No Fly? No Shoot Neither!

This Administration is (in)famous for the promotion of firearms sales, through it’s attempts to strip rights from the law-abiding.  (Better than Clinton through HIS attempts!)

And that’s saying something.

One of the more recent efforts is to deny The Right To Keep And Bear Arms from those relegated to the No-Fly List.

The brilliant, beautiful (and snarky) Tamara says it better:

Who watches the watch list?

Before September 11, 2001, the no-fly list, which names people who are banned from boarding flights in or out of the U.S., contained 16 people. A leak revealed that that number had grown to 47,000 as of 2013. Most of those names were added after President Obama took office. The broader terrorist watch list maintained by the Terrorist Screening Center has an even more expansive scope; the estimated number of people on the list has ranged from 700,000 to more than 1.5 million, figures which include Americans and foreigners.

tam35182So, what other constitutional rights do we think it would be cool to strip from people extrajudicially?

What can get you put on a terr’rist watch list? Commenting too frequently at WRSA? Linking to Mountain Guerilla?

ETA: To put a finer point on it…

A lot of folks who are screaming to throw all Muslims on to terror watch lists are the same folks who were cheerleading for that assclown Amon Bundy and his band of dipshits. Little do they realize expanding secret lists of “enemies of the state” will be their undoing….” -A Facebook Commenter

AMEN, Sistuh!

  1. A friend of mine has a different take on it: “We’re all on their lists already. So let’s get on ALL the lists – ALL of us. Make it so cumbersome that it can’t be managed. Overload it, and watch it break down. Make it useless to the bureaucrats who are paid too much to watch it.”

    • This is a good idea! (I’ve promoted similar thinking here, as well. Download TOR, as well!)
      The only problem is it presupposes laws and rules in place by which such things are enforced.
      I predict an executive edict – or more than one – taking our rights away wholesale – think 4th Amendment – air travel(!)
      We will be the law-abiding, taking such matters to the courts. And the executive will simply ignore any rulings!

  2. It’s already unmanageable… And for reference, check what Jimmy Carter did in 1979, banning Iranians and Muslims from the US, and deporting over 15000 ‘students’…

  3. So someone is too dangerous to be let on a plane after being metal detected, had their bags sniffed by dogs and x-rayed. Maybe they are weird, “extremist” or scary enough to land them on a Terrorist Watch List.

    But the politicos are just fine with them LIVING NEXT DOOR to you and your kids?
    Whiskey Tango Foxtrot? They’re either a danger or not – make up your mind Washington!

  4. It’s my understanding that Teddy Kennedy ended up on the no fly list. Although he really belonged on a no drive list, it demonstrates the worthlessness of these lists.
