Cougar 1

Just when you thought it couldn't get any worse

Not only did a national ID card just get approved, it also gives the Sectretary of DHS immunity from the courts in certain instances. Wil Wheaton's blog has more info (or for the LJ inclined).

I actually think it's good that this doesn't contain provisions protecting against a gun owner's database, since that means it's more likely that the NRA will fight this. And the more people fighting this, the better.
