    First no-fly list, then terror-watch, now the ALUMNI List!

    While the ACLU and the NRA say itís already too hard for innocent people to get their names off watch lists, there are calls for the government to create an alumni list to track those whose investigations are closed for lack of evidence. The Orlando shooter, Omar Mateen, was removed from the governmentís list in 2014, so no one in law enforcement was alerted when he purchased firearms used in his attack.

    If you aren't on at least one secret government list, you are failing as a citizen.
