Oh...NOW you're concerned about the Constitution

Deny them the right to travel? Hey, them's the breaks.

Tap their phones in a blatant disregard for both civil liberties and the law? No problem!

Throw 'em in a black hole with no charges and no lawyer? Great!

Don't allow 'em to buy guns? Wellll, now hold on a second.

Pay special attention to these paragraphs:

In a letter this week to Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, NRA executive director Chris Cox said the bill, offered last week by Sen. Frank Lautenberg, D-New Jersey, "would allow arbitrary denial of Second Amendment rights based on mere 'suspicions' of a terrorist threat."

"As many of our friends in law enforcement have rightly pointed out, the word 'suspect' has no legal meaning, particularly when it comes to denying constitutional liberties," Cox wrote.

Do I really need to say anything more?
