That’s an interesting question. I have no idea but I’m going to guess it’s more of the anti-government, taking action or terroristic kind of stuff.
Like, the guy posting explicit threats against the sitting POTUS with pics in gille/rifle before sitting POTUS visits his area kind of thing probably?
I can only imagine people indicating they actively cause problems are much higher on the list that one of how many tens of millions of people that…legally buys guns and shoots them at the range.
They have lists of sites both on the web and in the dark web where the “interesting” folks tend to hang out or usually find their way to. This ain’t one of them, actually most legit gun type sites are not.
Continued or direct threats against the government or ethnic groups will get you in the radar. But it’s usually a combination of flags, not just one and that invites them tracking a person or group. AI is a growing part of the equation and most of it is handled by automation since there’s not enough manpower to monitor live.
When you meet a certain threshold of flags then you become an active investigation and assigned to humans. Buying a bunch of ammo is not really a flag, but buying a pallet of 5.56 while being a known member of a White Supremacy group is of interest.
@BobbyJean - Purchase a Visa Gift Card at the bank. Use that when you order online or in person. No link to your name, and if there were just say “I gave it as a Chistmas present to (inset name) right before he died.”
Not gonna worry about whether I’m being watched. Fed boys already have me and anyone else on a list. Those who have a concealed permit, 4377 or on a firearms related site are being watched.
And they have my prints, and DNA, and pictures, and every email, text.……
Maybe they will hit “critical mass.” That’s so much information about so many people that they can’t find anything about anyone.
Let them know!
I can arm 7 others that were not armed before….
I am one of millions……
We have uses for ammo….
I’m feeling you on that one. I wish I was young and dumb again. I hate this sense of anxiety of wondering what’s next.
It’s only been 3 years, 3 f*cking years. How could the Country I have loved and served for so long, been corrupted so fast.
I buy in small bites and always pay cash.
I always keep quarters on me and I buy few rounds in local gun store for cash.
I don’t care the clerks are pissed off… as long as Government is not able to track my purchases…
