“Documents Show DHS Built Domestic Surveillance Into Drones-Can Track Cell Phones, ID If Citizens Are Armed”
So. Let us recap, shall we? The US federal government, expanding at breakneck speed through the bureaucracies, is increasing the number of drones it will be using for domestic surveillance — drones that can track cell phones and gauge whether citizens are armed and which are under the control of those who can’t tell us yet whether or not they believe they have the right to target a US citizen on US soil for death by drone. That same US government has driven up the cost of ammunition as it stockpiles for federal training purposes nearly all of the country’s .40 hollow point (which type of bullet legislators in at least two major localities wish to ban, despite it being mandatory for hunting in at least one of those localities). The police and government agents are exempted from bans on “high-cap” magazines, and are permitted to carry “assault weapons” — though when DHS requisitions them they are called Personal Defense Weapons (by class, more dynamic than “assault” rifles, having select-fire functionality), DHS agents being more deserving of personal protection options than the mewling masses, who need to stick to their function as economic units in service to the state. And the Vice President himself is counseling people to protect themselves (in illegal, reckless ways) with shotguns — even as western cowboy states like Colorado, whose Democratic legislators the Veep contacted and directed how to vote on proposed gun-control laws, and having been overrun in the legislature by progressive locusts, are trying to sneak through bans that would actually make many types of traditional pump-action shotguns illegal to own.
Is that about right?
But we needn’t worry. And in fact, we’re being slack-jawed paranoiacs whose hysterics over a non-existent attempt by government to take our guns is pitiful and unhelpful, NRO conservative summit speaker Joe Scarborough reminds us, through his very conservative sneers.
Sorry, but if you’re going to piss on my head and tell me it’s raining, the least you can do is hide the ladder and tuck away your junk. If for no other reason than plausible deniability.
Whereas this here? Is just plum arrogant.
