Elaborating on the Government's explanation that the NSC Act is necessary given the rising threat of terrorism, Khalid said there are enough laws to fight terrorism and Islamic State elements.
"We have enough laws to fight terrorism and crime, such as the Security Offences (Special Measures) Act, the Prevention of Crime Act and the Prevention of Terrorism Act," he said at a Hari Raya open house at the Selangor police contingent headquarters Tuesday.
"The NSC Act will only be used if the country's national security is under threat," he said.
It was reported that the NSC Act, which came into effect Monday, has more sweeping powers than the now-repealed Internal Security Act.

Penang Northeast district police chief Asst Comm Mior Faridalathrash Wahid was reported in a portal as saying that investigations into several reports against Namewee, or Wee Meng Chee , were ongoing and the rapper would be arrested "as soon as he returns."
ACP Mior Faridalathrash said police could not divulge Namewee's location due to the investigations, adding that records showed that he is now overseas.
"We will arrest him as soon as he returns to help in the investigations into the video clip recording," he said.
Several NGOs in Penang where the video was shot at the floating mosque have accused Namewee of insulting Islam.
Police said investigations found that the video of four men dancing and singing was filmed at the mosque, Masjid Terapung in Tanjung Bungah in Penang.
ACP Mior Faridalatrash said the mosque chairman had lodged a police report after he was told that the video was shot there.
This is not the first time that Namewee, a 33-year-old Johorean, has courted controversy. In 2007, Namewee gained notoriety for mocking the national anthem in a parody, Negarakuku, in a rap video.
Two years later, he lashed out at Tenaga National in an expletive-laden video clip about frequent power outages in his hometown Muar.
His 2012 single, F*** Lynas – Good Day to Die, lambasted the Australian government over the company's rare earth project in Kuantan
