"...proposed legislation in both houses of Congress that would empower the Attorney General (radically anti-gun Attorney General Eric Holder, at the moment) to unilaterally designate a prospective gun buyer as a "suspected terrorist," without a conviction (or even a trial), without an indictment (or even a hearing), without an arrest (or even a formal accusation)."

  • Our children won't have any freedoms left. Just in the past twenty years, they have slipped away. This goes against innocent until proven guilty. As our rights disappear, we won't get them back. We don't even have double jeopardy anymore, as any person now charged of a crime, is charged with several. Throw enough stuff on the wall and some of it will stick. The founding fathers set up our legal system with the supposition that it is better to let 100 guilty people go free then it is to put 1 innocent person in jail. The tide has turned. Lets hope the NRA can stop it. The problem is now presidents use Executive orders (toappoint czars) which is not under the control of Congress. Basically the president can do what he likes if he issues an executive order. Our country truly is in trouble.

  • Of course it's a bad idea. Even if they use the "no-fly" list the airlines use. There are so many people on that list that have trouble flying because of it... Senators, babies, average Joe-blows... anyone with the wrong "name". A name is a name - tons of people share the same name but it doesn't make them the same person. And the bad guys certainly don't use their own name all the time - the fake names they use just add to the problems for the rest of us. Innocent until proven guilty. Any other way is wrong.

  • Wow, I can't fathom how much tax-payer money would go just into keeping up that list. Tons of people own and carry. I think many people would be surprised by how common it is.

  • The democrats have had an anti gun agenda for quite some time. That is likely what cost Al Gore the election in 2000. They have just put it on the back burner so people are not aware of it. Then they can try to slip it in quietly.
