Constitutional privacy amendment needed.

I’d like to propose a pre-emptive addition that could prevent future erosion of our freedom.  This amendment would prohibit two things from happening in the future:

Universal marking or tracking of citizens using implanted devices, mandated tracking devices,  tattoos,  branding, and/or any other personal marking technology to be developed would be prohibited.

A universal biometric database containing all citizens’ DNA profiles, fingerprints, retinal scans, facial recognition, and/or other unique markers later discovered would be prohibited.

This would not prevent maintenance of convicted criminal data by law enforcement, use of GPS tracking devices as part of a court-ordered sentence or probation requirement, or DNA databases for military personnel entering combat.  It would simply prevent such technology from being used to infringe on the freedom of the population as a whole.
