This letter urges Senators to vote no on Collins Amendment No. 4814 to H.R. 2578, the Commerce, Justice, Science, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2016. Our concerns about this amendment is informed by our policy on the regulation of firearms, as well as our knowledge of the overbreadth and misuse of watchlists, and are twofold: the use of vague and overbroad criteria and the lack of adequate due process safeguards.
