DOJ Overrules FBI: “No-Fly” List Can and Should Be Used to Stop People from Buying a Gun


Today AG Loretta Lynch overruled FBI Director James Comey, stating that people on the no-fly list can and should be barred from being able to legally purchase a gun in this country.

Via WA Times:

Attorney General Loretta Lynch overruled FBI Director James B. Comey on Thursday, saying the Obama administration does support a ban on firearms sales to those on terrorist watch lists.

Mr. Comey last year had told Congress that the ban could end up alerting suspected terrorists that they are being investigated, and that could “blow” the cases his agents are trying to build.

But his superiors at the Justice Department rejected that, issuing a statement Thursday saying they want to see Congress approve the “no-fly, no-buy” plan Democrats are pursuing.

Of course the DOJ wants to see Congress approve some totally unconstitutional gun control legislation… this is the same agency involved in the Fast and Furious attack on the Second Amendment.

As previously reported, the “no-fly” list, which currently has approximately 700,000 names on it, is kept secret from the public. How people get on it in the first place is secret. There is no public judicial process. Stories abound of people mistakenly being put on the list. Like eight-year-olds. And babies.

Many have claimed the list is used for intimidation tactics and to target people who are critical of the government or opponents of government political agendas… like most everyone reading this article.

The Intercept published a 166-page document outlining the government’s guidelines which are vague to say the least (via HuffPo, citing the 7 vague ways you could end up on the no-fly list):

Using these criteria, government officials have secretly characterized an unknown number of individuals as threats or potential threats to national security. In 2013 alone, 468,749 watch-list nominations were submitted to the National Counterterrorism Center. It rejected only 1 percent of the recommendations.

Critics say the system is bloated and imprecise, needlessly sweeping up thousands of people while simultaneously failing to catch legitimate threats, like Boston Marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev.

While some individuals are surely placed on these watch lists for valid reasons, the murky language of the guidelines suggests that innocent people can get caught up in this web, too…

These guidelines are all based on “reasonable suspicion” but they don’t say what that means exactly, leaving the door wide open to label people as potential terrorists pre-crime style without hard proof of any wrongdoing.

So what’s going to happen when the same vague, imprecise, murky criteria are used to summarily strip American citizens of their Second Amendment rights to purchase a gun without any judicial process?

That list just keeps getting bigger ever year…

Meanwhile the fact can’t be missed that suspected shooter Omar Mateen was a security contractor for Homeland Security, so even if this legislation had been enacted before the Orlando shooting, Mateen’s name would not have been on it.
