Press release: As Bush Administration Finally Agrees To Restrict Terrorists Access To Guns, Lautenberg Introduces Bill To Close ‘Terror Gap’: ” Last night, U.S. Sen. Frank R. Lautenberg (D-NJ) introduced legislation to prohibit terrorist suspects from purchasing firearms, mirroring an Administration plan released yesterday. The bill seeks to close the “terror gap” in federal gun law by giving the Attorney General the power to block gun sales to terror suspects. Under current federal gun law, there is no provision to deny suspected terrorists from purchasing a firearm.”
