    Well this would let everyone know what kind of magazines (guns) you get and it could give groups like Bloomy's a list of who to target.

    Do they not have a duty under the 4th Amendment to maintain our privacy?

    I would think so, but if not, it's still a sad day in America when the federal government is mining your personal information and using it to make a profit. What's next, the IRS or the Dept. of HHS selling our info to the highest bidder?
