    Wonder how long will it be before some bright spark develops a total bleach of your phone,if you input a code once or twice?

    Already exists.
    If you are employed in a lot of companies which deal in sensitive information and want to access your work emails/internal wiki/memos/info etc on your personal phone you must install an application that can wipe your phone remotely, or on input of a code or sequence of physical buttons(if applicable).

    Outlook on mobile also offers a similar feature.

    There are obviously more intrusive ones which would clean your phone so that even a digital forensics expert would have a slim chance of recovering anything, but the 2 methods I mentioned above are already commonplace in certain industries.

    Never forget, the end goal is zero firearms of any type.

    An illegal, unwarranted searches has no bearing on the topic. Not sure what point you thought you were making. Good to know you're support paedo-privacy though.

    Privacy is just that, privacy. Same as firearms. Similarly they can be used for good or bad, but the things themselves are not inherently either.

    Nice use of strawman arguments though. :P

    Also talking about illegal vs legal warranted searches rather ignores the potential for legal, but immoral, laws being passed which would unfairly penalize a segment of the population.

    Everything that happened in the holocaust and the holodomor was legal by the laws at the time, but that does not make it right.
    Huh, on a side note Google flags holodomor as a misspelling(missing from their dictionary) despite it being correct, and having killed ~4 million.
    Bias possibly? :P

    I know many here would disagree on the nature of right vs wrong in laws regarding covid, unprecedented as they were here in peacetime, and even by comparison to the "Emergency" year's measures.

    Legal != moral, particularly with the current trend of legislating morality in western countries.
    I'd have to read the case notes or judgement to answer that.
    Should be spelled out in black and white what the conviction was in the summary.

    "guilty of possessing materials likely to be useful to a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism"
    According to here:
    https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-berkshire-56499185

    Sadly that "crime" is sufficiently encompassing everything that someone could use to commit a terrorist act.
    IE, pretty much everything.
    Perhaps when they do finally outlaw everything but double barrel shotguns over there that will be the argument they use.
    Firearms could definitely fall under "materials likely to be useful to a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism", as could kitchen knives, several common household cleaning agents, etc.
    Your post history betrays you there.

    Looking back on anyone's post history in OT and you don't need a doctorate in political philosophy, or psychology, to figure out the gist of the poster's political leanings.

    Personally I like that there is such a lively debate among the differing axes on the political spectrum.
    I'd actually be very curious to see the results of some other member's political compass tests.

    Here's my most recent one, the idea being you do it periodically and see where or how your views change over time:

    But I'd be pretty confident that he wasn't jailing simply for owning Mein Kampf or similar. As pointed out here, it's on sale in Easons and I'd guess in UK book shops too. Probably thousands sold every year.

    Or just go back a weeks worth of posts to find the discussion here.

    You think Fascism doesn't exist in 21st century?

    You do realise Fascism and Nazism are two completely different ideals. So please define which one you think is a problem and don't be lazy by throwing the two of them together?And the way you can be called a "fascist" these days on Social media or wherever for having a different viewpoint, makes the term as non-insulting and irrelevant.

    Obvious no intelligent reasonable people subscribe to it. Could say the exact same about communism.
    Idiots. But idiots that exist.

    ASFIK there is no law on being an idiot in the World? Or an idiot who espouses a dead and debunkedpolitical ideal,who reads outdated technical manuals on hand to hand fighting and a manual full of dangerously inaccurate chemical formulas on making explosives and narcotics?But obviously not idiotic enough to try them out and reduce the global population of idiots by one.



    Funny you mention that.
    I sure you'd be equally a sympathetic to some Islamist right to preach jihad or buy bomb making books. Or that they shouldn't be subjected to search warrants. :pac::pac::pac:

    They can do and read and preach whatever they want,so long as they don't put their warped beliefs which are just as totalitarian as Communism or Nazism into practise and start bombing, shooting to knifing in the name of their imaginary sky pal ,Allah.
    Same as some Swastika wearing dope can go yell about Hitler being his god,or some moron wearing a red star beret can waffle on about how great Che was. Called freedom of Speech.

    But what we do not do is arrest and imprison them because they "might" commit a crime or do something with their knowledge to harm others.
    It's supposition of a crime and more than the rest a sure sign of a totalitarian society. Yes,you can yell fire in a crowded cinema,but you then must accept the total personal consequences for your action.

    Go preach jihad in your mosque,but don't be surprised if you are doing a long stretch inside,or some other nutter arrives and uses your followers as target practice.

    Go and believe that you have done nothing wrong and have nothing to hide,and that its "good law" that "only targets "padeos, criminals,and subversives and the"alt right wing" [whatever that is]..

