During a hearing about Apple and Google's user location-tracking practices (both Apple and Google have been secretly saving people movements with their cell phones with hidden programs), Deputy Assistant Attorney General Jason Weinstein said that the government wants wireless network operators to store user location data for a period of two years. "When this information is not stored, it may be impossible for law enforcement to collect essential evidence," he said. I do not usually start threads of a political nature, it is not what I come to gun forums for, but this chaps my behind quite a bit. This whole mindset of treating every citizen like a potential criminal even though they have committed no crime is disgusting to me. What's next? Do we start making every citizen check in with a law enforcement official weekly to account for their activities just in case they commit a crime in the future? Do we start recording people's phone conversations just in case they do something wrong some day?
