 Can one avoid these registration requirements by flying an armed drone and getting the NRA to lobby against registration?
The most dangerous crimes usually involve conspiracy. They should physically surveil people who have raised enough suspicision and get the information they need by making a deal with the little guy to squeal on the big guy. Consider that in the past a lot of this digital evidence wouldn't even have existed. It would have been private conversations that took place in person or by courier or some other means that it would not even be possible to know about unless you were...
When someone has a bad idea before a tragic event, and the tragic event makes them say their same idea louder, the bad idea doesn't become a good idea, and they're not reacting to the event, they're exploiting it.

The implication that law enforcement can't function, never has functioned, and shouldn't be expected to function without violating constitutional rights and individual liberty is one I reject. I think even expressing jokingly that abuse is to be expected is destructive to people's determination to protect their rights. Outrage fatigue has to be countered. Official abuse is an outrage the first time it happens, and it's an outrage the millionth time it happens.
