As a lock and load liberal, I appreciate the ACLU scrutinizing these lists. I think one provision.needs to be a civilian review board similar in some
ways to what we are adding in police departments. A list that can remove so many basic rights, the right to travel, the right to bear arms,
essentially the right to work in many occupations, has to have more than one or two controllers from government. The temptation to use this power
against the enemies of you and yours would no doubt be too much for some, sadly.
Good work ACLU, from one liberal at least. I know it's an emotional issue for many people and for good reasons. I don't personally like handling guns
but I believe a person has the right to defend themselves, and hunt for food, and be able provide for themselves. And yes, this list could be used
against journalists and others who may report or discuss opposing views to those of any current authority, at any time.
Peace and carry on.
