So... where are those who keep trying to tell me that a police state could never happen? That 2A supporters are paranoid and being in some fiction where a small group of power holders manipulates the law to give itself more and more power over the populace?
There's a difference between tinfoil hat wearing and being knowledgeable enough about history to see how it can repeat itself - piece by piece, good intention by good intention.

For years, criminal defense attorneys, academics, and civil libertarians have warned that an anti-hacking law, originally designed to protect NORAD's computers, needs to be reformed. Federal prosecutors have used the law to prosecute the late Aaron Swartz and a Missouri woman accused of lying on her MySpace profile.

This is how the Cylons got in you farkholes. You made everybody and anybody part of some network that didn't need to be. And you lost Caprica because of it. You invented a problem, then made the populace your fix for it.

/wait hold up, did art just imitate life or the other way around?

Why does it need reform?
Did it get bent out of shape?

They're doing it right in some people's estimation.  DoJ is behind this, gives prosecutors bigger clout in plea negotiations.

BumpInTheNight: Would you like some tea for this party?

Not even joking, FreedomWorks (one of the two main groups spawned by Friends-of-Koch, major TEA group) and the ACLU are both against this expansion.

Seriously, if you get THOSE two groups aligned against you, you're farking up.
