Yahoo Sports would like to salute the athletes who have heroically fought for our freedom.
Rick: The problem with this entire concept is that while it sounds good to the uninformed, they don't actually understand the no fly list. There is no law in place forcing the airliners to deny service to anyone weather they are on the list or not. If, for example, a person on the no fly list tried to board an airline it is up to the discretion of the airline to allow or deny that person the ability to fly on one of their aircraft. It would (hopefully) work the same way when it comes to gun sales. During the background check the seller would be informed that the person trying to purchase a firearm is on a terrorist watch list, or whatever you want to call it. It would then be up to the seller to determine if the risk is worth the sale, but no legal ramifications should be held against the seller. I don't have a problem with this, I do however have a problem with the fact that the Government can put anyone onto that list that they want without due process or any set reasons to do so. There is also no path set in place to be removed from those lists, which is wrong on so many levels.