    Until someday something you do or post or possess is considered "a criminal act or material to assist in a crime, or contraband" And then tell some kangaroo court you aren't a criminal.:rolleyes:
    What is legal today might be illegal tomorrow and as such a good citizen who has done nothing ,blah,blah,blah.Why do you have it in your possession then?

    Your post history betrays you there.

    Whatever that obtuse statement is supposed to mean.

    Let's be honest, it's not life a piece of cotton is going to stop you getting or spreading a microscopic airborne virus. Look at the masks people wear spray painting or ones used for biological or chemical warfare and compare that to what is supposed to stop a global pandemic. The masks are no more than a psychological technique to give the impression of change and help.

    What’s the big deal to wear a face shield/ mask? Even less say to carry a letter from a doctor saying you are unfit to wear a mask. People are nervous of the virus and they alleviate peoples concerns or unjustified concerns who knows. But that is the law in most countries

    Agreed, however them’s the rules. Plus it’s hardly a massive ask. Overall AGS have been pretty light handed.

    That's probably the best example I have heard for not wearing a mask.

    I would like to see someone argue with that logic.

    Farts are mainly gas, if not then 1mm of cloth will save you from embarrassment .If you have a real problem with this then brown jeans are recommended. Masks are designed to stop liquid born contaminants such as cough "splutter". The diameter of the liquid globules defines how close a weave or print the material in the mask structure should be.

    True, however Covid 19 is mostly airborne when you cough/exhale and not in the droplets. So that sort of negates anything fabric related stopping it's spread.

    It's airborne as an aerosol. Airborne doesn't mean it's a gas, it means that the droplets are being borne by air.

    A mask prevents the expulsion of droplets and them becoming aerosolised during speech or a cough/sneeze.

    And how many could have afforded court cases,as well as now in the future?It's gone from thousands to tens of thousands with the lawyers eyeing up the dC cost awards nowadays.

    Because its their job to. Even in America, where they have a constitutional right to firearms, they still get crap and its up tot he courts to decide

    However that crap doesn't usually come from the police forces,sheriffs depts ,highway patrol etc,etc.It comes on a political level and Federal level and usually Feds trying to enforce it. Bad example too BTW,as the majority of police officers and depts in the US are pro-gun ownership, excluding the Dem held cities of course and have categorically stated they win not enforce gun confiscation laws

    Yes and its called "exceeding your authority" of powers vested to you by this "public safety" legislation. A Garda has no,none,zero,keine,non,nyet authority under the legislation to demand medical information off you,or anyone else for that matter either.

    Not its not. You're blowing it out of proportion. It never came to be and AGS did not use a non existent law or one they made up themselves.
    I was...
    Then you're talking to yourself.
    That seemingly don't work too well here for some reason.
    Big difference between what you perceive to be working well to not existing.
    And how many could have afforded court cases,as well as now in the future?It's gone from thousands to tens of thousands with the lawyers eyeing up the dC cost awards nowadays.
    Somewhat moot as the point is there are AGS, then the courts. That is how the law is set up, so that AGS do not have the power they did prior to the 2009 act. The Persona Designata status is no longer solely with AGS, and the courts will decide if the AGS act outside the law.
    However that crap doesn't usually come from the police forces,sheriffs depts ,highway patrol etc,etc.It comes on a political level and Federal level and usually Feds trying to enforce it. Bad example too BTW,as the majority of police officers and depts in the US are pro-gun ownership, excluding the Dem held cities of course and have categorically stated they win not enforce gun confiscation laws
    Firstly it doesn't matter who it comes from, if its legislated for the police must enforce the law.

    Secondly Ireland has only one police force, my reference was about a country with a right to firearms and yet states face mag bans, firearm type bans, etc.

    The assertion that they make up their own law, and enforce that law is asinine. Its simply not possible. Yes there have been instances of Super's/Chief Supers acting on their own desire/personal agenda, but they soon get put back in their place through the court system where the law is applied and not desire/personal agenda of the Garda involved.

    However this is the exception, not the rule, and some doing this does not make your claim a reality.

    Nope, no, nein, whatever.............

    You are changing topic/deflecting the direction of the conversation.

    Your point was they have no authority but say "abuse their powers" in your own post. Now you are complaining about them asking for information they, according to you, have no right to ask for.

    The original fact is they have the power under legislation. Do you really think the Commissioner woke up some morning in March last year and decided to start stopping people from traveling, walking, going out, socialising, close pubs, restaurants, etc. He simply enforced the legislation passed by the Government.

    Abuse of that power is down to the legislation, how its worded and hence at the feet of the law makers.
