    Trump Admin Is Considering Using Amazon And Apple To Determine If Citizens Should Own A Gun

    The Trump administration is considering a proposal that would use Google, Amazon and Apple to collect data on users who exhibit characteristics of mental illness that could lead to violent behavior, The Washington Post reported Thursday.

    The proposal is part of an initiative to create a Health Advanced Research Projects Agency (HARPA), which would be located inside the Health and Human Services Department, the report notes, citing sources inside the administration. The new agency would have a separate budget and the president would be responsible for appointing its director.

    HARPA would take after Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, or DARPA, which serves as the research arm for the Pentagon. The idea was first crafted in 2017 but has since gotten a renewed push after mass shootings killed 31 people in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, in August.

    you can be sure the new dept will be as conservative and patriotic as npr

    Indiana, a state that is trying to remain free.
    Uncle Mao, Chairman Ho, Joseph Stalin, and other despots would loved to have had such a system.

    It's a good thing this could never be misused against the citizens.

    The claim started with the Washington Post so I think it is their idea of a joke.

    wow real life thought crime. It's one thing to have threats made on social media raise a red flag, basing your eligibility for constitutionally enumerated rights based on your amazon shopping history is a whole different ballgame.

    Do we have a supreme court anymore?
