Here is a new gun grab.
This time naming "SUSPECTED" terrorists as people the Attorney General can bar from purchasing firearms,without clearly defining the legality of the term and giving the choice to a politically manipulatable office.
Don't these morons EVER get it?

So anyone that wants to point out that it is not a gun grab is now an idiot?

Do you want a civil discussion or just berate those that don't agree?

Also, this is not just Feinstine's bill.

The Denying Firearms and Explosives to Dangerous Terrorists Act was introduced this week by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) and Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.).

What part of "innocent until proven guilty" do these people not understand? That is supposed to be the guiding principle of our judicial system.

It's the "(or appropriately suspected)" clause that is alarming.

Read the Bill to see what's in it !!!

Never let any crisis go to waste.

Since the government is slowly expanding its definition of 'domestic terrorists', this most certainly can be seen as a potential gun grab.

Before buying a gun from a licensed dealer, the dealers must first contact the FBI for a criminal background check of the buyer on the National Instant Criminal Background System (NICS). Why would a suspected terrorist not be on the computer?

Well this is about blocking sales it seems.
Sure we can go into what ifs and slippery slope but in the context of article they are not grabbing anything.

Well after a quick search my suggestion is that this isn't even new.

I see the pro's and con's of this but do find it frightening that some one on a FBI watchlist would not prevent them from obtaining a firearm.

Aren't all kinds of people on the watch list? How soon before a person's party view or lack there of lands them on the list.

Except this hyperbole is just not true...
But sounds great, makes all those groups sound so persecuted, must be hard.

And road, I see that point, and ya sounds scary but that isn't what this is about.
Also I am not so sure that tons of people are on those list's.

Here is the one from 2009, same song and track and it went no where.


I must ask those for those against a regulation like this.
Do you really have no issues with some one that is on the FBI watch list getting a fire arm?
Or is it only bad if they are not christian, former military or conservative

I have issues with the legal tricks that get garbage passed the voters rights....like bills NO ONE has read for instance.
Or Ill defind terms being available for wide open legal determination.

It is almost as if the pols are encouraging people to purchase and own firearms that are not registered by the state.

Not that I especially have any issue with that.

I have no problem with someone on a "watch list" buying a weapon. He's gonna have to be screened by the NCIS computer. If the FBI doesn't have enough on him to want to come arrest him or talk to him, then he should be allowed to purchase a weapon. If the FBI were to take away your civil rights because they were "suspicious" of you, but had no evidence sufficient to cause an arrest warrant, or even an interview---you wouldn't like that very much.
