This is more important than background checks for owning guns or even owning guns at all. This is about opening up a back door to your privacy for all governments as well as for talented malicious hackers will going forward have an opening to connect to all our personal electronic information....That information pretty well now starts collecting before you are even born whether you like it or not. This back door would also allow governments and those with malicious intentions and even anyone/or corporation with big data collection abilities into your personal communication system.
Most people now use these systems and connect to even more personal data links and connect to others. Even tribal camel herders in deserts use these systems on a moment to moment basis. Do you think serious mass murders could find a way to still do what they intend? Did people mass murder before electronics?
Just think if a tech savvy hacker wants to target important people. This back door can give those hackers the access to any data as well as the government having access to the potential bad guy (that might decide take precautions to go around that open door) but all the rest of us will also be unlocked and have unprotected privacy for our information as well....In the case of suicide bombers and attackers it is worth the risk that no one will catch them before they carry out what plan they intend to take a death risk anyway. But what is the risk of this privacy invasion to the rest of us that plan to go on living and not kill ourselves?
You may say good people should have nothing to hide....Do you really believe everyone that gets hold of your personal information intends to use it for your good and understand you than you are not being honest with yourself. What will happen if the USA leads this privacy invasion? Think what will happen to people that are already living in nations that love to oppress and suppress their residents. Many people would love to find out things that could disadvantage someone else and give them an advantage over that person. A simple difference of opinion or a major life catastrophic event is enough to do the trick very often. Think of that co-worker or friend that used what you thought was as honest disclosure against you...Rare is the person that hasn't experienced that more than once.

Designers are imbuing their designs with texture, giving packaging a tactile quality that drives shoppers to grab them off the shelf.
