Justice Department Endorses Democrats’ Plan on Gun Control for Terrorism Suspects

The Justice Department is backing the Democrats on a gun-control measure that would ban suspected terrorists from buying guns.

The gun-control amendment was introduced by Sen. Dianne Feintein, D-Calif.

The measure would allow the attorney general to ban gun sales to suspected terrorists if there’s “reasonable belief that the weapons would be used in connection with terrorism.”

“The amendment gives the Justice Department an important additional tool to prevent the sale of guns to suspected terrorists by licensed firearms dealers while ensuring protection of the department’s operational and investigative sensitivities,” Justice Department spokeswoman Dena Iverson said in a statement posted to the DOJ’s website. “We also continue to support universal background checks as a necessary tool to prevent suspected terrorists from lawfully obtaining firearms.”

Republicans defeated a similar proposal in December.
