A 360° Discussion of Foreign, National and Local Policy Issues

No Fly, No Buy

Since we discussed the prospect of a “No Fly, No Buy” limitation on gun sales last week, there have been several articles on the subject. The State of Connecticut is considering banning sales of guns to individuals on the US “no-fly” list.

There was some discussion about whether the list might be too broad to be reused for other purposes…attached is a NY Times article discussing one US citizen’s issues and a lawsuit he is pursuing.

NYT “No-fly list has left Muslim Air Force veteran detained in Turkey”

Among other things, the suit described in the article asserts that this citizen is being deprived of certain rights without the benefit of due process.
