Rep. David Jolly, R-Fla., introduced a gun control measure Tuesday that he said addresses a fatal flaw of previous proposals — the lack of due process.  

The bill would prohibit people on the FBI’s terrorist watch lists from buying a gun. But if they're denied a purchase, they must be notified within 10 days and given an opportunity for a due process hearing before a federal judge within 30 days.
