I don't care if it's legal or not.

If I was going to a gun rights rally, I would NOT give the media a photo op by showing up looking like a rapist.

If I was worried about facial recog software, I would wear a baseball cap, pulled low, large sunglasses, and maybe fake facial hair.

There are other ways to disguise your looks besides donning the ski mask and looking like a terrorist.

Cuda, As discussed in the very first post I think we all agree now is not the time.

If you're at a pro 2nd rally, why would you cover your face? It only gives antis one more thing to whine about..."..they're afraid to be seen, they must be hiding something...".

No thanks. If you're going to stand up, do it proudly!

This would be sufficient to defeat face recognition software also while looking less scary.

In Europe hard core demonstrators from the left often wear ski masks or as a minimum cover parts of the face.

We are obiouvsly not at the stage where such demonstrations are happening.
And at this stage it would not be advisable and likely used by the enemies of our republic to show how we are bad and scary...

But if condtions modify...
is there a federal law against a) wearing aski mask in public and b) temporarily taping over the serial? (another solution to the serial would be to cary the weapon so the serial is cobvered up of course)
If you are not willing to let your ID be known just stay at home!!! Like I said we must 'live' our commitment, so if you are ashamed/afraid just let those who are not do the job for you!!!

This is in no way conspiracy theory banter. Just want to clarify that.

Facial recognition software has seriously advanced much more than the average person is aware of. Did you know that your ears are just as unique as your fingertips?

Vegas, which is one of the major proprietors of Facial rec software, followed by government agencies, and large software companies, are all constantly trying to upgrade their systems. That's a LOT of money that's put into these systems.

I'm pretty sure you'd be hard pressed to beat them. Anything you might do would be more for your comfort. Probably not all that effective though.

Perhaps sunglasses are sufficent

In Georgia, it is illegal to wear a mask or device that conceals one's identity (exceptions for safety and holiday wear) OCGA 16-11-38. Note that it does not mention the application of what may be termed makeup, facial, or camouflage cream.

That makes defeating facial recognition software with this, quite legal.

I think I'm missing something. If you open carry all the time, then you're face is always there to be associated with carrying a gun. If you were being 'watched' info on you would already be out there.

The amount of time an agency has to spend monitoring internet use is prohibitive in man hours.
While theoretically it might be possible but the numbers of employees are simply not there, they cna collect the date but ahuman bieng has to read and interpret them the 3 letter agencies simply do not have the number of analysts it takes to track a multi million strong domestic oppostion.


Think about how many millions of americans are oin the internet right now making statements just like we do?

For this reason they simple cannot monitor forums like this one effectively.

But right now we are only in phase 1.

phase 1 is increasingly heated rhetoric and polarization kida like in Bosnia in the 80's over the backdrop of economic problems.

As things prgress, it will change.

So when you are lookign for dissdents who will demosntrate despite the threat of arrest or despite the previous demonstration having been broken up by violence by the "authorities" it becomes very different.

Because then they get to focus on a core element of a possible resiuatnce.
And then the pay off to those manhours is sufficient to justify them.

As I intend not to be intimidated when demonstrating becomes more dangerous I want to think ahead to the moment when it IS worth their while.

And that moment will be when we are nearing the end of the phase of mass demonstrations ( which we havent even entered yet) when they are being broken up by violence.
