Physician, heal thyself

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) appeared on the CNN program The Lead on Monday. Here is a featured clip:

Wait a minute. Schiff? Adam Schiff? Why on earth does that name sound so familiar?

Oh, I remember! This press release was posted on his Congressional website this past June (emphasis mine).

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), the Ranking Member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, sent a letter to President Obama urging the Administration take a small step to help prevent future attacks like the Orlando massacre. Schiff encourages the Administration to consider providing F.B.I. agents with the discretion to place a tag on someone who had been under a terror investigation that would generate a hit when they go to purchase a weapon. Schiff also reiterated his support for “No Fly No Buy” legislation to prevent known or suspected terrorists from purchasing firearms or explosives.

Some of the names which appear on these "watch lists" are American citizens who have not even been charged with a crime, much less convicted. Yet Congressman Schiff proposes that their second amendment rights be taken away without any due process? Tell me again who "doesn't know right from wrong" when it comes to constitutional matters.
