The Department of Justice has ordered Apple and Google to turn over names, phone numbers and IP addresses for users of a gun scope app that allows gun owners to calibrate scopes and capture video.
Let me see if I get this straight. The current government says gun ownership in the U.S. is a personal right. But if you use a scope and an app, the same government wants to know who you are?
What do lawyers have to say? Tor Ekeland:
There’s a more profound issue here with the government able to vacuum up a vast amount of data on people they have no reason to suspect have committed any crime
Whatever happened to probable cause?
