Default Gun-Show Customers’ License Plates Come Under Scrutiny

Gun-Show Customers? License Plates Come Under Scrutiny - WSJ

Federal agents have persuaded police officers to scan license plates to gather information about gun-show customers, government emails show, raising questions about how officials monitor constitutionally protected activity.

Emails reviewed by The Wall Street Journal show agents with the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency crafted a plan in 2010 to use license-plate readers—devices that record the plate numbers of all passing cars—at gun shows in Southern California, including one in Del Mar, not far from the Mexican border.

Agents then compared that information to cars that crossed the border, hoping to find gun smugglers, according to the documents and interviews with law-enforcement officials with knowledge of the operation.
When a government is that scared of their citizens that they break the law they swore to uphold it is time for the people to act.

November elections are coming up fast, and I would hope that the people in this country sweep congress and the elites out of office.

I doubt it's true because police usually aren't that smart, but I guess the FBI is a cut above If it was true, how smart and sīmple for immigration and gun smuggling. So here's my resounding Good!

It's really sad to see a citizen of this country cheer their government on when they do illegal crap. I guess that is why you're such a hitlery fan.

This policing plan, if true, just perpetuates the myth that guns purchased in the US are a major source of guns in gun free Mexico and that these guns are being purchased at gun shows.

The 90% of Mexico guns is a persistent story bandied about by Hillary and Company to justify F & F, and has its origins in a group of guns confiscated b the Mexican government and believed to have moved to Mexico from the US.

Mexico asked the US to confirm and 90% of that already suspected batch came from the US.

Why, golly, yes it's true. Mexico gets Americans to buy fully automatic firearms at gun shows and then they smuggle them in to sell to the drug cartels at very expensive prices to them. Without our gun shows, the cartels are hurting.

[/sarcasm]

On a side note, anybody gullible enough to cheer the government monkeys on for all the crap they pile on the population desperately needs an ass kicking all the way to Kingdom Come and eternity.

Not referring to anybody here, so nobody get your panties in a wedgie.

I have to wonder, if that is the SOLE use of that information.

If past performance by government is any indication, you don't have to wonder.

4th Amendment...Illegal search and seizure...

Law enforcement can use this if there is a "just cause"...And "conducting second amendment activities and business" is NOT "just cause"...

Then you would have to argue license plates are illegal. Which won't hold water.
