    ACLU should have changed their name to SDZI (Socialist Demagogues with Zero Integrity) after dropping their support for gun rights...

    There is such thing as a natural right to privacy.

    Biometric data should not be obtained from people who aren't charged and subject to court proceedings. If the case gets thrown out the data should be destroyed.

    Re: ACLU Says Extracting DNA From Suspects Unconstitutional

    As part of a merit badge for Boy Scouts, I gave my fingerprint gladly at a police station. If I ever commit a crime, all they will see is that I am in their database and have no record. I don't see what the problem is for the government to be able to know someones identity. I would have no problem with the whole nation having their DNA and fingerprints recorded. I think it would be a waste of time and tax-payers money, but there are worse things that we can and do spend our tax money on.

    In what situation that does not involve a criminal investigation, would the government or police ever use someone's DNA or fingerprint? What is wrong with establishing someone's identity? And no, this has absolutely no similarity in any way to bank accounts or other tracking methods. This is a laughable comparison, since one identifies someone in a relatively inexpensive way, the other has nothing to do with identification and everything to do with intrusion into ones personal life at the expense of the tax-payer.

    Well, I thouoght DNA samples of all new borns were stored "somewhere" for identification should they be involved in a crime as a victim. I am not certain.

    Truly amazing.

    Many of those railing against the government's having fingerprints and DNA profiles on the good citizens are the same ones advocating government run healthcare. Once that is in place, your benevolent masters in Washington will have a lot more on you than just indentifying information.

    Would be true if you could find any proof that I support government health care.

    My question is: what is the difference between the government having your fingerprints or DNA on file and them having your gun's serial information or ballistic fingerprint on record?
    The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).

    Sure, I've done it numerous times. What harm will it do? Make it easier to catch you if you committ a crime? Well, don't committ a crime.
    You probably have no problem with the police coming into your house anytime they want...at any hour.....with or without a warrant?


    Right?

    I mean....if you haven't committed a crime...you've got nothing to hide.

    Nobody can steal your fingerprints or DNA and use it to commit a crime.
