Due Process Under Attack?

Folks are speculating that the bill to deny people due process of law by putting their names on a watch list is about to be introduced. Being on a list would prohibit you from buying a gun. We’ve known a while this was one goal of mayors against guns. This push would be bad. After all, you have no way of knowing you’re on the list until you try to fly or buy a gun. It’s otherwise secret and cannot be appealed. And it’s fraught with errors, since it has included senators, babies and grandmothers. And it’s not a far stretch from denying one civil right to denying another just for being on a list.

    I bet it’s going to deny Conceal Carry Licenses as well.

    Markie Marxist sez: “Punishing people who are on a list is what we Marxists are all about. That’s how totalitarianism works. If we didn’t have lists we wouldn’t know who to punish. We can’t have purges without lists! Aside from the fact that it wouldn’t be within the communist tradition (we’ve always used lists), there’s the impracticality of it. We can’t punish our enemies, such as private gun owners, if we don’t have lists to tell us who they are. It’s just contrary to common communist sense.”
