Since the Orlando terror attack, Democrats have been pounding their chests demanding the Senate pass new gun control legislation – in addition to the thousands of laws already on the books around guns in this country. They brought four pieces of new legislation to the Senate floor and none passed, Senate Republicans seemingly holding the line on protecting the Second and Fifth Amendments.
Seemingly being the key word.

Senator Susan Collins (R) of Maine is the sponsor behind ‘No Fly, No Buy.’ Collins said, “Essentially if you’re too dangerous to fly you’re too dangerous to buy a gun.” Sound familiar?
This is just common sense. It's time for Congress to act. pic.twitter.com/SsJuC4D7Pm

Huh. And here we thought Republicans protected our rights. Our bad.
FYI- Sen. Collins' bipartisan bill blocks gun sales to both No Fly and Selectee lists – about 2,700 Americans and 109,000 total persons

That’s a lot of Americans being stripped of their rights without due process, Senator Collins.
FYI – Sen. Collins' bill blocks gun sales to both the No Fly and Selectee lists – about 2,700 Americans — not 800 as some have claimed.

So even more Americans. Shew!

Not entirely sure what makes Collins’ bill any different from what the Democrats proposed, she uses the no-fly list in her language as well.
Sen. Collins' bill is perfectly targeted at Dems' language about "no fly, no buy." Actually uses the no-fly list. pic.twitter.com/NoTQhuID1h

Also note, “If our government has decided …” considering we don’t know how our government decides who goes on this list, this language should concern everyone. Especially Republicans.
