Senator Harry Reid (D-Espicable) has said he’ll block a bill that passed the House yesterday with a veto-proof majority that would intensify screenings on refugees entering the United States.

Instead of tightening down those “loopholes,” Reid would rather set things up so the Dems can blame the GOP and NRA for any Paris-style attacks in the U.S.:

Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) slammed Republicans Friday, suggesting they are prioritizing their support for the National Rifle Association (NRA) at the expense of national security.

“Republicans care more about kowtowing to the NRA than preventing terrorists from legally buying assault rifles and explosives like the ones used in the Paris attacks here in America,” Reid said in a statement. “Shockingly, Republicans continue to preserve a loophole that allows FBI terror suspects to buy guns and explosives legally, without background checks.”

Reid’s remarks come as Democrats are doubling down on legislation from Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) that would close a so-called “terrorist loophole” by blocking people on the terrorist watch list from buying firearms.

Gee Harry, how did the jihadis in France get their weapons when they have all the gun control laws your party dreams about and no NRA?

Hard to believe Reid didn’t also throw the Koch brothers in the mix of terrorist-enabling Republicans, but he’ll probably get to that soon enough.

Update:

I don’t recall Reid freaking out when a guy on the terror watch list in Minnesota was licensed to drive semi-trucks. Then again, he’s not a member of the NRA.
