This is really interesting. ATN is in the news again. The Feds want all the information on the folks who downloaded the app because of possible illegal export issues.

Yep there is more at play here. They Feds are on a fishing expedition because they are suspecting someone is shipping these things out of the US. They obviously know something is going on.

From the Constitutional perspective, this is horrendous and I hope that Google and Apple don't comply without a court order. I hope the courts say no, unless the feds can ask for specific people or information, not just some blanket "we want all your data" request. But...what happens when Google and Apple decide they will no longer allow these "gun" related apps on their platforms? That could cause a huge mess for the end user.

Hard to believe that ATN is involved in something shady ...
