WASHINGTON, D.C.-The push for stricter gun laws has drawn controversy from both sides of the barrel.

We know those open carry guys and gals have something to say about it, but maybe we've been taking aim at the wrong group of people.

According to a report from the Government Accountability Office, at least 2,043 known and suspected terrorists have legally purchased firearms in the United States since 2004.

While the right to bear arms applies to all except for felons, fugitives, drug addicts, and domestic abusers, terrorists on government watch lists can legally buy guns.

Don't freak out!

A bipartisan bill has been drawn up called 'Denying Firearms and Explosives to Dangerous Terrorists Act of 2015.'

Subtle, we know.

The bill would do just that, keep fire power out of the hands of terrorists, legally at least.

In the wake of terrorist attacks in France, we can all agree that keeping guns away from terror groups is a good thing.
