The threats that the terrorist watch list and no-fly list pose to civil liberties — indeed, to the very idea of citizenship — are enormous. Watch lists are designed to circumvent the protections of due process and the separation of powers. They subvert a principle of our free society: Our rights aren’t held on loan until a government official labels us suspect, at which point they are easily stripped away; our rights are ours unless and until a court concludes that we have violated the law.
Pretty much every major liberal MSM out there has now come out against No fly-No Buy (I haven’t checked nor have the stomach to look in Mother Jones.) But some of the top Gun Control groups keep beating on that drum as “This time for sure will fix it.”
Interestingly enough, both Brady Campaign and Violence Policy Center have suddenly gone mute about No fly-No Buy after supporting the initial Congress Sit-In. The others as shown have double down on what possibly could be one huge nail in their coffin: Being so desperate to obtain gun control that they are willing to publicly support the destruction of the Bill of Rights, might end up being a wound they will never be able to close.
