This is some interesting facts I found on the net.
Summary: "Terrorist Watchlist Screening." Government Accountability Office, May 5, 2010. http://www.gao.gov/products/GAO-10-703T



"Membership in a terrorist organization does not prohibit a person from possessing firearms or explosives under current federal law."



[83] Report: "Terrorist Watchlist Screening." Government Accountability Office, May 5, 2010. http://www.gao.gov/new.items/d10703t.pdf



Page 5: "In total, individuals on the terrorist watchlist have been involved in firearm and explosives background checks 1,228 times since NICS started conducting these checks in February 2004, of which 1,119 (about 91 percent) of the transactions were allowed to proceed while 109 were denied...."

Some examples of "Terrorist orginzations" likely include

>the National Rifle Association
>The Second Amendment Foundation
>American Civil Liberties Union
>Any group with the words "tea party" "patriots" or "9-12"
>any immigrant rights group
>any muslim group regardless of criminal activity or lack thereof...

basically, anyone the current government doesn't like.

want to disarm anyone? just declare them to be a terrorist, how do you get on the terrorist list? a secret, are you on it now? also a secret, how do you get off it? oh that's a secret too....

I submit that the current administration likes these groups so seeing them on watch list might be a surprise.
