(CNSNews.com) Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said Thursday that a gun is an instrument of terrorism and that sensible gun control consistent with the 2nd Amendment is a matter of homeland security.
I believe that sensible gun control consistent with the 2nd Amendment and consistent with a responsible gun owners right to own a gun is a matter of homeland security, Johnson told the Senate Judiciary Committee in response to a question from Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) on whether it was a significant security vulnerability that terrorists can get powerful firearms and whether this is being exploited by those who would harm us.

In fact, Im told that at least one al Qaeda member has pointed to the U.S. gun show loophole to encourage their sympathizers to acquire used firearms. From your experience, is it pretty clear that terrorists in other parts of the world are aware of our weak gun laws? Leahy asked.
Yes, that magic, non-existent "loophole" they keep referring to in an effort to further restrict lawful gun owners.
The 'rats are going all out to take away more freedoms in the last 204 days of the criminal 0bama regime.
We need common sense Jihad Control.
sensible gun control consistent with the 2nd Amendment
Does not rhyme with “shall not be infringed.”
The word ‘sensible’ coming out of the mouth of a politician is a sure sign that they are planning to take something away from you
common sense pressure cooker control jeh. moron.
At the very moment you throw open the border to Mexicans and moslems, you think I’m gonna give up my guns? FU.
Keeping murderers out of the country is a matter of homeland security.
We need common sense traitor control.
If Jeh Johnson had a Brain he’d be dangerous
Import muslims and take away rights from American citizens when the muslims follow thier koran and kill infidels...
Time for Americans to assert some sensible control over Jeh Johnson and the government which no longer represents the will of the people.
“sensible gun control” of course meaning anything your Government Betters decide it meas.
This is, quite simply, an end run around the Second Amendment.
I am so sick of Democrat lies
Sensible gun control is using both hands and keeping the booger hook off the bang switch until ready to fire.
Get this guy OUT of our government ASAP!
There is no such thing as “gun control consistent with the Second Amendment”
LYING Anti-American BASTURD!
(repatriate all of the enemy Moslems back to their “own” countries.....that is: the 56 nations they took over exactly the way Obama is doing with them against the USA.... mass-scale infiltration followed by mass-scale terrorist murder attacks within the invaded country’s cities and towns........leading to their eventual take-over and subjugation (or murder if we don’t obey) of the Infidel (you and me)
SEND THEM BACK NOW, while we still can...( O included!)
Sensible gun control is a matter of getting rid of Washington, DC TYRANNY.
And one of those “used” weapons, from Fast & Furious, was found in Paris
Do not allow your attention to be drawn to the method and away from the ideology that prompted the act.
Blaming guns for jihad attacks rather than blaming islam makes as much sense as blaming Zyklon-B for the Holocaust rather than blaming Nazi ideology.
Why is Jeh Johnson redirecting attention from the motivation of the killer? Why is Jeh Johnson providing cover for the terrorist?
