    DOJ Demands all User Data from Rifle Scope Phone App

    https://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/do...-apple-google/

    Apple and Google have been ordered by the U.S. government to hand over names, phone numbers and other identifying data of at least 10,000 users of a single gun scope app, Forbes has discovered.

    It’s an unprecedented move: never before has a case been disclosed in which American investigators demanded personal data of users of a single app from Apple and Google. And never has an order been made public where the feds have asked the Silicon Valley giants for info on so many thousands of people in one go.

    Classic government overreach. Hopefully, one of these days, we will get them to understand who works for whom. Believe it or not, ICE was recently involved in an investigation here in Burleson, TX concerning counterfeit handbags. Too many agencies, too much power.

    If they ever demand the personal information of the people who have downloaded Angry Birds 2, I'm sunk.

    Think of how many people use gun apps for one thing or another. I have a reloading app that I sometimes check my loads out on, many people keep track of their gun inventory on gun apps as well. And, think of the number of times this happens with no publicity at all.

    The scariest thing, though, is that this is happening on the watch of a sitting Republican president.

    When Leonidas was preparing to make his stand, a Persian envoy arrived. The envoy explained to Leonidas the futility of trying to resist the advance of the huge Persian army and demanded that the Spartans lay down their arms. Leonidas told Xerxes "MOLON LABE", or "Come And Get Them."

    Trump's not a Republican.

    Then again, most of the Republican Party really aren't Republicans any more either.

    Every time I read about something like this, I think of two books I've read in the past. Animal Farm, and 1984. Probably scare the bejesus out of me if I were to reread them today. If you haven't read them, they will you too, if you do.

    Loved Animal Farm, read it in high school. Recent history tells us that the Clinton and Obama breed of pigs are known to be much more equal than any other pigs.

    As for most Federal Agencies, well, they are deep state actors and it really does not matter who is in the White House to them. They will do what they were going to do no matter what anybody says, or orders them to do.

    It has always been amazing to me, that while information we do not allow the government to gather, it is perfectly legal for corporations to gather that information and then give to government. I am pretty sure that Google and Facebook have already coded the algorithms to find the type of people that become mass murderers. During the 2016 election runup, Project Veritas had separate audio/video conversations with 2 DNC "Fixers" who both said, "We have psycho people we pay to do things..." I wonder where they got those names...probably from one of the many trips Google and Facebook execs made to the Obama White House. Wonder why these "Mass Shooters" have such good timing politically?
    Battle of Wanat: 10 years ago last 13 July, 1LT Brostram was killed in combat killing the last enemy combatant in the outpost. The LT went to the point of decision and made the difference that turned the tide of the battle. The original investigation found the Bde Cmdr, the Bn Cmdr and the Co Cmdr at fault for dereliction of duty. If you want to see what a sarcastic silver star citation reads like, pull up the company commander's silver star.

    As my login name implies, I have long term experience (30 years) in the field of computer systems, data systems, data gathering, computer profiling, etc; worldwide. I can tell you without a doubt, if you use one of big name companies for regular logins, there is data gathering on your login name, your IP address, possibly your real name, and whatever else you put in their respective systems. Use them but understand what you are doing and be careful. You have been warned!
    My 2 cents.
    Most guns out shoot most people.

    If you've never heard of this, it's worth some of your time to investigate.

    One of my goals in life is to shoot more people on purpose than I do by accident. So far, so good.
