The Lautenberg List

Pretty decent, balanced article in the CSM about Sen. Lautenberg's odious legislation to allow the AG (currently Eric Holder) to deny firearm purchases to persons on the Terrorist Watch List.


Civil libertarians, too, have concerns about the list. "There's no way to find out if you're on the list or not, and no way to assure that you can see the evidence that got you on the list or got you off," says Chris Calabrese, counsel for the ACLU's Technology and Liberty Project in New York.

"There's no reason why it couldn't become a political list," he says.
