CT governor, Dannel Malloy, is signing an executive order that bars anyone on the federal "no-fly" list from purchasing firearms in the state. Good or bad move?
I am for intelligent gun control, but this is a "secret" list, with no way to get off it. Getting put on it is a rather random process. This goes against the concept of being able to face your accuser.
Given that owning a firearm is a right not dependent on whether or not you are "allowed" to fly, and how often the empty melons adding names to the list seem to screw it up, I think the governor is greatly overstepping his authority, and will hopefully be sued into obscurity post haste.
I'd be looking for new job in a different state that respects Bill of Rights/Constitution asap - whether I was on that list or not. The no fly list *isn't* a "terrorist watch list," it is a *suspect* list that *anyone* can find themselves on for unknown "reasons," is all but impossible to get off, & one usually finds they are *on* the list when they try to fly somewhere cuz there *is* no due process = no one is *required* to tell you *why* you are on the list or present *any* documentation you deserve to be on the list!
Don't be surprised when they just randomly put everyone on the no fly list
Bery bad. Political control.
Bery? Lol. Very.
