Alabama congressman: No to banning gun sales to terrorist watch list

U.S. Rep. Robert Aderholt (R-Haleyville) is explaining why he's against banning people on the federal terrorist watch list from buying guns.

U.S. Rep. Nita Lowry (D-New York) has proposed an amendment to do that to the 2017 funding bill that includes the Justice Department.

It might sound reasonable, Aderholt said in a statement, "but like many liberal solutions, they are only skin deep."

Aderholt said, "The reality is many people find themselves on the terrorist watch list by mistake. Something as simple as a mix up of a birth date can put someone on the list and the process to remove a name can take months or even years."
