Florida Sen. Marco Rubio has introduced a bill that would strip individuals who are merely suspected — not convicted — of domestic terrorism of their Second Amendment rights. Subjects of a terrorism investigation would be reported to the FBI’s NICS background check system, allowing delays of gun purchases of up to 10 days and a court could stop the sale entirely.

The Terror Intelligence Improvement Act would:

    • Consolidate all federal terrorism investigation intelligence under the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), strengthening the FBI’s capabilities and making sure dangerous individuals do not fall through the cracks.
    • Require the FBI Director and the Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF) be immediately notified of any request to transfer a firearm to an individual who was the subject of a federal terrorism investigation within the last 10 years.
    • When an individual who was the subject of a federal terrorism investigation within the last 10 years tries to obtain a firearm, allow the U.S. Attorney General to delay the purchase or transfer for up to ten business days and file an emergency petition in court to prevent the transfer. If the court finds probable cause that the individual is or has been engaged in terrorism, the Attorney General may arrest the individual.
    • Protect the due process rights of law-abiding Americans by ensuring emergency petitions filed by the Attorney General are only granted if the transferee receives notice of the hearing and has the opportunity to participate with legal counsel. If the court denies the Attorney General’s petition, the federal government is responsible for all reasonable costs and attorneys’ fees.
    • Require the Inspector General of the Intelligence Community (IC IG) to conduct an audit of the federal government’s terrorism screening and watch list procedures, and identify any problems in the processes of adding or removing individuals from the system. Based on the audit, the IC IG must then submit a report to the Senate and House Intelligence Committees with recommendations for improving the system.

  1. Remember, the Republicans were grooming this guy for the White House.

    2022 is probably our last opportunity to clean house. If you’re not involved at the local level, cultivating a slate of blood thirsty savages, you need to be. Nobody is going to do this for us. John Wayne, Q, or Trump isn’t going to ride over the hill and save us. We need to put in the work.

  2. Now he has bigger problems, just last night Biden pondering a travel ban to and from Florida, Worried about the new strain of flu. De santis had press conference stating that this is not about science but pure political B.S he is correct. I live in Florida born and raised and guess who else lives in FL? DJT the man himself.
    Since Florida overwhelmingly voted for trump I guess biden thinks he needs to punish those ” White Racist Domestic Terrorist” that reside here.
    Good Luck with that.

  3. Never mind rubio calling out deranged democRat Gun Control Zealots for selling their terrorist agenda to pathetic gullible history illiterate Americans. A terrorist agenda that is Rooted in Racism and Genocide. A terrorist agenda that dropped out of the behinds of racists and nazis.

    And Where was marco when cities and businesses were burning? NOWHERE.
    I really think these RINOs are so f-n jealous of POTUS DJT. They could not compete whether it be business, women, etc. From mitch mcconnell to romney to rubio it has never been about the citizenry…it’s been all about them and their stinking country club. Despicable.

    PS Change the damned font.

  4. So, this begs the question, how easy is it to snare someone in a “terrorism investigation?” Say something edgy on social media? Buy something from someone who was investigated for “terrorism?” Vote for the wrong candidate?

    This is blatantly un-Constitutional, but unfortunately I no longer have faith in the courts.

    • Everybody that comments on this website is probably on some kind of watch list now, no matter what the subject is about, firearms, politics, etc. hit the “hot buttons” of computer algorithms!

      • Uh huh
        No one thinks it strange that one article talked about “transmissions” and two days later the format changed. Also one of my fake emails wont work here anymore.

  5. Due process left years ago on domestic cases. It has gone off the rail of late where your fired before investigating an accusation. A large majority of Americans no longer believe in it.

  6. This a-hole was on Tucker splaining what a hero he was. Tucker needs to be informed what a douch this boy is!!! Just another holier than thou RINO…

  7. An investigation can be as little as review of ones social media posts or inquiry into credit card purchase of Oath Keepers membership

    Its pure Stalin brought to you by Floridias Communist hatchetman, little Marco. He has always been Communist. Even though his parents escaped Cubas Communist regime little Marco saw Communism as a way to power.

  8. This is about as surprising and The Lincoln Project being full of weirdos and embezzlers.

    It’s a reintroduction. He put this bill up before, after the Pulse Nightclub shooting.

  9. Pretty sure that unless you’re burning down predominately minority neighborhoods in the name of justice you’re a terrorist.

