    the right of “habeus corpus” wasn’t being argued by republicans when innocent americans were being put on the list in the first place. NO ONE should be put on the damn thing without due process, as i’ve seen argued here. but, because civil liberties often seem to be justifiably suspended, according to conservative view points, when “national security” is trumping it, legislation creating “no fly” lists without due process are borne. argue the basic principle, support it, and the only people on the no fly list who would be affected by this “civil liberty violation” will be those who’ve been “proven” to have “terroristic” tendencies or ties. then argue why they are in the u.s. in the first place.—|———

    The “No Fly” list is notorious for its errors. Are there not enough checks in place regarding gun purchases?

    We should include a no liquid over three oz, and a no wear shoes act for the no-fly list folks. This just another garbage anti-gun law. I also agree with callagan. The no-fly list as a gun ban is suspect as to what criteria would be used to get your name on the “list”.

    Fifth Amendment: No person deprived of rights (2nd Amendment), liberty or property (firearms) without due process. 2401 would suspend those rights if you appear on the NO FLY list, which is not the result of any due process legal action, but is instead put together by some admin person who has no judicial authority. Example due process: You are sent legal notice that you have violated some law that would place you on the “no-fly” list, given a chance in court to confront the accuser, given right to legal defence, given your day in court, have the right to appeal, and then and only then would you be denied the “right” to move freely in society, by aircraft. I think the whole “no fly” is unconstitutional, and could be challenged. Not a lawyer, not a dummy.

    The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.

    Well, McCarthy is at it again, now she is out to close the “LOOPHOLE in the GUNSHOW ACT”, unknown about the Bill’s name or number-just read about it in the Ft.Worth Star Telegram!

    Rep. McCarthy, did you draw inspiration from a certain senator who shared your name?

    This bill is essentially a second amendment blacklist. You can be put on the no fly list without due process; we don’t know the exact criteria — they are secret! — but it is essentially an arbitrary blacklist. She wants to make this blacklist apply to American citizens’ constitutional rights! This is inexcusable. Let this be her last term, as this bill should be the end of her political career.

    Please, read the comments above. If you truly support an idiotic bill like this then you’ve been watching mainstream news way too long.

    How so?
    Post 9/11, the majority of TSA agents working at the Dallas/Ft. Worth international airport, ARE Islamic! What exactly IS your definition of “nut jobs”?!

    Does the illusion of safety appeal to people to such an extent that this is really thought of as a good idea? This kinda garbage is just another brick in the Revolutionary Road. The construction of which can be attributed to those who want to take from my hard work and give to those who aren’t working, to those who think the Second Amendment can be regulated by states (limiting my right to a means to protect myself from anyone wanting to do me harm, government agents or backwoods burglars), those who think I should sacrifice for the benefit of anyone but myself or the people of my choosing. How can they still be getting elected when they are this brain dead?

  • LibertarianLady 09/06/2009 8:07pm

    Hmmm, a secret list with no oversight, no remedy for removing the innocent, potential political motivation for inclusion on the list, potential racial profiling motivations, and many known mistakes being used to prevent people from exercising Constitutionally protected rights with not a speck of due process and no fix for false positives?

    I think not. Vote McCarthy and her three co-sponsors out. Let them know that you won’t stand for your rights being trampled without due process.

  • Constitutionalist1 10/25/2009 12:11pm

    If you let the 2nd Amendment work as it should, there would be no reason for a proposal like this. A criminal is less likely to commit a crime when his victim is potentially carrying a weapon. Criminals are cowards, they prey on the weak and defenseless. This bill is junk.

    Just put Janet Napolitano to work doing what it is she’s SUPPOSE to be doing, which includes the job functions this bill is being proposed for!
    Here you have the “secretary of homeland security” policing the Super Bowl this year over counterfiet merchandice, which was inclusive of SOPA and PIPA, in which were BOTH shot down by congress over the pure stupidity of the proposal of the bills (and yet here we have this douche from NY trying to push through even MORE redundant laws, which Homeland Security’s already suppose to be enforcing).
    It’s hard to enforce something like this anyway, when you have Hillary Clinton running around in full burka with Obama smooching the hands of the enemy, vowing the U.S.‘s support to be submissive to their causes.
    Stop wasting tax-payer/voter dollars already, and start WORKING FOR the people, like you’ve been elected to do! That don’t include brown-nosing the very people who continue to vow to kill us and take our freedoms.. There has to be a point.
