Are these restrains and intrusions real? ....or hypothetical?
Hypothetically, if you didn't do anything 30 years ago, you're not prevented from doing absolutely nothing today. That's about it.
I sure enjoy being fingerprinted and having copies of my driver's license made when selling a case of empties at the junkyard because of a law to "deter scrap metal theft". Around the corner from the cashier's door there was a WFE and a stack of weights for a 4020 that were stolen from my neighbor. Cops refused to do anything because my neighbor couldn't proove they belonged to him. I guess if it doesn't have the owner's name on it it's up for grabs. Welcome to the new USA. Laws for the sake of laws, and laws that torment the honest and do nothing to the criminals.
I could add a hundred or so things to RedDawg's list if you'd like. They may not affect you, but they affect somebody.
