Democrats say the Cornyn bill doesn’t go far enough since it includes a “probable cause” standard that would require law enforcement officials to prove that a gun buyer is an actual terrorist rather than a suspected terrorist.These boys do hate them some due process don't they? Unless, of course, it regards crimes they committed.

The House will vote on an anti-terrorism measure next week that would prevent terror suspects from purchasing guns, House Speaker Paul Ryan told GOP lawmakers Thursday.Time to call or email your Congressman. Well, what are you waiting for?
In a conference call with the House Republican conference, Ryan, R-Wis., outlined a plan to vote on a legislative package that responds to the recent terrorist shootings, including limiting access to firearms by those on federal terror watch lists.
"The terrorism package will include measures to disrupt radicalization and recruitment, and a provision to prevent suspected terrorists from buying guns," a GOP aide said.
The measure comes after Ryan earlier this month ordered a House terrorism task force "to look at additional legislative options," following the Orlando terrorist shooting that killed 49 people and wounded 53 others.

I understand newspapers need to make money. There isn't much ad revenue left in the age of craigslist, spam, and the World Wide Web. But the Los Angeles Times and Washington Post have both put up paywalls that prevent me reading news stories. If they think I am going to give money to the house organs of fascism, they are profoundly mistaken.
