Bill Weld Either Doesn’t Understand the Constitution or He Directly Defies It

Either way he is unfit to lead.

In a recent interview with Revolt.TV Libertarian Vice Presidential candidate Bill Weld stated:  “You shouldn’t have anybody who is on the terrorist watch list buy any gun at all.”  The obvious Constitutional problem with this statement is the lack of due process involved with arbitrarily throwing someone on such a list.

According to the ACLU the “Terror Watch List” currently consists of over 1,000,000+ names.  The population of the city of Baltimore as of 2015 was only 622,000 people.

Most libertarians are of the opinion that gun control laws tend to never work anyways due to the fact that criminals have no problem disobeying laws— after all that is indeed why they are criminals… Thus making gun control a moot point.  Most Republicans even scoff at the idea of denying American citizens their 2nd Amendment right without due process.

What the fuck is Bill Weld thinking?  What does he stand for?  Who is he looking to impress? At what point does the Gary Johnson campaign merely just become the lesser of 3 evils?
