Harry Reid and other Senate Democrats have vowed to block a bill that passed the House with a veto-proof majority that would strengthen the screening process for refugees entering the U.S.
Reid is instead calling on Republicans and the NRA to see to it they can’t be armed after they’re already in the country:
Dear Republicans, let's close the NRA loophole that lets terror suspects buy Paris-style assault rifles in America. https://t.co/GNhPde3D6Z

Dems fighting back. Reid: "Republicans care more about kowtowing to the NRA than preventing terrorists from legally buying assault rifles"

Here’s a response full of so much common sense that it probably never even occurred to Reid:
@SenatorReid Dear Mr. Reid, here's a better idea. Let's not let terror suspects into America in the first place!

That’s the real “loophole,” Sen. Reid! But as we’ve learned time and time again, Harry’s impervious to logic.
Dear Democrats, let's stop selling out fellow countrymen to lend aid and comfort to invading foreign nationals. @SenatorReid

@SenatorReid Oh, so its okay to let terror suspects in the country, we got to stop them from buying guns once we let them in. Got it.

That'll totally fucking work. Not like France has some of the strictest gun laws on the planet or anything. https://t.co/JajwlrqCsY

@SenatorReid After careful consideration, the nation has come 2 the
