    on the 'Terrorist Watch List' from having a gun, it would necessitate making the names on the list public. Or at least informing individuals that they're on that list. This has not been the practice, most people - i.e., Ted Kennedy - don't find out they're on the list until and unless they try to board a plane.

    Not that I'd be averse to making the list public. That would certainly cause some ruckus and ripples through society as people find out they're on the list and come back with serious lawsuits because they don't belong there. Damage to livelihoods for innocents on the list would be very real, after all.