  10. Under The Patriot Act you can be held, no habeus corpus, i.e. Night and Fog, the Nazis used:

    Nacht und Nebel (German: [ˈnaxt ʔʊnt ˈneːbl̩]), meaning Night and Fog, was a directive issued by Adolf Hitler on 7 December 1941 targeting political activists and resistance “helpers” in World War II, who were to be imprisoned, killed, or made to disappear, while the family and the population remained uncertain as to the fate or whereabouts of the Nazi state’s alleged offender.
    Same thing, incremental steps, no trial for you.

    Who doesn’t trust the FBI?

    As a country we are no better than Russia, China, et al. Our leaders just have to flesh it out a little more.

    If you believe the NSA and or FBI are not monitoring this site, call me for that beachfront property in North Dakota that I’ll sell you for a song.

    • “directive issued by Adolf Hitler…Same thing…”

      Whoa there buddy! Did you just compare Republicans to persecuted Jews in the Holocaust!?! That’s Anti-Semitic! Notify the Commission for Unity and grab the pitchforks guys! We’ve got another one!

  11. Interesting now that Trump is gone. Some Republicans now feel comfortable about introducing gin control legislation. I already knew Rubio was a RINO. He supported gun bans in city parks in his early political career.

    But now that the terrible Orange Man is gone. He can now “let his Hair down”.

  12. Terrorists? He means like how the left keeps using the title for people who are members of the NRA?

    Pass, I’m glad this tool didn’t make it out of the primaries. Hogg did that whole $1.05 thing to him and he still didn’t get the message that there will never be enough for the left until they can put you in a camp at will.

  13. Step 1: ban anyone accused of ‘terrorism’ from owning guns.
    Step 2: further expand the term ‘terrorism’ to include pretty much anything.
    Step 3: pack the lower courts do no challege ever makes it to SCOTUS.

    Stolen Elections have consequences.

  14. An example of “extremist terrorist ideology” may help. Following is a copy and paste excerpt of the free and radical kind of thinking that these people fear most:
    – – –
    We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. That, to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That, whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles, and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness.

    Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and, accordingly, all experience has shown, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

    But, when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object, evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security.
    – – –
    Uppity free people who actually believe in the grand and noble ideas of individual liberty, ideas that constituted the great American dream that this country was founded upon, are now considered dangerous by those who seek to trample the U.S. Constitution into the ground. The 1st and 2nd Amendments are the ALARM BELLS by which We The People are made aware that something is terribly wrong when they are attacked, because as our founders well knew, they would be the first to be targeted by enemies both foreign and domestic.

    Those Constitutional Amendment ALARMS are sounding very loudly right now as our enemies openly seek to destroy them. They will of course equate “militia” with “terrorist” for the same reasons that the British did when they were marching on Lexington and Concord to seize all the firearms and disarm the people. Same sh*t, different day.

  15. Wrote this idiot about this a couple of days ago, told him this is even worse than the Socialist Democrats when they were proposing that idiotic “no fly, no buy” expansion to the NICS list, in addition to being flatly unconstitutional.

  16. Guilty ,,”Due process later.”
    Now who was it that said that?, oh yeah the guy that is now screaming for due process .
    Talk about karma.

  17. Another tyrannical piece of s***! A RINO Totalitarian just as bad as his Demo-Authoritarian counterparts…These FU*****@$$WHOLES are out to destroy our Republic! Their going after the Constitutional Bill of Rights and Label any U.S. citizen that stands up to these self-entitled potentates as “Enemies of the State!” Rebels and Insurrectionists if you plan to take up ARMS against ‘HEAVILY ARMED, .Gov military despots! If I remember correctly, there still 11k National Guard still stationed at the Capitol…I mean the Citadel Fortress…Things are looking very , very In-American indeed…And I’m an independent and I’ve become very alarmed at what I’ve seen….

  18. When somebody gives a Senator $800k up front to write a book expected to sell 50 copies, what are they really paying him for?

  19. You guys got it all wrong. Rubio is a Trump ass kissing Trumplican. Trump ruined the Republican party. Thanks goodness for Joe Biden who is doing something about the Covid 19. Trump and DeSanctis never believed it was real. They need a good case without having the vaccine. I doubt that Trump had Covid.

  20. Rubio is a dull tool and sneaky snake….marching us toward communism. Aren’t we all domestic terrorists if we supported President Trump? Never mind the anteefa-blm who are real domestic terrorists, they can burn and loot and shoot to their heart’s desire thanks to demoncratz.

  21. ONLY if CONVICTED of belonging to a terrorist groups such as BLM and ANTIFA! Rubio is a RINO and must go in the next election. Let us run a real Conservative against him in the next election like John Rutherford for example!

  22. You CANNOT and SHOULD NOT be able to take away anyones’ 2nd Amendment just because you THINK he is a Domestic Terrorist. You MUST prove it in court first!
