    so what "security risk" does taking pictures pose anyways, it's not like people are in a top secret military installation :ugh2:

    this shit is getting out of hand

    like their shopping center is so important that they need that much security anyways :greddy:

    This reminds me of the time I got stopped at the Whitestone bridge for taking photos of the toll booths. I got stopped by the police and would've been thrown to jail If I hadn't say I was hispanic (cop was hispanic too)

    These are pretty gay times for photo enthusiasts.

    :werd: we got yelled at once for taking pics in a subway station, we weren't even taking pics of the station itself just a group of friends the cop just told us to put the camera away b/c he really didn't feel like writing up paperwork for this :ugh:

    Tell him you think this is a great spot for a sentry unit and proceed to start hitting it with a wrench.

    I propose a ban and restriction on all "assault" cameras...

    Program/Automatic modes should be illegal.
    Semi-automatic (aperture and shutter priority modes) are
    ok.
    Autofocus lenses should be illegal.
    Memory cards are to be restricted to 512mb

    Your camera is an "assault" camera if it has a lens hood, vertical grip, or anything else that may make it look "big and scary".

    I don't know what an IR filter does, but it sounds frightening, so let's ban those too.

    I'm writing Hilary Clinton a letter right now
