Chuck Schumer Is Also Backing Anti-Due Process Legislation

posted on November 24, 2015

U.S. Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., has jumped on the bandwagon for prohibiting anyone on the FBI Terrorist Watch List from buying guns, regardless of due process. Sunday, he announced that he will lead a renewed push for the Denying Firearms and Explosives to Dangerous Terrorists Act, first proposed in 2007. 

In response, the NRA said it “does not want terrorists or dangerous people to have firearms,” and called it “appalling that anti-gun politicians are exploiting the Paris terrorist attacks to push their gun-control agenda and distract from President Obama’s failed foreign policy.” The Terrorist Watch List, with over 1 million names, is full of individuals with no connection to terrorism—many are simply unlucky in having a name that resembles a suspect. No one is informed when they are added to the list, and there is no clear procedure for being removed from it; these are unacceptable grounds for denying citizens a constitutionally protected right.
