The “Terrorist Watchlist” bill sounds good at first glance. I know of no single person that wants a possible terrorist to have a gun. The bill will remove the right to due process of those on the “terror watchlist.” What’s the problem? The problem is that the watchlist is a secretive list. As I write this I cannot believe a secretive government list exists! If this is true, who knows how those names wound up on the list. These people may or may not have been found guilty of a crime. Or they might have just ticked off a neighbor who happens to work for the government and can conveniently place a name on the list. Or a name could wind up on the list by clerical error. Apparently there is no way to confirm the names as this is a secret list. If I’m wrong about this list, please, someone enlighten me. When an American citizen is denied their right to a firearm, a judicial proceeding should have occurred. MD House Bill 1000 seeks to just basically skip over that-just trust us-and by the way hand over your guns because we say your name is on a list. Oh and no-you can’t see the list-again trust us. What?!
