Anyone read about the trial of Sir Walter Raleigh?

"You're guilty because we have some secret witness that you can't confront, and we will now convict you?"

This smacks of the same tone. Denying constitutional rights on the basis of some secret government list. How is this bill even being taken seriously?

Who is a terrorist? How does one get on the list? What are the criteria? What are the mechanisms for appeal? Given that 8 year old boy scouts are on government flight-restriction lists, is this even a proper method?

Even if this bill were to pass (which it likely would not), I don't think this law will survive constitutional scrutiny (well...depending on how the SCOTUS rules on 2A scrutiny).
