Terrorist Watchlist | No-Fly List
The National Rifle Association's Institute for Legislative Action issued the following statement on the terror watch list distortions:
“The NRA does not want terrorists or dangerous people to have firearms, any suggestion otherwise is offensive and wrong,” said Jennifer Baker, director of public affairs. “Under the current system, law enforcement is notified every time a person on the list attempts to purchase a firearm. Law Enforcement then makes a case by case decision on the appropriate follow-up for each circumstance.
"The NRA’s only objective is to ensure that Americans who are wrongly on the list are afforded their constitutional right to due process. It is appalling that anti-gun politicians are exploiting the Paris terrorist attacks to push their gun-control agenda and distract from President Obama’s failed foreign policy.”

- Denver FBI spokesman Carl Schlaff said the following regarding FBI Terror watch list in a 2005 Rocky Mountain News article:
"Schlaff said there’s no cause to deny someone a gun just because he or she is on the watch list. Some people are on the list simply because the FBI wants to interview them about someone else who may have a connection to terrorism. ‘You're innocent until proven guilty,’ he said.
Sometimes the watch list will warn local law enforcement to contact the FBI about a person on the list immediately. In other cases, it says only to be aware that the FBI is interested in the person, Schlaff said.” (Ann Imse, “Gun Shoppers on Terrorism Watch List,” Rocky Mountain News, 3/9/2005)
