From the November 23 edition of Fox News' Fox & Friends:

STEVE DOOCY: Meanwhile, here's something else. Take a look at this cover of the New York Daily News. “No where to hide, Jihadi Wayne.” There's a photoshopped picture of Wayne LaPierre, the guy who runs the National Rifle Association. It looks like some Democrats are trying to turn this terror event and the threat of ISIS into more gun control legislation because they say that people on terror watch lists can buy guns. And the Democrats are using the threat to get more gun laws passed. It looks like that, essentially, is what the agenda of the New York Daily News is. These are the same Democrats who have said in the past, watch lists target innocent people. Keep in mind, we don't want terrorists to wind up with guns, but unfortunately the way the watch lists work, there are a lot of innocent people who wind up on them, for instance Ted Kennedy was on a terror watch list.  

ELISABETH HASSELBECK: A child was at one time. 

DOOCY: Stephen Hayes, who works on this channel, were on watch lists. And so what they're doing, it looks like, is trying to turn the ISIS threat into a perfect opportunity to pass more gun control laws.

HASSELBECK: The NRA also getting involved here, saying the NRA does not want terrorists or dangerous people to have firearms. Only our objective is to ensure Americans who are wrongly on the list are afforded their constitutional rights to due process. 

DOOCY: We don't want terrorists to have guns. 

BRIAN KILMEADE: Right, but this is a phony issue they're bringing up. All of a sudden they're profiling saying 'hey make sure these terrorists don't get guns, the people on the no watch list.' I for one would like to push to get Ted Kennedy off it once and for all.
