  •  I'm not even talking about gun data (0+ / 0-)

    I'm talking about one giant database that has your history of being arrested, convicted, subject to a court order, or any other involvement with the court system.

    The article said there were limits to the data they analyzed.  I'm suggesting the government collect more data on everyone for the sake of amassing data.  Ideally, this would mean giving everyone a government-issued unique ID number that can be used in more places than a SSN.

    •  I'm sure that already exists. (0+ / 0-)

      Tying things to a SSN is part of why I'm sure there are errors in it.

      •  In the long run (0+ / 0-)

        I'm looking for the opportunity to create a national ID card that would allow for the linking of all sorts of government databases.  Gun registration, background checks, voter registration, and citizenship/immigration status checks are some of the things I want to facilitate.
