President Barack Obama promised to close Gitmo. Liberals say that the detainees were denied due process. Is that a good excuse to release dangerous terrorists so they can continue to kill innocent Americans? Let’s look at the no-fly list as an example of being denied due process. Sure, the no-fly list helps to prevent some terrorists and other radicals from taking their mission to the sky, but not everyone on the no-fly list is a terrorist. It’s true, some law-abiding Americans have wound up on the no-fly and terrorist watch list. Liberals want to use these lists as a means of taking away our Second Amendment right.
Just how do you get on the no-fly list? There are many ways that your name can wind up on the list. You may be denied permission to travel by air simply because your name is the same as the name of someone on the list. Maybe your ex or someone who doesn’t like you has given your name as a potential terrorist. You’ve posted something on social media that has been red-flagged. It’s even possible that the government made a mistake. Maybe you travel to conduct business or visit relatives in countries that are known to have radical or anti-American views. In 2013 alone, almost half a million names were submitted and out of those, only one percent were rejected.
The Federalist Papers Project reports:
Liberals are hellbent on releasing dangerous terrorists from Guantanamo Bay, claiming “due process” requires it.
But with Americans and their rights? Due process is apparently optional.
Matt Palumbo runs down just how easy it is to get on the no-fly list that liberals want to use to deny you your Second Amendment rights.
Banning those on “no-fly” lists has been touted as a “common sense” gun control measure – but when the government uses the phrase “common sense,” be skeptical.
You’d think this would be like another other gun control debate, with conservatives opposing the measure, and liberal supporting it, but there’s been some strange alliances made over this. The NRA and ACLU both oppose banning those on the no-fly list from owning firearms, albeit for different reasons. The former invokes the Second Amendment, while the latter invokes the Fifth.
