What?! The National Security Agency (NSA) may also be harvesting data that could be used to construct a national gun registry?

We already know that the government snoops – claiming they’re acting ethically to protect us from terror attack – are collecting and storing data on our phone calls, emails, texts, etc. Now, could it be possible that NSA surveillance also gathers info that they could use to find out who owns what kinds of firearms?

The bulk collection authority could potentially be used to supersede bans on maintaining gun owner databases, or laws protecting the privacy of medical records, financial records, and records of book and movie purchases…

Our government agencies are using tax dollars to attack our own good citizens, yet ignore the actual invaders running through our fenceless borders…
