Nothing like flatly ignoring the Constitution's due process protections, right Malloy?
Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy plans to sign the first executive order in the nation to ban the sales of guns to people on federal government watch lists.That might pass muster if you'd been convicted of a crime.
"We intend to prevent, by executive order through my powers as governor, those on government watch lists from obtaining a permit to purchase a firearm in Connecticut," the Democratic governor said in a news conference Thursday.
Or even if you were indicted.
But..... that's not how it works.
If you're on a "watch list" you probably don't know you're on one, until you try to fly. Then you can't.
After you bought the ticket, which is now forfeit.
