The Denying Firearms and Explosives to Dangerous Terrorists Act would:
- Allow the attorney general to deny the purchase or transfer of a firearm or explosive to a known or suspected terrorist if the prospective recipient may use the firearm or explosive in connection with terrorism.
- Maintain protections in current law that allow a person who believes he has been mistakenly prevented from buying a firearm to learn of the reason for the denial, and then to challenge the denial, first administratively with the Department of Justice, and then through a lawsuit against the Justice Department.
I’m sorry, but what about exports? I cannot take seriously someone who peddles positions about weapons restrictions of an exclusively domestic variety, particularly a person who sits on subcommittees for intelligence and defense and whose appropriations committee facilitates the transfer & sale of weapons abroad, which weapons land in the hands of others who are as suitably suspect as those who land on lists targeted as such.
