Every single thing you send online, through text, or say over a phone is monitored. I am sure they have code words they have, and when they find them they flag it and research it further. Again I ask, Home of The Free??? They can't intercept messages fast enough on Facebook when some psycho blogs about shooting up a movie theatre for a week then does it, but they do know if you say something negative about our great government.
I just placed an order for 500 rounds of 9mm ammo. I am sure that got flagged somewhere. I asked the parents and in-laws for ammo for Christmas over email, I am sure that got flagged somewhere. It is within our very lifetimes that the government will knock on your doors and ask to see your firearms, ammo stores, etc. The question is, when that day comes, what will happen? All this talk about civil war makes me think about that scenario.
Over the years I have worked a few jobs where I have met some off the wall people. People who burried AK-47s in PVC pipes all over their property 15 years ago. People who have picked up pieces and parts in their travels and ammassed enough to put together some amazing weapons. When I was a kid my best friend's dad was some Special Forces guy, never around, always away. He had a live rocket launcher. No lie. How did he get it? No idea, but he had it, and one night when some spotlighters came down his mile long private drive he pointed it in there direction. I have never since seen someone drive so fast in reverse in the dark!
He also had several live grenades and plastic explosives. One thing I remember vividly was we watched a vampire movie and we were scared 10 year olds so we made wooden spears and stakes to protect ourselves that night. Well my buddy chucked one of the spears and wouldnt you know it it went right into a power pole and split the power line, pinning it to the pole. His old man came out, took a rope and frayed it, tied on some 1/2" nuts, swung it around and up and it wrapped around the spear. He then pulled it out. Then whooped my friends ass for about 5 minutes.
I am getting off point. We are all under watch. It is no difference then communism. They know how much you make, who you talk to, what you do online, how much money you have in the bank, and how many registered weapons you have.
