Sen. Chris Murphy also confirmed to be against the 5th Amendment.
“The Feinstein proposal has due process in it, it has the means to aggrieve your inclusion on that list.”
And what are those? Well, nobody knows because they are not to be defined by Congress but by the Attorney General at a future date…if ever.
Notwithstanding any other provision of law, such
remedial procedures and judicial review shall be subject to
procedures that may be developed by the Attorney General to
prevent the unauthorized disclosure of information.
And you can rest assured the AGwill get the procedure done fast, openly and will NEVER be abused. <coughbullshitcough>
One more thing I need to expand on. Again from the Feinstein bill:
the Attorney General may deny the
transfer of a firearm if the Attorney General determines,
based on the totality of the circumstances, that the
transferee represents a threat to public safety based on a
reasonable suspicion that the transferee is engaged, or has
been engaged, in conduct constituting, in preparation for, in
aid of, or related to terrorism, or providing material
support or resources therefor.
According to Cornell’s Legal Information Institute:
“Reasonable suspicion is a standard used in criminal procedure. It is looser than probable cause. Reasonable suspicion is sufficient to justify brief stops and detentions, but not enough to justify a full search. When determining reasonable suspicion, courts consider the events leading up to the brief stop and a decide whether these facts, viewed from the standpoint of an objectively reasonable police officer, amount to reasonable suspicion.
Courts look at the totality of the circumstances of each case to see whether the officer has a particularized and objective basis for suspecting legal wrongdoing.”
The important part in my IANAL diploma is Not Enough to Justify a Full Search. Basically, it cannot violate the Fourth Amendment, you know? The one that goes:
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
So they need to ignore the Fourth to kill the Fifth and finally eliminate the Second. That is about 1/3 of the Bill of Rights they are aiming to destroy.
Do you feel warm-fuzzy yet?
