now in the United States and buy a firearm, and there's nothing that we can do to stop them. That's a law that needs to be changed,” Obama said. http://www.cnsnews.com/news/article...lerted-when-someone-no-fly-list-tries-buy-gun FBI Director: FBI Is Alerted When Someone on Terror Watch List Tries to Buy a Gun FBI Director James Comey told the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday that his agency is notified when someone on the terrorist watch list tries to buy a gun and that there are various actions they can and do take when that happens. The FBI directors statement contrasts with President Barack Obama’s recent assertion that authorities can’t stop someone on the no-fly list from buying a gun. “There are a variety of things that we do when we are notified that someone on our known or suspected terrorist database is attempting to buy a firearm. The FBI is alerted when that is triggered, and then we do investigation,” said Comey. The FBI looks for disqualifiers that can be used to stop the transaction, and if the transaction can’t be stopped, the FBI agents assigned to that subject are alerted to investigate, he said.
