    Sounds like a good way to get round about gun control for some despot dictator in the future. Just call anyone that says certain things a terrorist, like someone does on this website, and boom, no guns for you.

    Gun control without conviction - states "the subject of a terrorism investigation by any Federal department or agency" in the past 10 years.

    Not later than 90 days after the date of enactment of this Act, the Attorney General shall establish a process by which, for any person who is, or within the previous 10 years was, the subject of a terrorism investigation by any Federal department or agency— (1) the Attorney General may delay the transfer of the firearm or explosive to such person for a period not to exceed 3 business days and file an emergency petition in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the transfer of the firearm or explosive, and such emergency petition and subsequent hearing shall receive the highest possible priority on the docket of the court of competent jurisdiction and be subject to the Classified Information Procedures Act (18 U.S.C. App.); (2) such person receives actual notice of the hearing and is provided with an opportunity to participate with counsel and the emergency petition shall be granted if the court finds that there is probable cause to believe that the person is engaged, or has been engaged, in conduct constituting, in preparation of, in aid of, or relating to terrorism, or providing material support or resources therefor; (3) if the emergency petition is denied, the Government shall be responsible for all reasonable costs and attorneys’ fees; and (4) the Attorney General may arrest and detain such person for whom an emergency petition has been filed where probable cause exists to believe that the person is engaged, or has been engaged, in conduct constituting, in preparation of, in aid of, or relating to terrorism, or providing material support or resources therefor.

    What happens when the "terrorist" already has a gun? Or three?

    The actual effect this proposal will have on a "terrorist" acquiring firearms is:

    A - Nada
    B - Zilch
    C - Zip
    D - Zero
    E - Bupkis
    F - All of the above

    Sorry, yes. "Suspected" terrorist. We wouldn't want little Johnny Rottensnots and Grandma Betty to get mixed in with the likes of Abdul Al-Bin-Blome and his pals. Oh, wait..............

    On a completely different subject: how long does take a US Citizen to get taken off the No Fly list?

    Removal from no-fly list took 8 years, $4 million of pro bono attorney work and federal judge via @dailyitem https://t.co/zaL66S201h

    It was one folk, not multiple folks, that got taken off the list. So realistically, chances of getting off the list are effectively zero. Of course, I'd posit that the majority of people on the lists don't know they're on the lists in the first place since you aren't informed about it.
