SayUncle is pointing to a story out of Florida where police are asking gun shops for personal information on buyers in order to find a serial killer who is using the same type of weapon. It’s illegal under Florida law. I have a nasty case of Deja Vu over this story, but I can’t find anything in the archives. I feel like this has happened before, where police were going around collecting information on gun owners in order to catch a criminal.
UPDATE: Jennifer found it here. It doesn’t look like I blogged about it, so it must have been someone else.
