Pentagon testing mass surveillance balloons across the US
If they start using the "Gorgon Stare" cameras in those balloons, they'll have the ability to track up to 1000 "targets" simultaneously with each balloon.

Here's what we're gonna see:

More posturing from the left on banning assault weapons

More gaslighting from the right and the NRA, until they run the clock out on that news cycle

And then back to normal
Same as always.

How that second one ever gained currency is just beyond me tbh. Why is it not the time?! Who decided that?!

I don't think repealing the 2nd amendment is going to be politically feasible anytime soon. And if they somehow forced it down the pipeline I'm afraid we could have a civil war.

The FCC filing notes that this networking includes video information. That suggests that the balloons might also carry a Sierra Nevada video capture system called Gorgon Stare. This wide-area surveillance system comprises nine cameras capable of recording panoramic images across an entire city simultaneously.

The American right is too authoritarian to fire on its own government.
