Barry once again half-assedly addressed the nation last night. He stated that “Congress should act to make sure that no one on a “No-Fly List” is able to buy a gun. What could possibly be the argument for allowing a terrorist suspect to buy a semi-automatic weapon? This is a matter of national security”
Well here is the argument, Mr. President… Perhaps you’ve heard of it… It’s called Due Process!
The “No-Fly List” is Constitutionally unfit to exist in the first place, Mr. “Constitutional Scholar”. You know, “the right to free travel“?!
Innocent until proven guilty is supposed be the idea that our entire judicial system is based on. We already have a bizillion laws on the books to charge actual criminals with. A treasure trove of laws, Mr. President! Surely everybody is guilty of breaking at least one… If you can’t “legitimately” charge somebody with an actual factual crime, why on earth should you be able to arbitrarily put somebody on list depriving them of their Constitutional Rights?
If the list is unfit to exist in the first place… Why expand upon it?
Mr. President, the United States Constitution was written by the founders to protect the people of this country from tyrants such as you. Try reading it sometime.
