Sacramento, CA -(AmmoLand.com)- The Federal government seems to jump at every opportunity to catalog and track gun owners. No matter how law-abiding we are, they don’t seem to care.
Just recently, the Wall Street Journal reported that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) had been working with local police using license plate scanners to track and catalog the cars that were in the parking lot of a Del Mar, California gun show.
Just think of the outrage if the government was scanning and tracking the license plates of people at an abortion clinic. Or the local organic foods store. Or a Hillary Clinton rally.
There would be a massive outpouring of anger and disgust.
But in the eyes of the media and liberal politicians: it’s just gun owners. So no big deal.
Well I’m sorry, but it is a big deal to us.
What was the Federal agency using that data for? Who knows.
Was the data secure? Hopefully more secure than Hillary’s email server but we don’t have any clue.
Is it still being stored? Again, we have no way of knowing.
And the only way to get that going is if you demand that your representative launch one.
If there is enough public support, Congress will have to get some answers.
We can only get them to take action on this when there is enough pressure from the public.
