You may recall that Connecticut Governor Malloy recently decided to sign an executive order to add citizens on the “No-Fly List” to the state’s list of prohibited firearms purchasers. As we’ve mentioned here many times, the feds’ “No-Fly List” is a secret government enemies list that denies Americans their Constitutionally protected right to due process. Anyone who supports removing gun rights from people on the List might as well revoke their Eight Amendment protections against cruel and unusual punishment. And by that we mean proto-fascists like Illinois Representative Greg Harris who’s added this little ditty to HB4359 amending the Land of Lincoln’s Firearm Owners Identification Card Act . . .
Provides that the Department of State Police has authority to deny an application for or to revoke and seize a Firearm Owner’s Identification Card (FOID card) previously issued under the Act if the Department finds that the applicant or the person to whom the card was issued is or was at the time of issuance a person named on the consolidated Terrorist Watchlist maintained by the Terrorist Screening Center administered by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
Note: Rep. Harris goes one better/worse than Malloy. Harris wants to expand the gun purchase possession ban to anyone on the Terrorist Watchlist (of which the “No-Fly List” is a subset). Although secret, the Terrorist Watchlist is said to contain the names of over a million Americans, none of whom have been charged or convicted on any terrorist-related offense.
They’re coming out from under the rocks folks. Just sayin’….
