There is an ongoing controversy regarding our nation's "no fly list," its constitutionality, the ability to purchase firearms, and our nation's overall safety and security. President Obama refers to the obstacle posed by the NRA here:

And whaddaya know-- the ACLU and a federal judge agrees with the NRA on this issue:

https://www.washingtonpost.com...

https://www.aclu.org...

While most Democrats (aside from those in lockstep with the ACLU) seem to agree that people suspicious enough to be kept off commercial planes are suspicious enough to be kept from buying firearms, ammunition, and explosives, the GOP is MUCH more divided on this.

So, what are the opinions of members here, and do you agree or disagree with your preferred presidential candidate's stance on this issue?

No-- I was thinking of posting the video to "Can't Touch This" by MC Hammer.

What are your views on it, since you're here?

Undecided to be honest.

The issue is with citizens and the fact that they have zero recourse to get off the list. Until there is a process that an individual can use to clear his or her name, it is unconstitutional.
