Sen. Elizabeth Warren completely ignored facts in one of her recent tweets.
In the tweet, Warren accused Republicans of selling weapons to members of the Islamic State group because they refused to pass gun control legislation.
“The @SenateGOP have decided to sell weapons to ISIS,” she tweeted in support of her equally uninformed Democrat peer, Sen. Chris Murphy of Connecticut.
What she meant in her uninformed statement was that allowing people on lists of suspected terrorists was essentially equipping them. One of the bills that failed in the Senate earlier in the week would have denied firearms to people on federal terror watch lists like the “no fly” list.
The problem is hat anyone can be put on the watch list for any reason without due process of law.
People, which includes several senators, realized this and that’s why the bill didn’t pass.
Now, Warren is angry, but the internet shot right back and educated her on the real issue at hand.
.@SenWarren A registered Democrat literally decided to join ISIS and kill 49 people.

@BenSasse That "probably" is so charitable it should get you a tax deduction.

To deprive American citizens of their constitutional rights in the name of security is exactly what the terrorists want. It is the equivalent of terrorism winning – in the face of terrorist attacks, people turn on each other and act out of fear and not out of principle.
If only people like Warren understood that?
