100 Words -- Enemies Foreign and Domestic

Certain politicians won’t look you in the eye when confronted with the sacrifice of our children at the altar of the Second Amendment, but they get all steely-eyed when it comes to terrorists. They talk tough about Syrian refugees but turn a blind eye to the 300,000 domestic deaths from firearms versus the 300 Americans killed by terrorists. They go along when the NRA lobbies against legislation aimed at preventing suspected terrorists from purchasing firearms and explosives. From 2004 to 2014, 2,233 people on the FBI’s terrorist watchlist applied to buy firearms; only 190 were rejected. Anyone worried about that?
