NRA Welcomes Trump Discussion On Terror Watch List

posted on June 16, 2016

After Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump announced on Wednesday that he planned to visit with NRA leaders concerning the Terror Watch List, NRA-ILA Executive Director Chris W. Cox welcomed the meeting.

“We are happy to meet with Donald Trump,” Cox said. “The NRA’s position on this issue has not changed. The NRA believes that terrorists should not be allowed to purchase or possess firearms, period. Anyone on a terror watchlist who tries to buy a gun should be thoroughly investigated by the FBI and the sale delayed while the investigation is ongoing. If an investigation uncovers evidence of terrorist activity or involvement, the government should be allowed to immediately go to court, block the sale and arrest the terrorist.”  

Cox said, however, that law-abiding Americans must retain due process of the law. “At the same time, due process protections should be put in place that allow law-abiding Americans who are wrongly put on a watchlist to be removed,” he said. “That has been the position of Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, and a majority of the U.S. Senate. Sadly, President Obama and his allies would prefer to play politics with this issue.”
