Suspected Terrorists and Guns – “In February 2004, the Department of Justice began checking prospective gun buyers against what the FBI calls the Known or Suspected Terrorist File — which includes the Terrorist Screening Database, commonly referred to as the FBI’s terrorist watch list, as explained in a May 2013 report by the nonpartisan Congressional Research Service.

It’s all due process,’ Manchin said on MSNBC’s ‘Morning Joe.’ ‘So we can all say we want the same thing, but how do we get there?’”
Vox writer calls for Obama to ‘unilaterally ban all Americans from purchasing guns’ – “Vox Media writer Dylan Matthews drew social media ire on Thursday when he called for President Obama to ‘unilaterally’ deny Americans their constitutionally protected rights. ‘This is not Dems‘ sales pitch but I’m totally down with letting the prez unilaterally ban people (hopefully everyone!) from buying guns,’ Mr. Matthews tweeted.” Somehow we doubt Matthews would be totally down with the next prez, whoever it is, unilaterally banning his access to the First Amendment..
