    A friend of mine shares a full name and BD with an IRA terrorist. Gets flagged/delayed/special screening every flight and every firearm purchase gets delayed… but he’s not the sort to make waves. Seems like a good case for standing though.

    Since this is not statutory but regulatory (it’s done by the regs not the law), it should be able to be challenged on violation of privacy grounds.

    It’s not entirely true. They export names to the Violent Gang and Terrorist Organization File (VGTOF) to be used for investigative purposes.
