boise: Mr. Bennett, You have stated “And now that we know with absolute certainty that terrorists are buying guns at gun shows, it's more important than ever that we pass this.” Could you expand on this revelation? Have you ever been to a gun show? Ever try to buy a firearm at a gun show?
Matthew Bennett: On Sept. 10, a known member of the terrorist group Hezbollah named Ali Boumelhem was [b][u]convicted in federal court in Detroit on a variety of weapons charges.[/b][/u] Boumelhem had been followed to several MI gun shows by the FBI where he had purchased guns that he was shipping illegally to his comrades in Lebanon. We also know of IRA terrorists buying guns at gun shows in Florida and a new case that may involve terrorists (though we don't know that one for sure) is going on right now in Texas. And yes, I've been to gun shows. No, I haven't bought any guns at gun shows but I've seen unlicensed sellers selling guns without background checks on many occassions.
