They are against prior restraint of 2A when there is no criminal conviction!
The Second Amendment and the terror watch list
Some Republicans are coming under undue ridicule for opposing an effort to block the purchase of weapons by people on the U.S. terror watch list. In an editorial for next week, we'll defend Republicans like Maine's Susan Collins and South Carolina's Lindsey Graham, noting that those on the watch list have been convicted of no crime and should not be stripped of constitutional rights simply because the government has decided they deserve extra scrutiny when they fly.
We will, though, propose that the Department of Homeland Security be notified whenever someone on the list attempts to purchase a weapon, so that the purchase can be blocked - or at least investigated.
