Description

The Center for Investigative Reporting reveals "how terrorists can manipulate lax US gun laws in order to buy guns in the United States both for use within this country and for export to conflicts overseas." The center "uncovered numerous cases of groups on the US terrorist watch list -- such as the FARC and ELN guerilla movements in Colombia, the IRA of Ireland and the Hezbollah of Lebanon -- buying guns in the United States and illegally shipping them to their home countries to fuel the conflicts there." The story was released November 14 and published December 2 in The Nation.
