Biometric "registry": A key to YOU

I won't fully restate what I've already said about privacy floating as faintly into the past as goosedown in a headwind. But it basically goes like this (three prior articles on the subject at each link):

  1. Every electronic communication is being captured and stored by the United States government. Everything.
  2. Every person is being individually identified by biometric information, which is only going to become more invasive and more precise.
  3. Every gun will be known, and everyone who (legally) owns a gun will be known. No "registry" required.
  4. Here's the new bit: When technology is perfected that makes it possible for a gun to be fired only by the individual who is permitted to operate it, perhaps identified by their sweat, perhaps genetically identified, only those guns will be legal to produce.

On this last, this is current law in Germany, and legislation is pending in California that would require all guns sold in California to be biometric guns when and if they are adopted by the State as a standard firearm.

"Gun Registries" are for pikers who think small. The money-no-object federal government is lavishly funding uncountable efforts related to controlling people, whether they have a gun or not. By the way: On the illustration above, notice who created it? The National Institute of Health. Hmmmm.

You think this is tinfoil-hattery? Then what, exactly, is Sandia National Labs -- and others -- working on (good luck with your FOIA request)? And why this (from

The immigration reform measure the Senate began debating yesterday would create a national biometric database of virtually every adult in the U.S., in what privacy groups fear could be the first step to a ubiquitous national identification system.

Buried in the more than 800 pages of the bipartisan legislation (.pdf) is language mandating the creation of the innocuously-named “photo tool,” a massive federal database administered by the Department of Homeland Security and containing names, ages, Social Security numbers and photographs of everyone in the country with a driver’s license or other state-issued photo ID. 

For those who still don't get it, let me say it slowly: There. Is. No. Privacy.
