"The TAPS Act has all the earmarks of a paranoid police state that considers everyone a potential threat. It will create a “Joint Behavioral Threat Assessment and Management Task Force to identify individuals that exhibit patterns of dangerous behavior that MAY precede an act of targeted violence.”"

That is the beauty of weasel words, they seem specific but are open to infinite interpretation

"patterns of dangerous behavior that MAY precede an act of targeted violence"
Define patterns and what constitutes one
Define dangerous in terms of to whom, what constitutes dangerous and how it is to be recognised as such
Define what constitutes behaviour, actions? words, deeds, thoughts?
and most dangerous of all
"That MAY precede an act "
Does May here mean, permitted, could, potentially, possibly, can, will, be sanctioned?

As @CeliaVL points out this wording can be applied to everything from going to the toilet regularly to plotting a revolution and will make them all potentially as illegal as one another.

It is a Gestapo manifesto
