Vox asks if a terror attack “could sweep Donald Trump into the White House.”
Vox highlights a recent town hall exchange between President Barack Obama and a gun shop owner in Elkhart, Indiana, where Obama describes how lax gun laws could lead to a situation like Orlando.
Obama said: “What I have said is precisely what you suggested, which is: Why don’t we treat this like every other thing that we use? I just came from a meeting today in the situation room in which I got people who we know have been on ISIL websites, living here in the United States, U.S. citizens, and we’re allowed to put them on the no-fly list when it comes to airlines, but because of the National Rifle Association, I cannot prohibit those people from buying a gun. This is somebody who is a known ISIL sympathizer. And if he wants to walk into a gun store or a gun show right now and buy as much – as many weapons and ammo as he can, nothing’s prohibiting him from doing that, even though the FBI knows who that person is.”
