Rudy Giuliani suggests electronically tagging Muslims on terrorist watch list

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani proposed tagging Muslims on the government's terrorist watch list as a means of tracking their movements, NJ.com reports. Giuliani, who advises Donald Trump on terrorism and national security, said of the proposal, "I would think that's an excellent idea. If you're on the terror watch list, I should know you're on the terror watch list. You're on there for a reason."

People on the U.S. terrorist watch list don't get a trial or chance to defend themselves before being listed — an issue gun rights advocates have raised in their arguments that those on the watch list should not be banned from buying firearms.

Giuliani cited France as an example of such security measures; in the Normandy church attack Tuesday, one of the suspects was known to have twice attempted trips to Syria and was wearing a monitoring bracelet at the dictate of anti-terror officials.
