December 8, 2015—Professor Eugene Volokh was cited in a BBC News article on President Obama’s ‘No-Terrorist’ gun ban. When President Obama suggested using the federal "no-fly" list to prevent suspected militants from purchasing firearms, he framed the argument simply. According to his critics, however, it's not as easy a call as he makes it seem.
"If you have a constitutional right to do something, the government has to do more than just provide the attorney general's suspicion and speculation as a basis for denying you that right," Volokh writes. "This isn't a supposedly modest, limited gun control measure. It cuts to the heart of the constitutional right itself."
