Politicians Push Terrorist Watch List Gun Ban On State Level

posted on December 16, 2015

With more people weighing in on why the proposal to ban guns to individuals on the FBI’s Terrorist Watch List is a terrible idea, anti-gun politicians are thinking smaller. With Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy having announced an executive order to institute such a ban in his state—that is, if he can get the FBI to send the list his way—others are beginning to follow his lead. 

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and U.S. Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., have called for New York to close what they disingenuously call the “Terror Gap” by prohibiting anyone on an FBI list to buy guns. Illinois Rep. Gregory Harris has introduced a measure to take away gun licenses from people who appear on the Terrorist Watch List, and Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker has expressed interest in a similar project. The fact that this gun-control campaign has lost steam on the federal level obviously does not mean that we can afford to drop our vigilance.
