That's amazing. Coincidentally, I lost all my handguns in a boating accident. It was on a big pontoon boat. Long time ago. Must have been going 30 knots, when I banked right and they just fell off!

It's amazing how many things get lost in boating accidents. In Maryland alone I'm surprised that the lake water levels haven't risen by two inches!

They have been doing that for years, supposedly with protections in place to keep them from being "misused". However, it appears that the government decides what misuse is on a case by case basis. You had better believe, that every purchase of everything you have ever made is recorded and can be retrieved if desired at some point in the future. If they can retrieve the presidents phone calls, they sure as hell are recording yours. Plus the Alexa, etc. is listening to everything that goes on in your house. Your phone is apparently tracking your location at all times, supposedly even if it is turned off (I am not up to speed on that one), but I know that your paths of travel and temporal data are being stored somewhere. It is just a matter of getting the authorization to retrieve it and analyse it. This is not paranoia, but becoming a widely understood fact of life in today's technology world. Just think when you have an electric self driving car? Someone else can just lock the doors and drive you to wherever the round up is happening. Personally I think that is why the big push for self driving cars is happening (other than to reduce the cost of professional drivers). I personally do not know anyone except a couple of millennial democrats that think self driving cars are a good thing, yet, billions are being poured into that industry. The potential for abuse is unbelievable.
I have no doubt that some of what the everyday citizen says and does is or can be monitored in one way or another. However I often wonder about the volume of that data. The government can't properly staff the Postal Service, any Social Service department, manage the DOD, DOJ and any number of their own agencies or keep the cartels from importing drugs or MS-13 from their illegal activities for starters. How do they manage to effectively store, process and utilize every single call, transaction, Alexa conversation, phone call, credit card transaction, some argue even cash transactions, belch, burp and fart that all 330 million citizens do especially the legal activities? The resources required would be unimaginably staggering and time consuming not to mention unable to be done effectively by anyone in the government or whomever they contract with/oversee.

"They" may want you to think they can, but until I see stronger, credible evidence of the ability to, my paranoia stays in check. History has shown that for every roadblock government up, somebody's found a workaround.

And if you really want to F with them, put your phone in an anti-static bag every so often so it looks like you've gone off the grid.... and then pop up "way over there!"

I understand that Obozo instituted a system to spy on every single American with a digital footprint and develop a database. This database could then be used by the our intelligence(using the term loosely) agencies to deal with those not playing along with the liberal agenda.
It certainly sounds like he was planning a "fundamental transformation" of our republic.
Coming for "ghost guns" will not end well and likely lead to an all out civil war, IMO.

Any bets on record sales of Polymer 80 and AR 15 lowers soon?
Sounds like a great candidate for a Presidential Veto.

Bloodymore City has a camera on every street and alley and they cannot catch the people that shot each other in broad daylight. OR, Maybe they don't want to?

If they are, they are finding more of them than “real” guns.

Last I checked based on GAO audits, TSA misses stuff like 95% of the time.
