Lets take a short look at what's wrong with that notion.
- The list is fraught with errors. There are many names on the list that don't belong. More on this later....
- The list is a secret list, and you don't know you're on it until you try to fly.
- There is no way to get your name off.
- The Constitutionally protected right of keeping and bearing arms would be removed by a nameless, faceless bureaucrat, without due process.
This legislation, if passed, would increase the number of prohibited persons, which is one of the end games of the gun grabbers.
Even the Los Angeles Times agrees this is bad legislation.
Returning to the names that don't belong. the late Teddy Kennedy (D) of
Chappaquiddick Massachusetts, was on the list.

Closer to home, I learned Monday at a Farragut Gun Club meeting, that Dr. Patrick Hackett, DVM, of Pellissippi Veterinary Hospital is on the list. He just happens to share the same first and last names with an infamous IRA terrorist.
For complete details of Dr. Hackett's story, check out the Knoxville News-Sentinel article by Hugh Willett HERE.
Yes, a no-fly no-buy law would first remove due process, then it would remove the fundamental right of meaningful self- defense.
Its a bad idea!
