In his speech last night from the Oval office, President Obama called for Congress to pass a law restricting gun purchases by people who appears on the No-fly list? Do you think that is a good idea and Constitutional?

I don't think you understand the 2nd Amendment. If you did, you would't think it is rediculous. It has kept our country from a military coup as happened in many other nations. I do agree with you on the due process of no-fly lists.
The government can take anything of yours that they want via a dude in an air conditioned office pushing a button. Your gun is a paperweight.
What country are you living in? Have you heard about the Bill of Rights?
You might have miss understood my question. Is the idea a good one and is it Constitutional? Please reply based on those two points. I have an opinion but was curious on how others think on this topic.
Yes it's a good idea, and the constitution died with Patriot Act. Too late to revive it. People just pretend it matters when it affects them. Privacy is gone. Really, what else matters?
Lovemychris, I hope you are being satirical. The Constitution is still important in many ways. This current President have abused his power and shredding it for his political advantage. For most of us, the law and the Constitution still matters.
Riiiiiiiiight. He invaded country, tortured, and shredded constitution. That was Bush. Can't pick and choose demons!
You might not agree with Bush's policies but he did not abuse his power. He got Congress to vote and supported the war in Iraq. Unlike the current President who has issued executive actions to change our immigration laws...
OK, now you see, we are in TOTALLY different universes. This is why we do need to split the country....you will never take responsibility for what went on prior to, and other than Obama. It's no use even discussing, there is NO common ground. Unreal!
How do you see that happen? Are you pushing for another civil war? I think there are common grounds and common sense solutions. We need to understand who is behind the curtain causing divisiveness. Don't fall for their ploy.
According to you, it's Obama.THAT'S the ploy!
My point in the question is explore whether this law if passed will be Constitutional and secondly if it will be effective.
And I have answered....after Patriot Act, constitution means nothing! You guys only throw it around to keep your guns. You could care less about women's rights under the constitution. It's a farce!
