Hot Air and Kurt Russell rip up the latest gun control theme
Right here. A choice bit:
"Which of the terrorist attacks cited by Obama in his speech -- which included two he had never before acknowledged as such, the Fort Hood shooting and the Chattanooga attack on a military recruiting office -- would a no-fly gun ban have prevented? None of them. None of the suspects were on the no-fly list. Farook and Malik flew last year with no problems, and Fort Hood terrorist Nidal Hasan was still in the Army. In fact, even after Russia warned the FBI about Boston Marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev in 2011, the U.S. allowed him to fly to Russia and back in 2012.
In other words, the no-fly list is not just unconstitutional, it's also a red herring. Democrats want to change the subject from the failure of this administration to prevent these attacks. When government feels the need to strip Americans of their constitutional rights -- including the right to bear arms -- they should prove their case in court while allowing for full due process. That is precisely why our founders wrote the Constitution in the first place: to protect a free people against the whimsy of tyrants."
