Democrats Want People on “No Fly List” to Lose Gun Rights Without Due Process

According to an article on NPR, several anti gun politicians and groups want people whose names appear on the “no fly” list and terrorism watch list to be banned from purchasing guns.

This sounds good on the surface, right? Keep weapons out of the hands of terrorists?

However, this becomes problematic when you realize that those lists are secret, no one knows how you get on them, there is no way to get off of them, and you can be added to them without even the slightest bit of evidence of any wrong doing.

Democrats can’t understand why people would be against this measure. Really? You can’t understand why people are upset about secret government tribunals stripping them of their rights with no evidence, no notification and no appeal process?

SC Senator Lindsay Graham opposes the measure.

“I think anyone who’s on the terrorist watch list should not lose their Second Amendment right without the ability to challenge that determination,” says Graham, noting that the late Sen. Ted Kennedy showed up on the no-fly list in 2004 because a suspected terrorist was using the alias Edward Kennedy.

Groups such as the anti gun, Mayors Against Illegal Guns supports the measure.

“This is yet another example of zealots on the far right of the gun movement throwing away the baby with the bath water,” says Mark Glaze, the director of Mayors Against Illegal Guns, which supports tighter gun laws.

Some of the “terrorism” suspects who have been added to these lists over the years, late Senator Ted Kennedy, several children under the age of 12, almost anyone bearing the same name as a known terrorist, and countless ordinary, law abiding citizens.

Letting secret government tribunals strip people of the Constitutionally guaranteed rights without due process is far worse than any semi auto ban, magazine capacity limit, or background check law that could be passed.

  4. Recall that the “No Fly List” is one horribly imprecise shotgun approach that impacts every single individual sharing a name on that travesty of justice’s roster. If “John Smith” is on that list, everybody named John Smith is forbidden to fly. The “authorities” have even precluded little babies a few months old from boarding planes because of their name being listed as a possible terrorist on that list! Taking the Second Amendment rights of all those people sharing names on the list with no due process is just not justice. It is evil, and an effort to disarm ever more people for the slightest excuse!
